What You Can Expect

Small-Group Litchfield National Park Day Trip from Darwin

Florence Falls, Litchfield National Park

After an early start from Darwin, relax on the 90-minute journey to the stunning rock formations and waterfalls of Litchfield National Park. Following the Stuart Highway, you’ll pass a low-lying landscape of palms and red desert bushland.

Just before entering Litchfield National Park, take a guided tour to see the massive Magnetic and Cathedral termite mounds soaring 20 feet (6 meters) into the air. These amazing insect habitats are made up of intricate arches, tunnels and chimneys, which can be easily viewed from a series of nearby boardwalks.

Continuing into Litchfield National Park, you’ll explore the park’s streams and sandstone escarpments, and enjoy a swim in Florence and Wangi waterfalls (seasonal) and enjoy a barbecue lunch. Then watch waterfalls cascade into Buley Rockhole, a series of falls and holes offering ideal spots to swim and relax, before returning to Darwin in the early evening.

I enjoyed this tour, the guide was very helpful and we saw both secluded and beautiful areas as well as the larger more populated parts of Litchfield. Had a great time.

Great trip. The scenery sells itself. Good amount of time spent at the waterfalls and Buley waterhole, which was amazing. Stopped for ice creams on way back sat outside cafe and cuddled pet snake! Nice BBQ lunch. Day started slow, when after driving for three quarters hour pulled over into the shrub and told we were going to be shown aspects of aboriginal life- playing didgeridoo and basket weaving! Felt we just wanted to get on to Litchfield at the time, but looking back it was very interesting and made part of the whole days experience. Mini bus was comfortable and air conditioned.

It was a relaxing, easy going day in a very small bus. The magnetic termite mounds were really interesting. The walk between the falls was great. Thanks to our coach tour driver for the day (I'm sorry I can't remember his name). The weather was fantastic.

This was a nice day trip. The smaller size allowed the guide, Solar, to keep things moving since we didn't have to wait for stragglers. It's a fairly long bus ride and not a lot to see along the way, but Solar gave us a little information along the way. As we got to the various destinations he had a lot more information to share. We had ample time to explore and/or swim at each of the stops. This was our first encounter with the flies. You'll definitely want to bring bug spray and a fly net if you have one. The lunch provided was adequate but nothing spectacular.
