“This is the 10/10 best day trip place to visit,when visiting Darwin !!!!”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Visited on 19th May 2012

It took us 1.15 hours to get here from Darwin city,as the highway is a speed limit of 130km ,after you get out of Darwin suburbs.
We had a fantastic day here,the weather was just perfect!!! We stopped off at the termite moulds first ,as this is the first stop of interest to look at.it where the termite live,took some picture and we were off again,before the bus loads of people left.

Next stop was the bluesy rock hole,natural springs in the natural setting.the water was cool this time as l have been before in september,where the water was warm.a short few steps down the mountain and you were there,a nice fleshing swim to start our day off.

The Florence falls was the next stop on the same road as the bluey springs.this was a bit more of a walk down some steps,patched pathway was at the bottom,there was a medium size water fall and a natural watering hole to have a nice swin.
Most of the roads are sealed here at Litchfield,but if you have 4wd you can camp at in the campgrounds and go on the dirt tracks to other places of interest.

Thornier falls was a lookout only for some quick photos,after this wangi falls for a picnic lunch there and another swim before we started to head back.they are rebuilding the cafe here,but at the moment there was a kiosk van in the car park ,if you don't bring any food.

The water at wangi was very cool to get in,but then we did warmed up to it,it has 2 larger water falls with large safe swimming area.no croc here at all,maybe some fresh water ones.there is a small lookout where bread was thrown into the water ,there is certainly lots of fishes there.

We had a very enjoyable day here away from Darwin,in my view this would have be the most visited place in Darwin for its natural beauty,piecefulness and very clean place to visit.

This is my second visit here to the park and my third visit to Darwin and l would come here again anytime with new traveling company's to see it all again.

This is our final stop at darwin before we head back to Melbourne.its been a great 3 weeks holiday of Asia and Darwin.

Ciao Elisa & Sonja Geelong. Australia.

“Amazing”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

Went over the wknd, we hired a car via budget for about $350 for 4 days. So we decided to go to the waterfalls on the Sunday. We drove up early and arrived within 90 mins. We stopped at Wangi Falls and took some photos as it was closed to swimming. We were unable to stop at Buley Rock Hole as there was no car spaces availible. Ive been before and loved them. Clean and crystal clear water. So refreshing and really quite beautiful. So we ended up stopping at Florence Falls walking the 138 stairs down and gosh wasn't it magnificint, my boyfriend was suprised just how clear the water was and we spent probably 2 hours there. we only left as we didn't pack lunch and we were starving. but it was an amazing day spent together. Pack lunch and remember to take your camera.

“Fun in the Sun”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

Perfect day for swimming in all the crystal clear waters around the park! Great hiking tracks and lots of wildlife and plants of all types to admire. Take lots of water and good shoes etc. Hikes can be rocky. My calves are still sore days later! :)

“Swim in the amazing rock pools at Burly and Florence Falls!”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

All this for free! A beautiful drive through the park (on your own or with a group) takes you to some incredible sights! See 2m high termite mounds, gorges, waterfalls, birds and rock wallabies. A great family day outing with safe swimming in designated areas. Highly recommended!

“Really great area and beautiful waterfalls”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

We went to the termite mounds which were fantastic, viewed Florence Falls from a lookout, Buley Rockhole which was great but lots of people. Havent seen anything like it before.
Then we went to Tolmer Falls which is a bit of a walk but worth it. We finished off with the Wangi falls and it was beautiful there. It was quite a way from the carpark but under shady trees. Unfortunately there was no swimming because of crocs in the area.
We were going to continue to Darwin but the road is not sealed and very rough so had to back track and go back out the way we came in. There was no where to buy lunch so you need to take your own. The Litchfield Cafe wasnt open but luckily we got a pie at the Safari camp nearby. It was a good day out but if you are into walking, you would need to stay somewhere in the area overnight.
