WHAT TO EXPECT
Explore the incredible natural beauty of Litchfield National Park, come face to face with a giant saltwater croc, swim in spectacular waterfalls and enjoy a breathtaking sunset on this amazing outback adventure.
We cram it all in on this one day Northern Territories extravaganza! Cruise through the most crocodile infested rivers in the world and get up close and personal with these deadly creatures. Marvel at the beauty of Litchfield National Park and cool off in the crystal clear waters at the foot of Florence Falls before enjoying bubbly and prawns as you take in a spectacular ocean sunset from the stunning East Point Reserve in Darwin.
Get off to a bright and early start with a pick up from your Darwin accommodation between 6:45am and 7:45am, and drive to Adelaide River where we board our own boat for a private jumping crocodile cruise with our friendly and experienced croc-handler, Pat. Our purpose-built boats mean that we can get up close and personal with the really big crocs, a must-do Territory experience!
Make sure your cameras are at the ready to capture a glimpse of the magnificent giant saltwater crocodiles as they leap out of the water, and keep an eye on the skies as big birds of prey like the stunning White Breasted Sea Eagle also swoop down to get in on the action.
When the adrenaline subsides, it’s time to get back on the road and head to the beautiful Litchfield National Park, a highlight of anyone’s trip to the Northern Territories. En route, we swing by Batchelor Township, an old mining town and the main entry point to the National Park. Let our friendly local guides share their expert knowledge on Darwin and Litchfield National Park’s history and culture, before we take a brief stop in Litchfield to marvel at some incredible magnetic and cathedral-esque termite mounds!
After lunch, we drive deep into the heart of the National Park, uncovering the secrets of the jungle and exploring the incredibly beautiful Wangi Falls, a series of tiered drops that fall from around 50 metres! On a hot day, there’s no better feeling than diving into the stunning plunge pool and enjoying the breathtaking views from the bottom of the falls.
Next up on our whistle-stop tour of this incredible National Park is the beautiful Buley Rockholes, a relaxing collection of crystal clear swimming holes and mini falls set against a backdrop of lush forest and colourful rocks. This is a great place to take some photos and relax before we head down the road to Florence Falls, a series of waterfalls that cut through the lush jungle and come to a stunning crescendo in a beautiful plunge pool. Litchfield National Park is also a haven for thousands of species of wildlife, so keep your eyes peeled, you never know what you might spot!
After a full afternoon exploring the beautiful Kakadu National Park, we’ll take the scenic route through the outback to Darwin and stop in at the must-see East Point Reserve to take in a spectacular sunset over the ocean. As the sun sinks nearer the horizon, marvel at the sheer natural beauty of this incredible part of the world and bond with your new friends over sparkling wine and traditional Aussie BBQ’d prawns, before we drop you back at your accommodation in Darwin around 7:30pm.
Breakfast is not included on this tour, so we recommend grabbing something to eat before you set off as it will be a long day and we don’t want you going hungry!
Please note that we are able to pick up from Palmerston and beyond on the way out of Darwin to the Adelaide River, but you will be dropped back at your accommodation on the way back into Darwin and may will miss out on the prawns and champagne sunset. Feel free to meet us in Darwin at any of the CBD pick up points in the morning, or come with us into town, then make your own way back to your out of town accommodation after the sunset finale. We would love to have you join us for the whole day!
