What You Can Expect

Litchfield National Park Day Tour from Darwin

Termite Mound

Take a break from the urban bustle on a full-day escape to Litchfield National Park. After morning pickup at your Darwin hotel or a central meeting point, soak up the scenery and listen to your guide’s narration on the approximately 2-hour drive to the park. As you approach, you’ll be greeted by inspiring views of Tabletop Range, a sandstone plateau adorned with a curtain of cascading waterfalls. 
Inside the park, marvel at giant cathedral termite mounds and learn how these astonishing structures are built by armies of tiny insects. Continue on to Florence Falls, where a 135-step stairway leads to an enchanting natural swimming hole. Take a refreshing dip if you like, and enjoy the surrounding monsoon forest.
Rest and recharge with a cold buffet lunch at the Litchfield Café, where you can indulge in a slice of famous cheesecake. After lunch, travel to nearby Wangi Falls, where year-round currents pour into a large swimming hole. Go in for another swim (during drier months), or simply admire the lush rain forest scenery if water levels are too high. Finally, visit one last glorious cascade, Tolmer Falls, which empties into a deep rock pool. 
On the return drive to Darwin, relax in the late afternoon light and listen to local Aboriginal legends about the park’s ancient attractions. Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your Darwin hotel in the evening.

Great driver/guide who kept us informed and entertained throughout the day. The waterfalls were wonderful, lunch was good and there were sufficient but not excessive comfort stops. We were picked up on time and returned home as expected. Recommended tour

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, unfortunately my husband suffered from the heat
and was quite ill. We had two amazing staff on the tour by the names of Marietta
and Leonard who looked after my husband and ensured no lasting ill effects.
We went into the office in Darwin and also recommended them to the staff.

Loved this trip! A full day without being too long. Our tour guide was amazing and kept us laughing all day. i was surprised to find out she was originally a Sydney gal - she was so relaxed, at ease and knowledgable I thought she was Darwin born and bred! The tour had regular breaks and also enough down time to enjoy the stops. Loved the opportunities to swim which were amazing in rock pools and waterfalls. Great tour and great day spent. Don't miss this one!
