Weather in Darwin in March is extreme and a trip to Litchfield National Park we found an amazing waterhole to cool off in.

“Waterfalls and swimming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Great place for a day trip or two to do some swimming and picnic/bbq. Lovely waterfalls and unspoilt top end country. Hire a car and do it yourself. No crocs.

“Litchfield - lots to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Florence Falls, Wangi Falls, Tolmer Falls and all those Termite mounds. Lots to see, lots to do. When you come this far north, it's a must see :) Just take your swimmers and lots of drinking water....oh and maybe some sunscreen and bug spray. Love the great outdoors :-)

“Lichfield National Park, Northern Territory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Wow, leving Darwin, the termite mounds, then Buley Rockhole was pretty good, Florence Falls even better but go the extra mile in a four wheel drive with a wild hike to TJaynera Falls and you will be blown away. A quiet beautiful swimming hole, no crocs, with waterfalls, superb. On return stopped at Wangi Falls. A long, day full of adventure.

We have been to Lichfield several times. It is a very interesting place not far from Darwin. Lovely waterfalls and walks to enjoy.
