What You Can Expect

Litchfield National Park Day Tour from Darwin

Termite Mounds, Litchfield National Park

After morning pickup from your Darwin hotel, travel by air-conditioned coach about 60 miles (100km) southwest to Litchfield National Park, taking in the scenery along the way. As you near the park, note the numerous waterfalls that cascade from a spectacular sandstone plateau called the Tabletop Range.

Your first stop is to see the magnetic and cathedral termite mounds that rise like pillars from the ground. Your guide will explain the different types of termites and point out which termite mounds are which.

Next stop is to Florence Falls where you come to a 135-step stairway that descends to the fantastic natural swimming hole surrounded by
monsoon forest. After spending some time swimming and taking in the beauty of Florence Falls. At midday, stop for a cold buffet lunch at the Litchfield Cafe and try some of their world-famous cheesecake.

After lunch return to your coach for a short drive to Wangi Falls. The falls flow year-round, pouring into a giant swimming hole flanked by rainforest. In the drier months, the pools are great for a swim. During the wet season, the currents can be too strong for safe swimming.

In the late afternoon continue to Tolmer Falls for great views of this stunning waterfall that cascades into a deep rock pool.

Next your tour will head out of Litchfiled National Park and back to Darwin. On the drive home your guide will talk about the traditional owners of this land, who are the Wagait Aboriginal people, many of whom live in the area.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

This was a great day's adventure and well worth the money. Phil, our driver/guide, was informative and entertaining without being intrusive, and he took us to some wonderful waterfalls and lookouts for just the right amount of time. The lunch was fairly standard but overall, we would recommend the tour as a terrific way to get to all the good places without having to find them yourself. Remember to bring your bathers, a towel and sunscreen!

Very comfortable coach and great guide once again. We had a great day at the park and feel that we saw more than we could have found ourselves, always great to sit back and just enjoy. Fun day.
