You are in for a good ol’ Aussie road trip along the country’s longest highway, all the way to Litchfield National Park. Known as ‘the Track’ or Stuart Highway officially, your driver/guide will entertain you with tales of this very important stretch of road on your Litchfield National Park tour.
An early start ensures you reach Litchfield National Park in good time. But before you enter the park, you have a layover at the town of Batchelor. Historically a sleepy village, it gained prominence as an allied air force base during World War Two. Then came the discovery of uranium in 1949 accompanied by a flurry of mining activity till 1963. Now the folks of Batchelor love to play hosts to visitors looking to visit the national park. Enjoy a cup of tea (at own expense) from one of the many local cafés.
Litchfield National Park is a stunning destination and rich in natural wealth with thundering waterfalls, rainforest pockets and sacred historic sites. The termite mounds are an iconic attraction, complete with detailed arches, tunnels and chimneys. You may also meet some of the Wagait people who are the traditional custodians of the park.
It’s time to visit the spectacular Litchfield National Park waterfalls, starting with the double waterfalls of Florence. You start from the top and make your way down a series of steps reaching a gorgeous plunge pool to cool down. There is also a guided walk through the scenic bush and a monsoon vine forest. Tolmer falls is next on the itinerary and is a spectacular sight to behold as water cascades down into the deep waterhole at the base of the falls. Several colonies of rare ghost bats and orange horseshoe bats call this hole their home.
You will be pretty bushed after all the walking around the park, but a delicious lunch spread that awaits you at Litchfield National Park will recharge you in no time! Waterfall time hasn’t ended, as post lunch, it’s time to head to the Wangi Falls. Relax and have a great time dipping your toes in the cool waters before boarding the coach for the journey back to Darwin.
