Although it's not as famous as the nearby Kakadu, many travellers prefer Litchfield Park. Its waterfalls and trails make it an ideal spot to visit - a set of lush forests crossed by streams that flow into beautiful waterfalls. It is very nice, perfect for hiking and the chance to run into the odd wallaby or rainbow bird. Upon entering we were struck by the huge termite mounds, some up to two metres high. They all face the same direction, to minimise the impact of the sun. One of the most famous and popular sights in the park is the Wangi Falls, a waterfall flowing into a large lake where you can swim.
