Litchfield National Park - 28th August 2009

The Litchfield National Park is the perfect place to visit with the hot weather we're having at the moment. With swimming possible at Florence Falls (see above), Buley Rockhole and Wangi Falls, we spend the afternoon having a swim at each one, before driving on to the next still in our swimmers. Florence Falls is the most scenic out of the three locations, with the waterfalls still gushing towards the end of dry, due to being spring-fed. Buley Rockhole is a series of deep rockpools that the river cascades through, upstream from Florence Falls, whilst Wangi Falls is a very large plunge pool at the bottom of two falls. We also go on the Shady Creek Walk at Florence Falls, which passes through some delightful monsoon forest. We're particularly happy that this is all accessible by sealed roads, without long walks, as we're still not wanting to drive much on unsealed or 4WD roads after the roughness of the Gibb.
