Located just over 100 kilometers south of Darwin and an easy days drive there and back with good blacktop roads all the way..a visit to this wonderful National Park is a great day out..over1500 square kilometers in area the parks main attractions are the many beautiful waterfalls, Make sure that you have time to visit the wonderful "Florence falls" This being one of many waterfalls in the park.The falls are quite a hike from the carpark area but information maps show you the way..This is a wonderful swimming area at the base of the falls and really quite beautiful in its location.I found it to be so cooling after the heat of the walk. There are also many wonderful swimming holes(most free of crocodiles)to be found in the park , The huge ant hills are a sight to behold some standing over four meters high there is just so much great all round scenery to be enjoyed...alive with birdlife and native animals make sure that your camera batteries are charged as this is a photographers dream. Also make sure that you bring your swimming togs and a towel as there are just so many great swimming spots..There are great campgrounds here and hiking tracks
Make sure that you have PLENTY of water with you at all times...
ALWAYS: take notice of signs near swimming areas as crocodiles get into some areas in the wet season
Be aware of your surrounding so as not to hurt yourself as some parts of this park are very isolated.
Carry your mobile phone and be aware of emergency numbers
Always use public toilets when in service areas. Better than being bitten on the bum by a snake!!!
