Wangi Falls is the best-known and most popular attraction in Litchfield National Park – a park renowned for its accessible and pristine natural beauty. Accessible by sealed road, the falls are found near the western boundary of the park, 150 kilometres south of Darwin.
Sit on the expansive manicured lawns of the picnic area and watch the water of 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, camping ground with hot showers and barbecues nearby.
There are various walking tracks, including a three kilometre track that takes you up over the falls and back to the car park. The falls can be closed to swimming periodically, especially during the tropical summer from October to March, as currents in the pool can become strong and dangerous, but the fast-flowing falls make for spectacular photography. At these times the kiosk and picnic facilities remain open.
