Day 1 – darwin to Litchfield National Park

Starting after lunch on DAY ONE you will meet your expert guide at the front of your accommodation in Darwin and begin the journey south to Litchfield National Park.

Objective today is to get to Litchfield, set up camp, go for a quick dip and get comfy before the sun goes down and the dingo’s begin to howl.  Paramount to this is also getting a camp fire started so we can stare into the abys whilst enjoying our early evening refreshments.  Their is opportunity here to refine your skills in fire starting using  nothing but sticks.  Get your cave man on !

Day 2 – Hikes, swims and other cool moments

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before beginning your exploration of Litchfield Park.  Travel back in time as you visit historic mining ruins and ponder the nature of life on the frontier.  See also mother natures statues (Cathedral and Magnetic Termite mounds) in and around the woodland, grassland and forests that form the natural backdrop as you provide witness to the scene.

Undertake short hikes into secluded swim spots and viewpoints during the early afternoon before seeking the perfect location to savor dinner and watch the golden rays of sunset play across the ancient sandstone landforms of Litchfield Park.

As the ochre colors gain intensity and daylight closes out it is time to move back to camp for afternoon refreshments and sunset watching vigil 🙂  Campfire time and camp cooking at its finest tonight.

After dinner enjoy a bit of star gazing and conversation before you ease into your tent of dreams.

Day 3 – Litchfield National Park

Rising early with the birds for a light breakfast we embarking on further adventures.  Today we will be going off on a bush walk to a remote waterfall accessible only by foot.  Secluded, quiet and pristine.  What more could you ask for.  Along the way continue your education in native foods and resources in the area. 

Todays hike will be around 6-10 km and involve some trackless walking and steep climbs.  

Following the hike we return to pack up camp and journey back to Darwin.

Litchfield camping tour

A tour with Ethical Adventures is one that will stay with you long after it’s over. My 2 day/1 night Litchfield trip was fantastic! Rob is knowledgeable and passionate about the NT - we went to the most stunning locations for walking and swimming and our overnight camp - he guided us to places away from crowds so we often had swimming holes to ourselves! The food was great and we enjoyed banter a plenty!

Rob’s passion for the environment and the ethics behind travel are second to none. This is the kind of travel operator that will ensure the longevity and sustainability of the ‘WOW moments’ we all seek as a traveler.

Great overnight in Litchfield

Amazing 2 day experience in Litchfield. Everything is fully catered for all you have to do is turn up and enjoy the experience.
Rob has so much knowledge of the area, carefully plans each hike, lagoon swim around what will give you the best experience. For me that meant I got to see the beautiful natural areas without the crowds.
I highly recommend for anyone wanting to explore the natural wonders of Litchfield.
