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.

  • Our daughter’s favourite stop in our trip! She got to swim under a waterfall. Beautiful swimming hole in a pristine setting, a lot of stairs if you go to the right but easier longer trail to the left

  • What a lovely spot. Litchfield National Park is a real gem in the NT. It’s close to Darwin, an easy drive and the countryside is so Aussie. Florence Falls is gorgeous. We found a little spot to swim.....  more

  • Beautiful spot for a swim to cool off on a hot day. Water so clear and deep you can see the fish 🐟 Quite a strong current flowing from the waterfalls and easy to over estimate your swimming ability. Tour guides should probably warn unsuspecting tourists who are not strong swimmers to be careful if they don't already.
  • 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.
