Get a full day tour of Litchfield National Park and experience a remote Aboriginal dreamtime region, whose rugged landscapes, monsoon forests, waterfalls and warm tropical waters make for an incredibly Australian journey. Visit such natural locations as Tolmer Falls, the Meridean Temple Mounds, and Buley Rockhole. Enjoy a homemade style lunch in between the stops of your tour to recharge and relax.
Observe the incredible jumping crocodiles in a cruise along the Adelaide River. Watch as your guide baits the massive predators with food, then marvel as they jump out of the water and snap with jaws that could crush steel. Later on, visit Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre and watch birds of prey scavenge for leftovers, and witness an educational display of the wetlands, before going off to Fogg Dam Nature Reserve where you can walk among a diverse menagerie of bird and reptile life.
See more of the beautiful outdoors on a cruise along Katherine Gorge, where you will sail deep into the stone country of Nitmiluk National Park. Listen to ancient Aboriginal dreamtime stories and marvel at the natural landscape, then enjoy a delicious buffet lunch at the Visitors Centre in the park.
