LITCHFIELD NATIONAL PARK INFO
Most people consider Litchfield to be the little brother of Kakadu National Park, a jewel in the crown of the Northern Territory. A sandstone plateau, refered to as the Tabletop Range, is approximatly 1,500 sq km in size and attracts 250,000 visitors per year.
Named after Frederick Henry Lichfield, explorer and member of the Finniss Expedition that travelled from South Australia in 1864 ,was the first European to have visited this area. The declaration of Litchfield as a Park occured in 1985 after the negotiation and surrender of pastoral leases to the Conservation Land Corporation.
Litchfield National Park lies approximately 130km's southwest of Darwin near the town of Batchelor, widley known as the gateway to Litchfield National park, has it's own unique attractions such as the Coomalie Cultural Centre you should not miss.
LONELY PLANET - LITCHFIELD
This magnificent park is something to write home about. Four waterfalls drop over a wide sandstone plateau, spilling into idyllic waterholes surrounded by patches of rainforest. People come for the sensational swimming, bushwalking and camping – and, boy, do they come on weekends.
The two routes to Litchfield (115km south of Darwin) from the Stuart Hwy join up and loop through the park. The southern access road via Batchelor is all sealed, while the northern access route, off the Cox Peninsula Rd, is partly unsealed and may be impassable in the Wet.
About 17km after entering the park from Batchelor you come to what look like tombstones. Only the very tip of these remarkable magnetic termite mounds is used to bury the dead; at the bottom are the king and queen, with workers in between. Metal objects won’t fly from your person to these world-exclusive magnetic mounds; rather, less dramatically, they’re perfectly aligned north to south, designed to regulate the temperature, so the termites’ thin skins can cope with the extreme seasonal changes.
