Litchfield Tours – Litchfield National Park Facts

Litchfield National Park is around 1.5 hours drive south of Darwin.  In the Northern Territory, this is considered a short drive!

The main attractions are the waterfalls, the water holes, the termite mounds and the lost city – a bizarre sandstone block and pillar formation.

Litchfield Day Tours from Darwin showcase the amazing sights of Buley Waterhole, Florence Falls, Tolmer Falls, Wangi Falls and more.  These are all easily accessible from the main road and are normally coupled with the termite mounds, bush walks and swimming in waterholes.  A truly great day tour in Australia.

The Litchfield National Park is around 1500 square kilometre and the original owners are the Wagait Aboriginal People.  There is a colourful history of European settlement with many ruins (Blyth homestead being the main one), which are long since abandoned.

People frequently visit Litchfield for sightseeing, swimming and bushwalking.  There are amazing wildlife cruises on the Reynolds River and the average temperatures range from a minimum of 21-25 degrees Celsius over night to maximum of 31-32 degrees Celsius during the day.

There are 3 roads leading into Litchfield National Park, the only bitumen road is via the town of Batchelor off the Stuart Highway between Darwin and Katherine.

Litchfield National Park is a must do if you are visiting the top end of Australia, and it is available on our 1 day Litchfield National Park Tour OR on most of our 3 day Kakadu and Litchfield Tours.

We hope you will enjoy the Litchfield National Park.
