Walks were great and the swimming holes are perfect afterwards. Get up early to beat the crowds as it is school holidays.

You can easily see Litchfield park in a day but much better to take your time and relax.
Termite mounds, waterfalls, swimming holes and walking tracks are all there. If you have a 4x4 you can explore some more interesting off road attractions.
Best time to visit is dry season when you are more likely to have good access and croc free swimming! Always check the signage as rangers patrol regularly and will close swimming areas if there is any danger.
After a challenging walk to Florence falls swimming area I was surprised to see at least 100 people trying to access the water! Even in remote areas it can be busy!
Wangi falls is my favourite spot with easy access swimming and 2 beautiful waterfalls.
There is also some excellent walks.
Good facilities such as change rooms and toilets are found at both Florence and Wangi falls.
No rock art but then it is not Kakadu. A beautiful spot and an easy drive from Darwin.
Highly recommended.

Everyone talks about Kakadu but Litchfield is closer, far cheaper to visit and so much more enjoyable, You can swim beneath several waterfalls at different locations without fear from crocs. And if they are there they are most likely to be fresh water crocs and thus prefer to avoid humans.

We had a swim in Florence Falls, beautiful, highlight of our trip!

Just a short drive from Darwin, there really isnt much to do other than nature so make sure to bring your own food and drink etc

This park is lovely and so easy to get to. Great roads and most spots accessible via standard 2 wheel drive. It can be done as a day trip from Darwin. Florence falls are one of the many highlights and they are spectacular. There is a changing room in the car park toilets so you get get into swimming gear and it is absolutely worth it. Swimming in the big pool with the falls cascading above is a brilliant experience. Near by are the pretty Buley holes that are good swimming options for the smaller family members. The whole park is great and also check out Berry Springs on the way there or the way home to top off the visit.
