Tabletop Track

Litchfield National Park

A 40-50km circuit in Litchfield National Park in the Northern Territory: the length depends on which access track is used to access the circuit. The walk goes through an arid and often burnt landscape, but is punctuated by beautiful waterholes and creeks. There's a pretty good chance you'll have one of the three camping sites to yourself.

Maps

Australia’s Northern Territory Litchfield National Park – Edition 7 (topographical map). Can be hard to find.

Route/Trail notes

A circular walk around the Tabletop plateau, accessed via three "link tracks" (Wangi Creek, Greenant Creek, Florence Falls). Can be walked in either direction and there are three official camp sites. Can be done in two days - 3-4 is the recommended duration, which also means you can walk in the morning and rest in the afternoon when it's warmed. Navigating is hard as there are few obvious features to follow, but the entire track is marked by blue markers at regular intervals.

Permits/Costs

No permit in the Dry season (May-September). A permit is required in the Wet season and if the track is closed (eg. due to bushfires).
