Create an itinerary including Florence Falls
Take a refreshing dip in the clear waterhole at the base of Florence Falls. Nestled in a nook of a wet monsoon forest, the two waterfalls pour down over a series of segmented tiers. This favorite swimming spot in Litchfield National Park can be easily accessed via a flight of about 160 steep steps--the climb back up takes a little more effort. The lookout at the top offers panoramic views and an opportunity to snap some postcard-perfect photos. Expect to see a number of people at the plunge pool, most of them sitting around the edges and just a few taking a swim.

  • Approx 1hr 45 mins from Darwin city. The falls we enjoyed the most is Florence waterfalls within Litchfield National Park. The plunge pool is awesome There is 2 different ways to access it. Suggest go down to the falls via stairs as its a steeper decline and walk back via the track on.way back to car. Takes about 30 each way. 2 waterfalls. Gorgeous swim and so clear. Near the rocky shallow part u do get fish that nibble at your feet. Suggest to bring 1. a swimming noodle to swim out to where the falls enter the lagoon. 2. Small umbrellas on days expecting rain especially if you are with a baby or wanting to protect your belongings like electronic devices
  • Beautiful spot. It was a cold day when we visited and it's a little tricky climbing over rocks to view the Falls but my family managed. It doesn't have as much room to spread out down the bottom as Buley but it was a very lovely spot. A fairly steep walk back up the stairs or you can take a longer, scenic walk back up the car park.
