What to Expect
Spend the day in the magnificent landscapes of Litchfield National Park on a full-day sightseeing tour from Darwin. Following a pick-up from your accommodation at approximately 07:00, travel towards Litchfield National Park, named after the Northern Territory pioneer Frederick Henry Litchfield.
Admire the natural phenomena of the Magnetic and Cathedral Termite Mounds. Built by termites, the amazing mounds are formed of arches, tunnels, and chimneys, and can stand as high as 6 meters tall. Enjoy close-up views of the insect habitats and amazing feat of nature.
Once inside the park, go to some of the waterfalls and spring-fed streams. Journey through rugged sandstone escarpments. Swim and hike around the double-plunge waterfall of Florence Fall. If weather permits, go to Wangi Falls, a segmented waterfall on Wangi Creek. Note that Wangi Falls can close during the tropical wet season and will be substituted during this time.
Enjoy a tasty barbecue lunch inside the park and discover the many rock holes and cascades of Buley Rockhole. Then transfer back to Darwin for an early evening drop off at your accommodation.
