Swimming in the Refreshing Waterholes, Litchfield National Park


Okay, it may have had a little to do with the 46 degree celcius September days, but we just loved all the waterholes in Litchfield National Park.

Located 100km south-west of Darwin, Litchfield NP can be accessed all year round along a sealed road via Batchelor. It is enjoyed for its bushwalking (many 1-3km tracks), 4 x 4 Driving, camping, picnic facilities and magnetic termite mounds. But the most popular activity would have to be swimming!

While there we swam at all the major swimming spots: Wangi Falls, Florence Falls, Tjaynera Falls, Buley Rockhole and Walker Creek.

Walker Creek, Litchfield National Park

Wangi Falls is the most easily accessible swimming spot, and therefore tends to get fairly crowded, especially when the bus tours arrive around lunchtime. After a 1.7km walk on a 40+ degree celcius day we had Tjaynera Falls to ourselves, and loved the number of interesting swimming spots at Buley Rockhole.

But our favourite is Walker Creek. Here you walk along a track which winds past 8 walk-in camping/swimming areas. The first swimming area, Rocky Falls is approx 600m from the carpark, and you'll find one every 200m or so, after that. Even during peak season, you'll usually have one of these holes all to yourself, and it's definitely worth the walk.

NOTE: If visiting during the wet-season, most of the 4WD tracks in Litchfield NP are closed, and some waterholes, including Walker Creek become unsafe for swimming after heavy rains.
