New Campsites Open in Litchfield

NT Government

The Central Valley campgrounds 2 and 3 are now complete and will be open for visitors from this Saturday.

These campgrounds mark the completion of the $17.5 million Turbo Charging Tourism project.

More than 300,000 people visit Litchfield National Park every year and the addition of Central Valley has created 32 new campsites across 3 campgrounds in Litchfield.

Territorians have also embraced Central Valley, with 99 per cent of camp bookings for Campground 1 coming from local residents.

The campgrounds have drop toilets, information shelter, and are accessible by four-wheel-drive vehicles only.

Each of the campgrounds has something slightly different for visitors, with Campground 1 offering direct access to a spring-fed creek, and campgrounds 2 and 3 offering more family-friendly bush camping with a short walk to the water.

The project supported 96 jobs during construction.
