1 Day Private Tour of Litchfield National Park
Leaving the city behind we make our way south towards Batchelor and Litchfield National Park. The township of Batchelor sits just to the east of the park and is commonly known as the Gateway to Litchfield. Originally a mining town, Batchelor played a significant role in the pioneering history of the Top End and during the Second World War. We continue to travel on and enter Litchfield National Park, stopping by the impressive Cathedral and Magnetic Termite Mounds. Here we can get up close with the mound structures and hear about the significant role termites play within the unique tropical ecosystem of the Top End.
Heading further into the Park we travel up onto the Table Top Range and visit Florence Falls and Buley Rockhole where you will have the option to swim in their adjacent fresh, cool, plunge pools and walk along the Shady Creek walk through the monsoon forest. The scenic viewing platform high above Florence Falls provides great photo opportunities of the panoramic views of falls and the waterhole below, while at Buley Rockhole you can sit, relax and let the water flow past you, while absorbing the scenic bush surrounds.
After a freshly prepared picnic lunch, a short drive along the range takes us to the parking area of Tolmer Falls. Situated on the Western edge of the Table Top Range, the walking path to Tolmer Falls provides views overlooking the lowlands landscapes for miles.
Next, we travel down the range to Wangi Falls. Here you will see the water from the twin falls cascade over the rock escarpment into the large pool below. There are various walking tracks, including a loop walk that takes you up and over the falls, or a less strenuous walk through the monsoon forest to a treetop viewing platform.
After taking in the views and cooling off in the crystal clear plunge pool (seasonal restrictions apply), we start to make our way back towards the Tropical City of Darwin using one of the lesser-travelled roads, returning early in the evening.

Guidelines for your travel with us here in Australia’s Top End:

Offroad Dreaming will host your visit through the Northern Territory.  Offroad Dreaming Guides will use their knowledge, training and experience, along with our exceptional customer service standards, to share some of the quality experiences and activities the Top End offers.  Our Guides are fully licensed and accredited, and first-aid qualified. They hold knowledge certification and Ochre cards where required.  All our Guides are hand selected, with appropriate experience and references.  We will work with you to find the right Guide for your group.

You will not need to bring any food with you.

We provide fresh snacks and meals based on whole food ingredients, which can be amended to cater for special dietaries when required. Chilled, filtered drinking water is provided. Please bring a refillable water bottle.

Itinerary Changes

Throughout the day, if you would like to amend the itinerary or spend more or less time at each location, please consult with your Guide, who can restructure the day as you go.


Please be aware of the walking distance of each trek and take a full water bottle with you each time. You will walk on bush tracks with loose dirt, sticks and stones. Suitable supportive footwear is recommended.

Travel Distances

Distances between locations in the Northern Territory can be vast. Itineraries are designed to minimise driving times as much as possible. Your drive will be broken up with regular comfort stops, and you are welcome to discuss additional stops with the Guide at any time. Some of our larger vehicles also have onboard toilet facilities.

The Vehicle

Offroad Dreaming has a variety of their own 2 Wheel Drive and 4 Wheel drive vehicles available for your transport. We will allocate you the most suitable vehicle depending on your group size and itinerary. We also work with other local vehicle providers when additional or extra sizes of vehicles are required. All vehicles are fully accredited, licensed, and insured to carry passengers and fitted with specific tour vehicle plates and are maintained to a high standard. Our vehicles are not wheelchair accessible.  Small walking aids can be stored in the back of the vehicle or trailer, depending on group size or vehicle.


Wildlife, such as wallabies, birds, snakes, frogs and lizards, can be spotted and observed throughout the region, which is made up of Savannah Woodlands, Monsoon Forest and sandstone formations.  We do not approach wildlife but will have the opportunity to observe them in their natural habitat.  Most of our wildlife is not naturally aggressive and generally does not approach humans unless provoked. Many species of snakes inhabit the Top End of Australia. Not all are venomous. Your Guide is fully trained to manage any health and safety requirements. Spider bites can cause mild sickness. Their bites are not fatal. Estuarine crocodiles do inhabit our waterways. Regular water surveys are carried out in designated swimming spots. Please observe swim safety signs at all times. Your Guide will also be available with safety updates.

Subject to change

Your itinerary may be subject to change due to cultural, seasonal and/ or environmental conditions. We aim to replace unavailable activities and locations with suitable alternatives.


Our Dry Season runs from May to October, and the weather is typically dry with light winds. Daytime temperatures average in the mid-30s, with low humidity and mild nights ranging from 15-25°C. November to April is the Wet Season in the Top End, tropical storms bring long-awaited rain, and the bush comes alive. Days can be sunny and dry and not adversely affected; however, it is monsoon season, and the rains can cause localised flooding, resulting in temporary road closures.  We are given advance notice of upcoming weather events and will make appropriate amendments to your itinerary.  In extreme cases, we may have to cancel.  Temperatures can range from 20-30°C overnight and up to the high 30s and 40s during the day.  Humidity levels often reach 80% or more, causing the temperature to feel hotter than it is.
