LITCHFIELD NATIONAL PARK
Tjaynera Creek (Sandy Creek)
3 day Tour
From Friday to Sunday or on request
The expedition starts 7:30am on the date nominated. We will travel 2 hours by 4WD to commence our exploration at Sandy creek during the dry season or Lost City during the wet season deep into the Litchfield National Park.
During the dry season, we can expect to encounter day trippers on the first day of the expedition but as we walk out of Sandy creek, we leave the crowds behind and enter a world only a few will see. For the next 3 days we will explore Tjaynera Creek .
We will be walking approximated 3 – 6 km per day. I plan to leave camp at 8:30 am each morning. Our day will start early to avoid walking in the heat of the day. We will return to camp around 3pm.
The weather in the area varies during the dry season. We can expect the day time temperatures to climb beyond 35°C whereas during the evening the temperature can hopefully be much cooler.
Evening 3 course meal
Experienced guide with extensive knowledge of the area
Breakfast, lunch and snacks
Magnetic termite mounds along the Reynolds River 4WD Track

To the south, the wild landscapes will slowly be discovered to the rhythm of our steps. It is a trip to the heart of the wild area of this national park that is proposed to you.

This 3 days / 2 nights tour begins and finish in Tjaynera Falls
On the first day, we will reach our starting point at Sandy Creek, bathe in the majestic Tjaynera Falls basin and then walk to our camp, located near a small cascade with natural charm. We will stay both nights in the same place.
On foot but also by swimming, we will explore the turquoise and transparent waters of hidden tributaries.
The second day in the morning, we will explore the surroundings of our camp in search of rock art sites. Litchfield sandstone is renowned for not retaining traces of Aboriginal paintings making art site pretty rare in this region. In the afternoon, I suggest that you store your daypacks in waterproof bags because we will return to our camp by swimming. The river with turquoise waters flows slowly through small gorges with a serene atmosphere, forming long pools that are very pleasant to discover by swimming. You don't have to be a good swimmer and you can stop for a rest where ever you want.
Backpack free, we will explore the bush
and enjoy the countless natural swimming pools.
I will provide a waterproof bag to protect your gear when swimming some of the long pools
or bathing in smaller pools
Video (on hold)
On the third day, we will reach the dizzying heights of Tjaynera Falls.
We will be able to swim in a shallow pool with a view of the Litchfield plains.
We will resume our walk to a fantastic lookout before returning to Sandy Creek to complete our bushwalk.
