Litchfield Day Tour Itinerary
Discover the beauty and abundance of wildlife in Northern Australia with our Litchfield Day Tours. Throughout the day you’ll get to explore a whole host of different landscapes, from dense bush, to low valleys, and incredible swimming spots, all whilst learning about the history and culture of Litchfield National Park.
We start the day by heading to the Adelaide River, where you’ll get to glide across the water on our Litchfield Tours boat and catch a glimpse of the local crocs in their natural habitat. After making the most of this once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity we’ll dive straight into the beautiful scenery of the national park.
Our itinerary is jam-packed full of outdoor adventures and there’s plenty of wildlife encounters to be had. Get up close and personal with Salt Water Crocodiles on our, Jumping Crocodile Cruise. From there we’ll tone things down a bit by exploring the breath-taking beauty of Florence Falls. To get there, we’ll take a short bush walk set against the soundtrack of chirping, colourful birds.
We’ll take a break at Buley Rockholes, the perfect place to catch your breath and chill out with new-found friends. There’s time to kick back in the water that flows through the rock holes and downstream, cooling off in the refreshing pools.
From there we’ll take a picturesque stroll through the jaw-dropping landscapes of Litchfield, past soaring cliff-faces, alongside green-carpeted valleys, and to the incredible lookout point over Tolmer Falls. The nearby Caves are home to a protected family of bats, and you’ll get to learn about these quirky, nocturnal critters.
Moving on, we’ll head to one of Litchfield’s most popular landmarks, Wangi Falls. Enveloped by the lush green canopy of tall trees, you can splash around at the base of the waterfall and soak up the natural scenery. Once well and truly refreshed, we’ll refuel with a fresh picnic, keeping close to nature with cold meats and salad.
To finish the day, we’ll explore the Cathedral Termite Mounds. These incredible feats of nature are unique to Northern Australia, and the termites that reside in them are some of the longest living insects on the entire planet. Seeing the 100-year-old structures with your own eyes is a mesmerising experience, and our local guide will impart knowledge and histories of these weird and wonderful creatures.
After a jam-packed day filled with lush landscapes and a whole host of Australian Wildlife, we’ll head back to Darwin before the sun sets.
