Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Northern Territory / Litchfield National Park / Tjaetaba Falls
Stop at the top of Tjaetaba Falls for a picnic lunch or simply to admire the surrounding bushland, inhabited by wallaroos. To reach the lookout, cross the bridge over Greenant Creek, then walk up a gently sloping shady trail that follows the creek. Once at the top, take your time to enjoy the serene bushy surroundings and the views of the water tumbling over the edge of the escarpment. Note that this is a sacred Aboriginal site, so swimming is allowed only in the rock pools above the falls and not at the base. A visit to Tjaetaba Falls represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Litchfield National Park day trip planner to plot your vacation.

A must do great swimming holes
