A picturesque swimming spot in the Northern Territory is closed until further notice after a freshwater crocodile was spotted in the area.

The two-metre beast was seen in the Florence Falls waterhole of Litchfield National Park on Sunday and NT Parks and Wildlife raised the alarm on Monday. Ironically, it was also World Croc Day.

The freshie was identified and confirmed by spotlight overnight, sparking a rush from park rangers to try remove it.

NT Parks and Wildlife have placed warning signs in the area and the pools will reopen 'as soon as it's practical'.

Aussies are encouraged to be 'croc wise' before entering any swimming area in the Top End.

Saltwater crocodiles tend to be more aggressive and larger than freshwater crocodiles, but nonetheless swimming is not allowed after any crocodile sighting.

Florence Falls is popular among visitors for its gorgeous natural beauty and waterhole that's surrounding by bushland.

The falls flow all year round, but are the most spectacular during the wet season and start of the dry season.
