But they also need the backing of clean and well-equipped facilities to make it truly family-friendly camping in Litchfield.

Read on to find out why every family member will already be looking forward to their next visit to Litchfield Safari Camp when it’s time to return home to reality.
A Safe Family Haven
From the moment you arrive at Litchfield Safari Camp, you know you’re in for a family treat. There’s a warm and welcoming atmosphere that’s far away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
There’s plenty for the kids to explore in a safe, well-laid-out environment while you set up camp and unpack. They’ll be able to check out the communal facilities and report back about all the exciting amenities.
The challenge for lots of parents is to keep smartphone devices away from their kids. Although hard and fast rules about phone or tablet use can work, they’re far easier to implement if there are more exciting options on offer.
Litchfield Safari Camp is somewhere that will bring out the kids’ inquisitive instincts. There are lots of wide open spaces to explore and where they can play games, kick the footy and ride their bikes.
It’s worth packing footballs, a cricket set and bikes. Bringing along games provides ideal opportunities for kids to make friends with other kids who are also staying at Litchfield Safari Camp.
Litchfield Camping Creates a Sense of Community
There are plenty of on-site facilities that help bring people together. If you’re visiting as a larger group, you have lots of opportunities to cook and eat together outdoors. There’s a communal barbecue zone, for example, as well as the camp kitchen and campfire areas to enjoy the stars under a wide open night sky. Don’t forget the marshmallows!
These are great places for celebrations or to catch up with friends and family over a long and relaxing evening. If you’re travelling with your family, these communal spaces are a great way to make friends with like-minded families.
Family-friendly camping in Litchfield is complete with clean showers that are available all day long. Clean showers are a necessity after a day out hiking through the beautiful natural surroundings. One of our other favourite ways to cool down after a long day of hiking is with ice cream. This is why we’ve ensured that there’s plenty of ice cream available at reception as well as a range of essentials.
Family-friendly camping in Litchfield is all about getting closer to nature. We campers know that camping offers us a unique opportunity to feel free and independent.
There’s a reason that the expression, “A change is as good as a rest” has an eternal appeal. Sleeping under the stars to the smells and sounds of the great outdoors is about as relaxing as it can get.
There are powered and unpowered sites available in wide open spaces. Regardless of your choice, you’ll have the support of the communal facilities. These are available to everyone at Litchfield Safari Camp.
If camping isn’t ideal for your family, we have a range of Litchfield accommodation options on offer which also includes our superbly equipped cabins. There are three types available:
- Studio-style cabins that can sleep up to 4 people
- 1-bedroom cabins that can sleep up to 5 people
- Our brand new modern 2-bedroom cabins that sleep up to 7 guests
There’s a mix of queen beds, bunk beds and sofa beds, depending on the cabin size. We provide top-quality linens and towels.
Each cabin has en-suite facilities. The kitchen areas come equipped with everything you could need, from fridges to microwaves and from toasters to kettles. We’ve even provided extra touches such as toiletries, tea and coffee bags, oil, salt and pepper to get you started. Additionally, each cabin has its private barbecue area.
Our cabin accommodation provides an outdoor experience but in a comfortable home-away-from-home environment.
Coming Soon: A Brand New Swimming Pool
Construction on our soon-to-be-opened pool is well underway. We’ve got an expected opening date in 2024, and we know it will be a big attraction for nature-loving families.
You’ll benefit from being able to chill out and cool down in our lush tropical environment. The pool is also going to be an ideal place for parents to relax with a long, cool drink while the kids make a splash close by.
The pool will be a great place to have even more fun after a day out exploring all of the stunning natural beauty that Litchfield National Park has to offer.
A Trip to Florence Falls
No visit to Litchfield National Park would be complete without exploring Florence Falls. Croc-free and safe for the kids, the family-friendly Falls are some of Australia’s best.
This star attraction is the ideal place to set off for a hike or to enjoy an afternoon of fun and frolics in the water. There are several holes for a swim here with these additional attractions:
- A large plunge pool
- Swimming at Florence Creek at the top of the Falls
- Nearby Buley Rockhole
There’s also an easy-to-reach viewpoint. To get to the bottom of Florence Falls, you can either descend the 160 steps or take the leisurely 1 km hike. Either way, the route is lush and green, surrounded by sub-tropical forest and cascading waters.
Under the waterfalls, you’ll be able to see plenty of fish, so bring goggles or a mask. There are public toilets available, barbecue facilities and plenty of parking spaces on hand.
