Walker Creek Walk
Litchfield National Park
Directions - The first or last day hike in Litchfield, depending on which way you enter the park, Walker Creek is located 65km from the Cox Peninsula Road turnoff if approaching from the north. If coming via Batchelor then it is 75km along Litchfield Park Road once you turn off Rum Jungle Road.
The Hike - In what has become an annual tradition since our first trip to Darwin in 2019, Caris' side of the family like to take her grandmother on a winter trip to escape the cold Perth winter (and to also celebrate her birthday). For 2022, it was decided that Katherine would be the preferred destination and this presented an opportunity to explore nearby Nitmiluk National Park. With a half day of driving to get from Darwin to Katherine, Caris and I decided to make a side trip into Litchfield National Park to visit the remaining day walks that are accessible to 2WD cars.
