What To Expect

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 drive to the park. As you approach, you are 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.

Swimming under the waterfall was a lovely experience but the organisation of the tour was a shambles.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi Sara, Thank you very much for your feedback. Jess from AAT Kings
Over priced, underwhelmed
Rob_G, May 2022
Very little. An overpriced experience I would rather forget. Tour guide lacked accurate knowledge and failed to point out many obvious points of interest.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi Rob, Thank you very much for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear you had a disappointing experience. I'll pass it on to relevant teams. Jess from AAT Kings
Don’t trust Viator with your travel arrangements!
Joanna_W, Apr 2022
Viator gave us incorrect pickup times for the hotels so the trip went without us. There were no contact details to message either the tour operators or Viator. Never trust Viator to book your travel arrangements. Do it yourself.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi Joanna, Thank you very much for your feedback. I'll double check that contact details and pick up times are noted for our guests. Jess from AAT Kings
A long day worth having
William_C, Apr 2022
Comfortable coach Very experienced knowledgeable and friendly driver Plenty of very cold water offered Lunch was just ok. The staff in the cafe were unfriendly and virtually pushed us out before we had finished Disappointed that we were unable to have a swim as the stairs to the one pool offered were not able to be managed by either of us The Termite nests were fascinating as was the Barramundi Farm

alan_g, Apr 2022
Enjoyed every part of this tour, the tour guide is quite informative, enthusiastic and very kind. The only part I didn't enjoy was during the booking period where the lady at the admin was very rude when I was confirming my booking details. She said there is now only 1 pick up location being the Mantra hotel in the city (though it didn't state this online), yet people were getting picked up from other locations. So she not only clearly lied to me over the phone but also had a bad attitude about it all. I would have rated this experience all stars if it wasn't for her rudeness.
Good day out in Litchfield
Michel_H, Apr 2022
Good one day trip from Darwin. Stopped at a number of rather excellent waterfalls. Didn’t feel too rushed. Arrangements such as pickups and drop-offs and lunch were very well organised. Tour guide Shane gave enough but not continuous commentary. Online bookings was easy and worked.
The swimming holes and...
Luba_P, Apr 2022
The swimming holes and waterfalls were spectacular- would have liked to stay at one spot for longer rather than stop at 2
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Hi Luba, many thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your visits to the amazing waterfalls of Litchfield National Park. There are quite a few stops we make to ensure that guests with limited time in the Top End are able to make the most of visiting this incredible destination, we will be sure to pass on your feedback to our operations team. Kind Regards, Jacob from AAT Kings
Jacqueline_B, Feb 2022
Amazing day and our driver was amazing. Sites were incredible. Day was very well organised. Will definitely come back and do it again in the dry season so I can have the full experience and swim.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Hi Jacqueline, many thanks for your kind words & we are so glad that you enjoyed your time out in Litchfield National Park. I must agree, visiting in the dry season is the perfect way to experience the Top End waterfalls, we hope to welcome you on board very soon. Kind Regards, Jacob from AAT Kings
