Tackle the 39-kilometre track along trickling creeks, cascading waterfalls, crystal clear pools, and secluded pockets of tropical monsoon rainforest.
The Tabletop Track is a picturesque long-distance walking track through Litchfield National Park, which is a little over an hour's drive from Darwin. Walk through Litchfield's lush woodlands, along beautiful creeks and to scenic waterfalls and pools.
The Tabletop Track is approached via one of several short link walks. Access these at Florence Falls, Greenant Creek, Wangi Falls and Walker Creek. This 39 kilometre (or 50.5 kilometre including link walks into campsites) circuit includes three main sections, Wangi to Walker Creek (18.5 kilometres) offers great views as you follow the palm-lined creek to Tjenya Falls, then continue through open woodland to a well-earned swim in Walker Creek. Take in the changing landscape as you continue the walk to Florence Falls (12.3 kilometres), through unusual sandstone formations and lush rainforest. Admire the large castle-shaped boulders on the last shady part of the track (19.7 kilometres) to Wangi Falls as you follow the paperbark and pandanus-lined Wangi Creek.
Walkers should note that the Tabletop Track is suitable for experienced, fit and well-prepared bushwalkers. If you're planning to walk the whole circuit, allow three to five days. You must camp in designated campgrounds, and the track usually closes at the end of September.
