A brilliant day spent discovering the secrets of Litchfield with our passionate and knowledgeable owner (Ethical Adventures)/tour leader Rob.
A days self drive could NEVER have alerted us so comprehensively to the historical, geographical, cultural and environmental background of Litchfield.
Rob was a superb guide, informative, fun and always ahead of the crowd: we enjoyed 'private"secluded pristine swimming holes, opportunity for reflection and contemplation within the stunning bushland and many other personal touches that only a
small group tour can offer.
Rob, our 'No 1 ' tour guide also cooked the best wild barramundi I have ever tasted! I am still talking about it! Thank you Rob for sharing your passion for Litchfield with us.
Cheaper tours may be available but this one is certainly value for money.
Thanks Margaret for your endorsement and taking the time to review our Litchfield tour from Darwin. It was a fun day and one well spent on my behalf as you all were a pleasure to interact with. Life is good, thank you 🙂 ... Rob
Our small group tour to Litchfield National Park was just perfect. Rob, our guide was very knowledgeable on environmental aspects, flora, fauna and rock formations on this beautiful park. To have the opportunity to swim in a rock pool and waterfall was a highlight. Rob's attention to detail, sense of humour was excellent. Our Barra fish lunch was delicious and the end of the day sitting quietly in the wetlands enjoying a cup of tea. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Rob's tours.
Litchfield was my long-standing bucket list ever since I saw the pictures online! And it was well worth fulfilling the dream after Four years! I was awestruck by the picturesque natural beauty pinching myself, again and again, to believe that such a wonderful place ever exists in the present era! I wish to repeat this visit again at least once in my life.
Plus, you get to taste homemade MANGO MUFFIN, BEST COOKIE (i ever had) and other little surprises along the way! I did a day tour and in all seriousness, it set the bar high for a day tour! Thank you, Rob, for sharing all your knowledge with us and creating this awesome day trip. If you are looking for an ethical, and fun tour. You found it, you won't regret booking it with Rob!
Review via Trip Advisor
The day trip to Lichfield was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. Rob, our attentive and knowledgeable guide looked after our small group of four with just the right balance of information and space. He was engaging with everyone and it felt as though we were guests in his home. Batchelor museum was a nice start to the day, with interesting pieces of the varied history of the tiny town. The swim in the waterfall, and delicious fresh Barra lunch were the highlights for me with a quiet time in the wetlands a lovely finish to the day. I couldn’t recommend Robs tour more. Everything was thought of and every need met.
