Litchfield National Park
Litchfield National Park Accommodation.
Located just 129 kilometres from Darwin and 268 kilometres from Katherine, this absolutely fascinating 143 sq km area of land was originally the home of the Aboriginal Wagait people. It was proclaimed a National Park in 1986.
Its history has been chequered. For some 75 years until mid 20th century the area was the centre of tin and copper mining activity. Then it fell under a pastoral lease until it became a designated National Park.
Hotel accommodation and camping facilities are readily available at Batchelor which is just 13 kilometres from the Park entrance, and nearby at Lake Bennett or Adelaide River.
