Litchfield allows visitors an opportunity to explore the stunning beauty and dramatic contrasts of Australia's Top End. With waterfalls cascading into pandanus lined plunge pools, crystal-clear waterholes and spring-fed streams. Bushwalking trails will take you across rugged sandstone and through pockets of monsoon rainforest to reveal stunning views and historic ruins.
Towering termite mounds share the grasslands with wallabies and an abundance of birdlife.
With so much to see and do, an overnight stay is essential to truly experience everything Litchfield has to offer.
The majority of attractions are accessible by 2WD on sealed roads however some attractions are restricted to 4WDs and may not be open during the Wet Season months.

Local Culture

Litchfield National Park has a rich history from the local aboriginal people (including the Wagait, Kungarrakun, Marranungu, Werat and Waray people) to the Finniss Expedition led Frederick Litchfield in 1864, the early pioneers, and more recent defence force base during World War II and subsequent mining leases.

Aboriginal Art

Traditional artwork in the Litchfield area is diverse. Local artists work with acrylic and ochre to create paintings on canvas, painted stone slates, rock art and didgeridoos. The local style regularly features animals or animal tracks (typically totem animals) although landscape artwork is also available.
