Begin your small group Litchfield tour with pickup from your Darwin accommodation around 7.30 am. Journey south in Mercedes comfort along the Stuart Highway to the crystal clear waters of Berry Springs.
Berry Springs includes a diverse range of habitat and options. In addition, from the depths of the earth, clear geothermal waters rise to the surface and cascade over a small waterfall. This creates the perfect opportunity to sit and enjoy a relaxing water massage. The moment also lends itself to savouring homemade mango muffins and morning coffee. After the massage perhaps paddle or swim around and watch the abundant aquatic wildlife. Maybe you would rather just sit stay in the waterfall or go for a serene rainforest stroll along the creek.
Reluctantly leaving this piece of heaven we set our sights on the historic township of Batchelor, the gateway to Litchfield National Park. Along the way get to know the landscape and history of the Top End and Adelaide River Region before arriving at the historic township of Batchelor.
In Batchelor we take the time to visit the local museum. This community run feature showcases many personal stories of the people and events which shaped the NT. Such things as WWII, uranium mining for nuclear weapons, farming research, indigenous education and life and times of the pioneering people who live here and first nation people who call it home. The Batchelor Museum also offers an exclusive venue to enjoy our picnic lunch in comfort and ease.
After lunch it is time to explore Litchfield National Park. Known for its diversity and abundance of great waterfalls such as Florence Falls, Wangi Falls and Tolmer Falls. It also home to unique wetlands, stone country, ravines, gorges, cathedral termites, magnetic termites and much more. Within this Kaleidoscope of great aspects you can expect to see many fine examples on your Litchfield tour. Cascading waterfalls, crystal clear swimming spots, grand viewpoints, endemic plants and animals. All are on your list of things to experience. Enjoy the relaxed pace as your guide tailors the afternoons to suit you.
