Florence Falls, Litchfield Park
From Spring Creek we walked along the creek track to the Florence Falls track as it was only about 500 metres and the car parking was at a premium. There are a lot of visitors even though the school holidays have now finished and there are always the tour coaches and four wheel drive buses.
The walk to Florence Falls is not too far, which was perfect as it was really hot, but there are lots of stairs. It is not too bad on the walk in as we were going downhill but going down 160 stairs meant that there were 160 stairs to climb back up afterwards.
The view of the falls from the viewing platform was pretty spectacular- well worth coming to see. Again this area is considered a spiritual place for the Aboriginal people so is very sacred.
