It was off the beaten track. It took a creek crossing, a 4WD trek and a bushwalk to get in. Best of all, we had it to ourselves.
Litchfield gets busy at times as it close for daytrippers from Darwin however a tip from our campsite sent us on a trek to Sandy Creek Falls. Since we had not yet done any 4wd outings, we thought we would give it a go. We set off in convoy with the Bohemians and tackled the “off the beaten track” adventure, giving Tug his first swim.
It always amazes us that there are so many great falls and waterholes hiding out there. We ventured for 20kms down the track, stopping for a few sites before we embarked on the bushwalk into the falls.
The walk to get to a waterhole or falls always seems to increase the desire for a cool relaxing swim, all the more pleasant when you are the only ones there.
The waterhole was incredibly clear and with a decent volume of water still coming over the falls, the mandatory shower under the falls was enjoyed.
Another cracking spot in Litchfield NP.
