Litchfield National Park, Australia in Photos

Litchfield National Park

Litchfield National Park was another stop on my 6 day photo safari in Australia’s Top End.

Being so close to Darwin (approximately 100 km south-west) Litchfield National Park attracts over 260,000 visitors each year.

And it’s easy to see why with stunning tropical waterfalls and swimming holes, monsoon rainforests, giant termite mounds, wildlife, historical sites, walking and 4wd tracks.

Below is a collection of my photos to give you a taste of what you can expect on your visit.

  2. Is there any known explanation how these termites manage to figure out the magnetic orientation?

  3. Knowing how hot it is up there, the pool under the waterfall would be irresistible! I first saw the termite hills forty years ago and then about 30 years ago – they still look the same. lol

  4. Beautiful photos! Having a pool bellow the waterfalls seems to make the place extra special.

  6. I just ran across your web site. So glad your exploring Australia right now. My family and I are headed there this coming March. So excited. I’ll be spending a lot of time on here to get some great information. THANK YOU! BTW we are staying in a bed and breakfast during our stay in Brisbane. I want to make sure it’s a great area for us to stay. http://eskdale.com.au/ here is the web site. I know your a busy persons but if you could check it out that would be great. We plan on heading North to the Australian zoo one day, heading to the Glass Mountains a day and spend a few days around the Brisbane area in general. Again just want to make sure we’ll be happy with this spot of if there is another place you would highly recommend. Much appreciated. – Tualatin, Oregon
