Cars are welcomed in Litchfield National Park, and there's no parking fee. There is generally ample parking, however, in the dry season, it can get busy. So arrive early if you want one of these parking spots. Once you’re at the Park, we recommend that you leave the driving to us, with our efficient shuttle bus system that’ll get you everywhere you need to go.
