Wet Season LITCHFIELD tour*

Rise and shine and be ready for a 7.00 am pickup from your Darwin accommodation.

Up early to get us straight out to Litchfield National Park and on to some of those magical short walks.  Some of these will even end in your own swimming hole !

Enjoy a plunge pool or two or try your hand at swimming under a waterfall. There is plenty of adventure on this tour.

Spend the day exploring the best of what the national park has to offer. This may include a visit to the bottom of Florence Falls for a swim, snorkel or relaxation.  Perhaps a monsoon forest walk, a bit of wildlife spotting or just appreciating the giant and magnetic termite mounds.

During the wet season places like Buley Rockhole, Tolmer Falls, Wangi Falls and Tabletop Wetland come into their own.  High flows and cascading torrents sending spray into the heavens to the dramatic thundering soundtrack of the falls.  

With ample time for photos, relaxation and reflection you will be back at your Darwin  accommodation around 5 pm.

Be prepared for a personal, intimate introduction to the Top End.

What a fabulous day we had at Litchfield National Park. Rob was a wonderful guide with a wealth of knowledge on both the environment & the history of the area. Rob is very passionate about the Northern Territory & loves showing it off.
The food was incredible & being on a gluten free diet wasn’t a problem…Robs wife Tracey did a wonderful job…even baking me a gf mango muffin!
So if you want a great experience with someone who really knows the country I would highly recommend Ethical Adventures.
Thankyou for a brilliant experience! 👍😀😎

From swimming at waterfalls, to lunch in the wetlands( sorry it was a swamp but much to nice to be called a swamp) I enjoyed it all. Dan our guide had a wealth of knowledge and it was so obvious that he loved this part of the NT. Robs attention to detail and making sure we stayed well fed and hydrated left nothing undone. A great company and a must if you are visiting Darwin. I did this tour during the worst wet season that Darwin had had for a while but it made those waterfalls even more magnificent. Thanks guys for showing me the NT

Stands out from all other tours

Rob was a sensational tour guide and allowed the group to take in all the beautiful sights of Litchfield National park at our own pace and no strict time table. This suited our small group of solo travelers so well as we felt we were part of the tour and not just followers. With ethical adventures you will not only appreciate the unique eco system that is needed to be in balance for all the beauty you see to present but you come away with a better understanding of the Litchfield National park that you do not get on any other tour. Believe me I have done three different tours of Litchfield National Park and this one was defiantly the best. I mut also must mention the amazing food with snacks along the way and your own personally prepared salad to eat in total tranquility where you have rime to take in nature and even meditate if you wish while having your lunch, Thanks Rob for a fabulous day out in Australia's best National Park.

Thanks Chris, your response to our tour is much appreciated particularly since you have been to the park 3 times ! Your love for Litchfield is in itself inspiring and reminds me just how fortunate we are to be able to operate in its boundaries and within its wonders. I look forward to catching up with you again sometime 🙂 Be well, Rob

10/10 Ethical Tourism!

10/10. Rob and the Ethical Adventures team are absolute heroes! Within 10 seconds of meeting Rob he made me feel like family. I went on the 1 Day tour of Litchfield in the Wet Season and it was incredible! No matter what the weather Rob will find some amazing, special things to show you (like breath-taking waterfalls!). He went above and beyond to help us understand, appreciate and want to protect the natural environment of the national park. Rob’s natural charisma meant the conversation flowed easily throughout the day and there were many laughs amongst our small, intimate group with plenty of chances to ask questions. If your experience is anything like mine then you’ll be left feeling awe-struck, inspired and itching to come back to see more of the NT, do more Ethical Adventure tours and help protect our country’s natural wonders! (If none of that convinces you, the home-made mango muffins served warm alongside an iced coffee should win you over.)

Hey Sarah, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and for your well composed praise. To be fair I should also thank you for your input into the day. It was an easy day with you and the explorers on the day as your attitudes and enthusiasm were well match to the exciting and beautiful Wet Season characteristics of the Top End. All the best with your new career now that you are back on home soil.
