Recreation & Reserves

Litchfield Municipality is a region, which strongly contributes to the Greater Darwin area and yet maintains its own identity as a distinctive district with a renowned history. 

Just 30 minutes drive from Darwin’s Central Business District; the region covers 3,100sqkms taking in breath taking escarpments, historical journeys, adventure and fun.

Spend your days at one of Litchfield’s Municipalities 7 Reserves or take a drive around the World War II historical airstrips at Livingstone, Strauss and Hughes. Amongst the historical aspects of the region there are fun filled days and activities to be found. Humpty Doo is a must see, even if just the name is of interest ‘to say one has visited’ or the delights of Berry Springs if only for a day trip.

A car is essential to enjoy the activities which the region offers.  Bus services operate during school and business hours, with bus interchanges at Coolalinga, Humpty Doo and Howard Springs.

For the sporting enthusiast there are a range of activities on offer.  Freds Pass Sport and Recreation Reserve is home to over 20 clubs offering a wide variety of sporting activities.
