I only spent 1 day in the park but it was not enough time by far. Still I got to see the giant termite mounds, the magnetic mounds, went swimming in the Wangi waterfall and the buley rockhole (beware it gets slippery and a saw a guy crack his head pretty good). I also saw florance falls and tolmer falls, and hiked a few short paths through the bush. It was an amazing time in absolutely stunning natural wilderness that only NT can provide.

Me and my girlfriend rented a car and went to Litchfield for a night. We had a great time.

Not a far drive from Darwin. We firstly visited the termite mounds which were absolutely massive.

Next we went to the rock pools which were nice and cool to relax in and have a splash around.

Afterwards we went to Florence falls which is a spectacular waterfall where you can swim and easily waste hours on end.

We camped nearby in a campsite with clean toilets available and fire places to barbecue or just light a fire. We had a great night.

The only cons were the fact it was so hot it was almost impossible to sleep. Also we didn't see any wildlife which was a shame.

All in all it was a great trip. Worth it. Next time might think twice about camping.

My partner and I enjoyed Litchfield over Kakadu. Here you can swim in Florence Falls, which is amazing, and you find you're swimming with lots of large fish. There are a couple of swimming spots to choose from, but we enjoyed swimming in Florence Falls. And we got there early enough before the more people got there. Otherwise there is a bit to see here, and the best thing is you can enjoy half the day or take longer and spend a full day here and either way you get to enjoy all of it.

I spent 1 full day out there.
Easy to get to with 2wd access to main attractions.
Was before rain season had come and still plenty of water.
Highly recommended to everyone, as long as you aren't a grub that leaves any rubbish behind at any of the locations like some low life people always seem to manage to do.

The trip from Darwin was early, but well worth the stops and sights. The Termite mounds were huge and fascinating. The swims in Florence Falls and Buley Rockhole were nice, cool break- in beautiful places.
