Darwin – Litchfield National Park

Join us on an exciting Litchfield National Park day tour from Darwin. Litchfield National Park is an Aboriginal Dreamtime region that retains its mysterious spirituality in the silence of still forest valleys and rock face escarpments. On a Litchfield National Park Tour, you’ll witness rugged sandstone cliffs, monsoon forests, spectacular waterfalls into cool abyss plunge pools, fascinating termite mounds, and warm tropical waters.

Leaving Darwin early in the day, we skirt Francis Bay on Darwin Harbour before heading south out of Darwin on the Stuart Highway. After a short break at the town of Batchelor, our first stop is at the Meridean Termite Mounds – an opportunity to learn about Cathedral and Magnetic Termite Mounds.

Litchfield National Park Tours include a trip to Florence Falls, where you can relax taking in stunning views of the falls or perhaps walk down to the plunge pool for a swim in this beautiful oasis. You can also enjoy a visit to Buley Rockhole, where cascades and many rockpools offer an opportunity for a refreshing swim (subject to seasonal weather conditions).

Next on your Litchfield tour is Tolmer Falls – a breathtaking valley with a waterfall and distant views toward the coast over cattle stations. Surrounded by monsoon forests and woodland areas, you’ll enjoy lunch at the Litchfield Cafe followed by a visit to Wangi Falls and its plunge pool where its stunning waterfalls and pool are bordered by river pandanas palms. Be sure to look out for the bats!
