Day 1 - Wet Season tour to Litchfield & Kakadu
Darwin to Litchfield
Begin your 3 day wet season adventure with a convenient 8 am pickup from the front of your accommodation. From that point forward you are on Top End time and at the complete mercy of mother nature. A sometimes moody host she can decide to put on a bit of a show (storm) or demonstrate her tender side of rainbows and butterflies. Lets hope for both.
Our playground / classroom today is the WATERFALL | PARADISE of Litchfield National Park. Sporting a variety of walks, swim spots, unique wildlife and wonderous views we are going to deep dive into it all.
Key beauties such as Wangi Falls, Florence Falls, Tolmer Falls! These are staples of this tour. As too the crazy big termite mounds and their enigmatic cousins, the magnetic termites. Try some seasonal bush foods of the non-toxic variety and learn the use of many more.
