4WD tracks & unsealed roads in Litchfield National Park, Northern Territory, Australia
Tjaynera Falls (Sandy Creek)courtesy of Tourism Northern Territory
Tjaynera Falls (Sandy Creek) - 4WD only check road conditions.
Nestled in an open valley, luxuriant with paperbarks, relax and enjoy the usually un-crowded plunge pool. Camping is available with toilet and shower facilities. During the wet season the road will be subject to closure.
Reynolds River 4WD Track to Tjaynera Falls at Sandy Creek
Litchfield Rd to Daly River Rd (4WD) : The 4WD track travelling North-South through the park has a number of creek crossings . This track is closed during the wet. If you are planning to travel this road through it is recommended that you check if a snorkel is required for the Reynolds River. The road accesses some idyllic camp grounds and attractive uncrowded waterfalls such as Tjaynera & Surprise Creek Falls. This road also has an amazing magnetic termite field that lasts for many kilometers and offers an eerie cemetery type landscape. Travel time is 3.5 hours one way not including stops.
4WD Track - from Litchfield Park Road to Daly River Road
From Sandy Creek (campsite app 2klm away), the 4WD track continues with a few rather steepish creek crossings (water crossings make sure you have a 4WD and snorkel) to the Reynolds River and then back to the crocodile country and now your around halfway between Daly River and the Stuart Highway.
Greenant Creek 4WD accessible areas via Greenant Creek Walk through rainforest to another attractive plunge pool. Typically un-crowded (start at the bridge across Greenant Creek), approx 2.7kms return, 1.5hrs duration, level (moderate, however steep in sections) To the Tjaetaba Falls adjoining Greenant Creek in Litchfield National Park.

The approach road is only a unsealed single lane track and that leads past numerous termite hills and low lying bushlands with an occassional inquisitive frilled Necked Lizard looking on.. The track into this section is very rocky and uneven and considered by us as very rough so allow plenty of time to get there and look out for oncoming driver's. The Lost City can be access by horseback, trail bike, mountain bike or to the hardy bushwalker.

Only people experienced in handling 4WD vehicles in uneven terrain should consider attempting the track to the Lost City, and their vehicle will need plenty of ground clearance due to high rock ledges and sandbank drifts. The track starts wide as in the photo's we took but narrows and one-way for the most part then on. You'll need to watch for oncoming vehicles and be prepared to pull off the track to let them pass.

After visiting the Lost City try some bush walking, swimming and relaxing around the surrounding plunge pools below the magnificent Florence, tolmer and Wangi Falls of Litchfield Park. Beyond the lost City are sandstone blackened weathered escarpments and black soil plains, occupied by numerous incredible magnetic termite mounds, Then in patches with contrast of pockets of monsoonal rainforests. Other remote locations accessible on four wheel drive tracks are Tjaynera Falls (Sandy Creek), the road to Blyth Homestead accessible on four-wheel drive tracks.

Blyth Homestead - 4WD accessible.
Built by the Sargent family in 1929 abandoned in the early 1960s, the Blyth Homestead, which was also the location of an old tin mine now a ruin, stands as a reminder of the tough conditions faced by the pioneers in remote areas. This home was eventually sold by the second owners to the Territory Government to become part of Litchfield National Park in 1985. Standing before the home, you can appreciate the tough conditions faced by the pioneers in remote areas. It has recently been restored, and an interpretive display presents the trials and tragedies of this remote site. Only carpark facilities.
