Litchfield National Park contains several types of typical Top End habitats, including lush monsoon forests, termite mounds, unusual rock formations, waterfalls and cascades. During the green season, four major waterfalls thunder from the cliffs to tropical rock pools many metres below. The first stop of the day is Florence Falls, where you have the opportunity for an interpretive bush and monsoon vine forest walk. There is also the chance for a swim, by making your way down the stairs to the plunge pool below. Travel on to Tolmer Falls for a magnificent view of the water cascading into the deep waterhole at the base of the falls, followed by a visit to Wangi Falls. On the way back to Darwin, you will stop at Howard Spring Nature Park, where you will have the chance to feed the barramundi and turtles. This is a great day for photography, including the amazing stand of termite mounds. (B, L)
