Description

Wangi Falls is the best-known and most popular attraction in Litchfield National Park. The falls are found near the western boundary of the park, 150 kilometres south of Darwin along sealed roads. Relax in the expansive manicured lawns of the picnic area and watch the water from the two falls cascade over the rock escarpments into the large plunge pool below. Take a dip in the pool, which is surrounded by lush monsoon rainforest. There is a kiosk, picnic tables and barbecues with a camp ground and hot showers nearby. There are various walking tracks, including a three kilometre loop track that takes you up and over the falls and back to the car park, or a return option to the Treetop viewing platform. The falls are regularly closed to swimming during the tropical summer from October to March, as currents in the pool can become strong and dangerous. During summer, the fast-flowing falls make for spectacular photography. At these times the kiosk and picnic facilities remain open. Dogs are not permitted. No camping or overnight parking allowed.

What an awesome swimming hole. We spent a few hours, swimming under the falls and throughout the pool. There's a great little Rockpool a couple of metres up the smaller falls and the water is a touch warmer. There's also a rocky area where warm water enters the pool to the left of the main pool entry. We also walked up to the treetop platform. There's lots of birdlife around the pools too. Awesome spot! Follow us on our travels Korker Adventures on FB, YouTube and Insta

Finally open today (9/7/22)! We watched the rangers pull the empty croc trap out yesterday. Busy already today but it's truly magic and lots of space even with big crowds.
