Sadly the weather was rather wet for this trip. I would have liked to have had more walking. We took short walks along sterile paths to look at some waterfalls and termite mounds.

A great guide but it is a long drive out to the waterfalls etc., and not a lot to see on the way. A very hot day so swimming was fun! The landscape does show a completely different part of Australia.

Long drive to the park but interesting to see the terrain. Good tour guide and driver! Enjoyed Wangi Falls, Florence Falls and Magnetic Termite Mounds. Lunch at Litchfield Café basic but okay. Drive around Darwin CBD at the end of the tour interesting.

Take your swimmers for Wangi Falls, you can swim at one before that but is a bit of a treck down to it and rocky. Lunch at Litchfield Café was great as well. Long day but worth it.

Had a great day at Litchfield, quite a long day, but fantastic scenery, well worth the $135 we paid, would highly recommend going there.

Unfortunately it was a very hot day to a tour of this nature and at the end of the dry season everything looked a little dead, I wasnt helped either by the lengthy stops that the bus made where everyone had to stand out in the 38 deg. heat for over 45 minutes just to see the waterfalls. Also too many toilet stops where once again people were standing in the heat for longer than necessary. Tour person was hard to understand and waffled on a lot and people gave up trying to make out what she was talking about. There were crocodiles promised on this tour but that was taken off the agenda the day of the tour. A lot of disgruntled people at lunch who were expecting a lot more for the amount they had paid.

Good excursion - a very full day. Interesting to see the waterfalls in the wet season (it was February) but there wouldn't be much in the dry season. The included lunch was good. The visit to the crocodile farm was very good and we had the opportunity to hold a smmall corcodile and to feed a very large one. We arrived back just on departure time. The cost $US179 was dearer than local tours, however the local ones left before the ship would have been cleared.

Litchfield Park is about two hours south of Darwin in a lush rolling hill area with interesting termite mounds and waterfalls. Termite mounds of about 15 or more feet tall can be seen as you drive through the park. You will enjoy stopping to take pictures and read about the history of the mounds. During the winter, the waterfalls can be gorgeous, but they harbor crocodiles at the bottom of the fall where many Australians love to swim. Roads are well paved except on a few outlying parts of the park. On many of these side roads you will need a 4x4 to see some of the best scenery. Most tour groups will stop for food as they exit the park. Don't expect many concession stands where you can find food. This is a good excursion to see some of the more remote areas of Australia without traveling hundreds of miles.

We chose this tour as possibly being a less hot way to spend the day than a city tour, but it was a bit of a waste really - a long drive each way to get there to see some big termite mounds and a waterfall where you couldn't swim because previous visitors had been eaten by crocs. There was also a visit to a crocodile farm - was OK. A nice lunch included.
