Hiking in Litchfield National Park can be everything you want and then some. From short walks of only a km or so through to multi-day adventures which test your spirit and endurance.
It is up to you.
Besides length there is tremendous variation in terrain and difficulty with walks in Litchfield Park. Fortunate diversity comes from the scenic and rugged sandstone Tolmer Range which runs in a general North -South direction for most of the length of the park.
This sandstone bedrock is up to 1.8 BILLION years old and clearly shows its age in the form of gullies, gorges and ravines … not to mention the western escarpment cliffs and gorges.
With all this going on there is accompanying floral and faunal diversity finding refuge here as well. The tropical monsoonal forests tucked into the gorges, the open shrub community across the exposed sandstone outcrops, the grasslands and paperbark wetlands … all home to unique and in some cases endangered Australian species.
Now let’s talk climate ! The tropical north is dominated by monsoonal rainfall for 1/3 of the year. no rainfall for a 1/3 and who knows whats happening for the other third !
Adding all that up and the question is … what does that mean for hiking in Litchfield … and what does it mean for you ?
