1 OR 2 DAY LITCHFIELD PARK TOUR
Litchfield National Park
Litchfield National Park is a must-see if you're in the Top End. Its area is approximately 1500 km2, located 100 km south-west of Darwin (about a 1 and a half hours drive). The park attracts over 260,000 visitors per year.
Litchfield Park is home to many of the Northern Territory’s greatest natural wonders, including:
clear, natural, spring-fed waterfalls;
tropical monsoon vine forests
Indigenous culture, bush food & medicine, and much of the top end’s abundant and diverse wildlife.
Enjoy peace and tranquility while relaxing under the waterfalls and basking in nature’s oasis while swimming in clear, freshwater pools.
Pick up from your accommodation at 7:00 AM, then let us launch you early to stop in and experience Batchelor Butterfly Farm and the wonderful Animal Petting zoo. From here, wind your way into a scenic 15minute drive into Litchfield park for your ultimate Litchfield adventure! Swim and cool off in the blissful spring-fed waterfalls, take a guided walk in the tropical monsoon vine forests and experience nature in its finest form. Experience a lesson in ancient Indigenous bush food and medicine, passed down from ancestors for thousands of years. Be amazed by the incredible architectural works of termites at the Termite Mounds. Admire sandstone formations of the natural landscape and its abundant unique wildlife and birds, all protected in their own natural habitat. All while being led by an experienced and qualified local guide.
