Pass through pockets of cool monsoon rainforest and spot a variety of birds and wildlife on the six-kilometre round trip in Litchfield National Park.
Florence Creek Walk is a 3.2 kilometre walk between Florence Falls and Buley Rockhole in Litchfield National Park. You can start the walk at either end and follow the trail through cool monsoon rainforest. As you go, look out for birdlife, including kingfishers, honey-eaters, fairy-wrens and pigeons. Other wildlife to spot includes brown bandicoots and northern quolls. Or you might be lucky enough to see black flying foxes (bats) roosting in the trees.
The easy Florence Creek Walk should take you only 90 minutes to complete. At either end you can swim safely in the plunge pool at Florence Falls or the series of waterfalls and rock holes at Buley Rockhole.
The Florence Creek Walk is part of the longer 39 kilometre Tabletop Track, a three-five day circuit walk that starts at Wangi Falls and follows the course of Walker Creek through open woodland and masses of cycads to Florence Falls. From there it returns to Wangi Falls via stringy barks, paperbarks and pandanus.
