About Buley Rockhole
Buley Rockhole consisted of a series of cascades and popular swimming holes on Florence Creek that offered deep pools that allowed for a cliff jump.
This spot also featured a pretty easy loop track taking in the cascades and swimming holes along with a picnic area and even changing rooms (so you know it’s a place to cool off).
Therefore, it really seemed like over the years that this spot had blown up in popularity, especially on the socials.
Heck, from what we saw on our mid-June 2022 morning visit, it got busy real quick, and it reinforced in my mind that cooling off from the heat and humidity of the Top End was the thing to do, and the Buley Rockhole was the embodiment of this activity.
Given its increase in popularity in recent years, I’d imagine that this will now forever be one of the busiest swimming holes in Litchfield National Park let alone the Northern Territory as a whole.
Nevertheless, this place felt like an easier-to-access alternative to Florence Falls (though both spots were very popular and the access to Florence Falls wasn’t difficult anyways).
In fact, the Buley Rockhole even had its own car park so you really don’t have to work for it if you’re not inclined to do so.
That said, if you really fancy a quieter and more intimate experience, then you also have the option of doing the 4.9km Florence Creek Track connecting it with the Florence Falls.
Anyways, this was a pretty short excursion, and you can stay and play for as long as you want (though it can get crowded) or as short as you want.
For the record, we did the short 700m or so loop in about 45 minutes, but this included all the picture taking and chilling out though we didn’t swim (so I’d imagine a visit could easily take longer than what we did).
The Buley Rockhole resides in Litchfield National Park near Batchelor in the Northern Territory. It is administered by the Northern Territory Government. For information or inquiries about the area as well as current conditions, visit their website.
The Buley Rockhole is located in the heart of Litchfield National Park roughly a little over 30 minutes drive west of Batchelor.
From Batchelor, we drove the main road (Litchfield Park Road) about 35km to the well-signed turnoff for both the Buley Rockhole and Florence Falls.
From there, we then drove about 2km to the signed turnoff for the Buley Rockhole on the left, and then we drove the remaining 1km or so to the car park.
Note that if we didn’t turn left to go to the Buley Rockhole, we would have ended up at Florence Falls in another 2.5km (towards the end of the access road).
