What you can expect
Take a day to explore the rugged wilderness of Litchfield National Park. Follow an expert guide through the sprawling area, discovering natural gems like termite mounds, sparkling waterfalls, and plunge pools while learning about the Aboriginal Australian significance of the region.
Depart from Darwin in the morning, catching sight of beautiful Francis Bay on your way out of the city. After a brief stop in the nearby town of Batchelor, enter Litchfield National Park itself and begin your walk through its incredible nature. Your guide leads you to termite mounds that jut out from the ground, and explains the difference between the north-to-south-aligned magnetic mounds and the enormous cathedral mounds.
Next, visit Florence Falls, where you have the opportunity to go for a swim in its deep plunge pool. You can also take a dip in the beautiful Buley Rockhole, which is fed by many short falls and features a distinctive colour. Later, take a walk through the lush monsoon forests of Litchfield National Park and make your way to Wangi Falls, a stunning set of waterfalls bordered by pandanas palms.
Throughout your tour, your guide puts the park into historical context, explaining its significance as a sacred site to Aboriginal Australians. Absorb this information as you take in the untouched nature around you, and return to Darwin at the end of the day feeling enlightened.
