Tjaetaba Falls, Litchfield National Park

3.4
#7 of 8 in Nature in Litchfield National Park
Stop at the top of Tjaetaba Falls for a picnic lunch or simply to admire the surrounding bushland, inhabited by wallaroos. To reach the lookout, cross the bridge over Greenant Creek, then walk up a gently sloping shady trail that follows the creek. Once at the top, take your time to enjoy the serene bushy surroundings and the views of the water tumbling over the edge of the escarpment. Note that this is a sacred Aboriginal site, so swimming is allowed only in the rock pools above the falls and not at the base. A visit to Tjaetaba Falls represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Litchfield National Park day trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • It's a great spot away from the crowds. The swimming up there is not amazing (at least not at the end of the dry season) as there was a fair bit of slime floating in the water, but it was cool and refreshing (and is a pool with a view). The kids were able to do the walk up (which was a nice relatively short bush walk) and they had a great time.
  • A must do great swimming holes
