Construction works to open up new campgrounds and swimming spots at Litchfield National Park as part of the Northern Territory Government’s $17.5 million Turbocharging Tourism investment are full steam ahead.

The Stage 3 tender has been awarded to local company, Ostojic Group with works including the construction of:

  • a 4WD access track,
  • two loop roads to the campsites, and
  • 10 campsites within the northern campgrounds with drop toilets and an information shelter.

The campsites will be spread out, offering visitors a more private outback experience than other campgrounds in the Park.  

Works on Stage 3 will begin in August 2020 and will be completed in early 2021 in time for the dry season.

Continuing to upgrade our parks and reserves and provide additional experiences allows the NT to be ahead of the game when it comes to preparing for the COVID-19 rebound when domestic and international tourism returns.

So far, the Litchfield National Park upgrades have seen 18km of access road works and design works for Stage 4 nearing completion. Stage 4 includes the construction of the remaining two campgrounds, two recreational areas, and the staging and lookout area at the top of the escarpment with the tender due for release in the coming months.

The site names for the new Central Valley sites have also been released and reflect the plant species and rock formations in the area:

  • Site 1 Cycad Springs Campground
  • Site 2 Kapok Pools
  • Site 3 Bloodwood Creek Campground
  • Site 4 Crystal Springs Campground
  • Site 5 Red Rock Gorge
  • Site 6 Central Valley Escarpment
