Litchfield National Park
Swimming in the brilliant plunge pool is reward for the four-wheel drive and short hike (30 mins) to Tjaynera/Sandy Creek Falls.
Escape the crowds to the serenity of Tjaynera Falls/Sandy Creek Falls in the magnificent Litchfield National Park.
As the crow flies, only 90 kilometres south of Darwin, these falls are accessed by a four-wheel drive track located 1.7 kilometres south of Blyth Homestead. The car park here has its own history, and is on the site of a timber cutting camp used during the mid-1900’s when paperbark & cypress was cut as mill timber.
Walk the 1.4 kilometres through the open valley lined with paperbarks to relax in the plunge pool at the base of the falls. Enjoy the stunning views, sit down to a picnic lunch or take a refreshing dip in the clear waters beneath the falls. These falls attract less traffic than the readily accessible cascades and pools elsewhere in the park, and with campground facilities, make for an idyllic spot for a weekend away.
