Hidden swimming spots and dozens of new camping sites will open this dry season in Litchfield National Park, one of the Northern Territory’s top tourist destinations.
The NT government expects the new sites in the park’s Central Valley will attract more than 20,000 visitors in 2021.
The area has never before been open to the public.
Thirty-two campsites across three camping grounds, each with swimming areas, will open over the dry season months, starting in May.
The new sites include a lookout over an escarpment and bike and walking tracks connecting the Lost City, Central Valley and Litchfield Park Road areas.
