The Lost City

Take the 4WD and see the sandstones structures that resemble a lost city

The Lost City is a series of impressive towering sandstones in Litchfield National Park.

The vast array of these rock formations gives the impression of ancient city ruins.

Access to The Lost City is via a 4WD access road from Litchfield Park Road between Buley Rockhole and Tolmer Falls.

The 10km dirt track can be of varying difficulties depending on the time of year.

The attraction closes during the wet season when the track becomes completely impassable.

Camping is not allowed and there are no facilities.
