Darwin locals are fortunate to be within relatively easy reach of some of my favourite national parks in Australia. In less than 90-minutes drive, you can be within some of the most outstanding nature spots with magnificent landscapes.

One national park that we absolutely love, is Litchfield National Park. The park is famous for its waterfalls and swimming holes, walking trails, and 4WD tracks.

Most people visit the park on a day trip from Darwin, but if you have more time to spend exploring the park, you’re in luck, because there is a plethora of fun things to do in Litchfield National Park to keep you entertained.

Below are the top attractions in Litchfield National Park for any type of traveller…

Is Litchfield National Park Worth Visiting?

It’s easy to see why Litchfield attracts 260,000 visitors each year; it boasts stunning tropical waterfalls and swimming holes, magnificent rainforests, giant magnetic termite mounds, an abundance of native wildlife, aboriginal historical sites, and many walking and 4WD tracks.

There’s a lot to see and do, as well as off-the-beaten-path adventures to have. It’s one of the best places in the Top End of Australia to go swimming, with waterfalls plunging off the edge of the escarpment into crystal-clear, safe swimming holes. And by safe, I mean salt-water crocodile free!

There are not many places in the Northern Territory where you can safely swim without fear of crocs, so for this reason, it’s 100% worth visiting.

If you have at least a week and you’re exploring the Top End of the Northern Territory, then I highly suggest a looped road trip from Darwin taking in Katherine Gorge, Kakadu National Park, and Litchfield National Park.
