Select tour language
Spend a day in the outback on a small-group tour to Litchfield National Park from Darwin. From giant termite mounds to rugged sandstone escarpments, you’ll see iconic symbols of the Australian outback on this full-day tour. Cool off under a cascading waterfall or swim in a waterhole, and enjoy personal attention from your guide on this small-group tour.
  • See the waterfalls, swimming holes, and forest of Litchfield National Park
  • Maximize your time in the park with a guided tour and early departure
  • Learn how termites build towering mounds up to 20 feet (6 meters) tall
  • Includes barbecue lunch and round-trip transportation from Darwin hotels
What to Expect
Get an early start from Darwin with hotel pickup and an easy 90-minute drive in an air-conditioned minivan to Litchfield National Park. On the way, stop to see the Magnetic and Cathedral termite mounds, which stand an impressive 20 feet (6 meters) tall and can be viewed from boardwalks nearby. Continue into Litchfield National Park and visit many park highlights and scenic spots throughout the day. Stop at Florence Falls and Wangi Falls (seasonal) in the morning to swim in natural rock pools, then reenergize with a picnic barbecue lunch. In the afternoon, head to Buley Rockhole, where you can cool off and explore its series of waterfalls and swimming holes.  Your Litchfield tour ends with return to your hotel in Darwin in the early evening.

Dear David, thank you for sharing your review. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your tour although I apologise for your experience with lunch, consumption can vary depending on the appetites of those on board but we do usually carry extra food items to allow for this. I'm sorry that that was not the case on this occasion and I have shared your feedback with our team so as to avoid a repeat situation in future. Thank you again for sharing and I hope you have enjoyed the remainder of your time in the Top End.
