Wangi Falls Campground

Wangi falls is one of the most popular locations in Litchy. The location is popular not only to photographers and nature lovers but thrill seeking swimmers too. Swimming is allowed here, but restrictions apply during the wet season once the water reaches a pre-set level. This is due to dangerous water currents and the risk of estuarine crocodiles entering the plunge pool with the increased water levels from the nearby wetlands. The Park rangers will open the pool to swimming once the water level is below the pre-set level, and a survey has been conducted to ensure no estuarine crocodiles have entered the pool during the closure. People spend from 2 hours to a whole day here, the plunge pool being a great place to relax and read a book or just enjoy the scenery.

The campground is within walking distance of the falls and a plunge pool. This is also one of the most popular camping grounds around for a reason. The falls flow all year round and they are stunning!The campsite is a short walk to the swimming hole too. In the event of an emergency, an emergency call device (ECD) can be found near the car park. Come and enjoy this thundering waterfall with connected walking trials, and epic views that are a photographer’s dream!
