Litchfield National Park, Batchelor

4.7
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Batchelor
Originally home to the aboriginal Wagait people, Litchfield National Park is noted for its monsoon rainforest and well-marked trails leading to a number of waterfalls. Many of the waterfalls create small streams and natural pools suitable for swimming and diving. The area abounds in wildlife and includes several sites where you can observe rare colonies of native bat species. Be sure to drop by the historic Blyth Homestead, built in 1929 and now serving as an educational reminder of the tough conditions the early settlers of these remote areas faced. Nearby, you can also visit huge termite mounds, erected by thousands of insects with a north-south orientation to control temperature inside their habitat. Designated campgrounds are available for visitors planning to participate in longer bushwalks. Litchfield National Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Batchelor Edition.

  • We were delighted with our stay at Litchfield! We were able to take advantage of two natural swimming pools, beautiful, at the feet of waterfalls and accessible without the need of a great hike. Relax and enjoy the beautiful weather of the Northern Territory.
