Please arrive 1 hour before your selected start time for pickup. Your operator can coordinate exact time and location.

Hotel pick-ups commence prior to the tour start time. Please refer to your voucher for your hotel pick-up time or call the operator. You will be collected from the hotel you have selected in the drop down list. If you wish to change your pick-up location, you must call the operator at least 24 hrs prior to travel. If your hotel does not appear on the dropdown list, the operator does not pick-up from your hotel. Please phone the operator to arrange an alternate pick-up time and location.
Take a break from the urban bustle on a full-day escape to Litchfield National Park. After morning pickup at your Darwin hotel or a central meeting point, soak up the scenery and listen to your guide’s narration on the drive to the park. As you approach, you are greeted by inspiring views of Tabletop Range, a sandstone plateau adorned with a curtain of cascading waterfalls. 

Inside the park, marvel at giant cathedral termite mounds and learn how these astonishing structures are built by armies of tiny insects. Continue on to Florence Falls, where a 135-step stairway leads to an enchanting natural swimming hole. Take a refreshing dip if you like, and enjoy the surrounding monsoon forest.

Rest and recharge with a cold buffet lunch at the Litchfield Café, where you can indulge in a slice of famous cheesecake. After lunch, travel to nearby Wangi Falls, where year-round currents pour into a large swimming hole. Go in for another swim (during drier months), or simply admire the lush rain forest scenery if water levels are too high. Finally, visit one last glorious cascade, Tolmer Falls, which empties into a deep rock pool. 

On the return drive to Darwin, relax in the late afternoon light and listen to local Aboriginal legends about the park’s ancient attractions. Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your Darwin hotel in the evening.

Tremendous tour with a passionate tour leader that enjoys his job. Especially the advice on a swimming hole no-one knew about. Considering the amount of vehicles and people at the tourist sites this was an excellent way to see Litchfield National Park.

Litchfield tour was very interesting. Enjoyed the falls, so disappointing that Wangi was not swimmable but unavoidable. Howard Springs Nature Park stop off proved to be delightful. Guide very knowledgeable. Thank you for a good day.

A great day out.
Turid_Ray
, Jul 2021
A wonderful day spent in an amazing terrain of waterfalls, crystal clear pools, and lush monsoon forestry. The tour is a great way to see a lot in a day without the hassle of driving yourself and figuring out what is best to see in a short time. The tour was well organised, with just the right amount of time at each stop, and our driver cum guide, nicknamed “Love”, was knowledgeable about our surrounds, tentative to our needs and mindful of our safety. Florence Falls for a cooling swim in the water hole was a highlight, and well worth the steps down to the pool and the gentle stroll back to the carpark through tropical forest. It is a shame that Wangi Falls was still closed for swimming after the wet season, and so early in the dry season, but spectacular to see nonetheless. As for the magnetic Cathedral termite mounds – they were huge. The stop off at Howard Springs Nature Park just outside Darwin was an interesting diversion into an area of preserved natural bushland where you can see local wildlife close-up and in gentle surrounds. All in all, a great day out.

The holiday that wasn't
Minas_K
, Jun 2021
Unfortunately, we were sent in lock-down the day after we arrived. All tours were cancelled and we just spent four days confined to our hotel room. Now flying back home earlier (a very expensive and stressful exercise.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Dear Minas_K, Thanks for your review and regrettably, Darwin and surrounds were put into an immediate lockdown with very minimal warning. When these things happen we have to follow government directions and for the safety of our guests, our crew and the public our trips were cancelled as were all travel operators. If you would like to discuss further then please contact guestrelations@ttc.com with your name, your booking details and your intended date of travel. Thanks so much, AAT Kings Guest Relations
