We stayed here in our camper van for 2 nights in the wet season. We stayed under a shelter section because of the rain. Very good facilities, hot showers, good cooking facilities - the BBQ is free, microwave, refrigerator, simple restaurant and really nice swimming pool with a deep end and lots of bubble jet sprays. Green grass and lots of trees. We paid $32. Take our own alcohol, as it is VERY EXPENSIVE so stock up in Bachelor before your trip to the amazing water falls and rock pools. Wangi Falls is breathtaking at this time of the year - but the restaurant is DREADFUL!

“Fantastic tour!”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Our family of 7 visited Litchfield National Park on a one day AAT Kings tour and was a highlight of our Darwin holiday. We made some fun stops on the way from Darwin to hand feed water buffalo and emus and view some huge termite mounds. Litchfield National Park was spectacular. As we were visiting in the wet season, the country was lush and green and teeming with birds, wallabies and other wildlife. Water over the roads did not impede road travel, thank goodness, as we were travelling in a four-wheel drive bus with an experienced tour leader/driver. Swimming in pristine freshwater streams beneath gushing waterfalls, and leaping into cool deep rock pools - the perfect way to spend a warn abd humid afternoon and the perfect ending to an excellent tour. The tour leader, Mark, was really wonderful too - he was very informative and attentive to the needs of all those on the tour, and provided a fascinating, humorous and respectful commentary that everyone on board enjoyed. I recommend this tour for all ages, as the road trip is fun and comfortable and not too long, healthy food and lots of cold water are provided, the walking tracks are flat and shaded, and there is so much natural beauty to experience in the park.

“Good for a swim”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

We had been booked to go to the Katherine Gorge which got cancelled, so we had to settle for the Litchfield National Park, which did not disappoint, the cathedral termite mounds and the magnetic mounds was stunning. We did not want to do the swimming settled for the walk instead, but the children (and adults) who did had by the sounds of laughter an fantastic time, the waterfalls were in full flow due to the wet season, lunch was very good. Mark our coach driver was knowledgeable, funny and great with the children on the trip. A great day trip.
