What travellers are saying
- No matter where one travels, waterfalls seem to capture the interest of travelers from all around the world. Florence Falls is no exception. Waters from the Buley Rock Hole flow to Florence Falls. We learned the tabletop plateau has several spring-fed streams. During the dry season, the water stored in sponge-like underground cracks seeps out to feed this waterfall. Swimming is allowed in designated areas only. Some of the trees in the area are Carpentaria Palms, scraggily shrubs and pine-shaped trees.Written 30 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The waters originate upstream from freshwater springs and flow towards the Florence Falls. The pools are ideal for those wishing to take a refreshing swim among Buley Rock pools and cascades. There is an upper and lower entrance to the pools as well as a short but easy loop walk around the pools. Waters are replenished every wet season.Written 29 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Depending on when you visit, the Wangi Falls are different during the dry and wet seasons. In the dry season, the falls are not as dynamic as it is in the wet seasons. Swimming in the plunge pool was not allowed when we visited because of the possibility of an increased risk of crocodiles. Regardless, the falls provide a beautiful photo opportunity. The rock face area around the falls and other nearby areas are sacred places for the Aboriginals who believed spirits in the form of humans, animals and plants created the features of the landscape here. History notes these falls were a special place for indigenous women to bathe and swim. It is believed men who looked at the women were lured into the waters and to their death.

- Termite hills are quite prominent in this area of Australia. Some make one wonder how industrious these termites are to build such large mounds. We saw several and stopped at one for a photo op. We were in and near Litchfield National Park. Our guide said to thrive, the termites need a balance of humidity and warmth. The mounds live for about 50 to 100 years which is the amount of time the queen termite is alive. Some mounds can be as much as 6 feet tall.Written 29 January 2023
- Yet another beautiful waterfall in NT! There is a nice walking path from the parkering area towards the viewpoint. It is not possible to come as close to the waterfall as e.g., Florence fall. However, it is still very impressive seen from the viewpoint.Written 25 January 2023
- This was a great place to visit. Luckily we had hired a 4WD as there's no way you'd go there with a conventional vehicle. Nature is amazing - and this is one of those interesting places to visit with fabulous sandstone rock formations. It does take a while to get out there, and you need to drive carefully/slowly on the track, but if you have the time then make the effort.
It's a shame you need a 4WD but then again it would be too crowded and they'd have to upgrade the road. Best to keep it 'quiet'.Written 27 June 2022
- It was a wild ride in a 4WD, but only a short distance. Had to go through a long body of water but it was totally fine in a high clearance snorkel vehicle. The walk to the falls is mostly shaded and green, and the falls are just stunning. Water is chilly at first but just swim around for a while and it's perfect. Beautiful scene of huge cliff, gushing waterfalls and lush greenery.Written 20 May 2021
- It is 1.7 kms to campsite number 8 but worth the walk. You can stop at any point along the track an jump in the creek to cool down. Plenty of refreshing rock pools.Written 28 December 2019
- Another one of the Litchfield National Parks waterfalls & pools, it’s a 2.7 km return walk slightly steep nearing the pools. Not large pools but was very nice and refreshing with some great views.Written 5 May 2018
- Wow, this Rockpool is a surprise! A short walk and small climb up and around a rock ledge and your presented with a spectacular rockpool. The adults and the kids loved jumping off the rock into the plunge pool. However, we didn’t go up to the higher Rockpool.
We will definitely return as we live in Darwin.Written 14 July 2020
- We stopped off at Tabletop Swamp for a bit of a look. It is a very pretty swampy area and I think if you stopped here long enough you would see a variety of birds and small creatures.Written 14 June 2021
- Closed, but we snuck in anyway... worth the short walk. Informative sign, old buildings, peaceful. Best to go early.Written 16 June 2022
- Our flight started in Batchelor (their base in the wet season). The doorless helicopter allowed for great viewing and easy photography. We did an aerial loop of Litchfield National Park taking in the Termite Mounds, Lost City and all the falls which were flowing due to the recent rains. Absolutely spectacular scenery. The highlight of the trip was landing at Sandy Creek Falls were we were able to have a cooling swim in the waterhole before a picnic lunch provided by NT Air. All in all a really amazing experience and we can highly recommend this trip. A must do activity when visiting the Northern TerrritoryWritten 21 March 2020
- This was a fantastic trip with Brett the pilot. What a great way to see the key features of the park and experience it all in a great little helicopter. Great commentary and loops around sites to get some great photos.Written 19 July 2017
- Dean was our guide/host/caterer for our four days in Kakadu and Arnheimland. Is incredibly knowledgable combined with a interested and courteous approach. Adapted to our interests and needs. Thoroughly enjoyed our trip and highly recommended.Written 2 April 2016
