Darwin: Premium Litchfield Regional Small Group Day Tour

1. Darwin: Premium Litchfield Regional Small Group Day Tour

Your day begins around 07:30, with pick-ups in the city at your accommodation doorstep before heading out for an early morning dip and morning tea in the refreshing crystal clear waters of Berry Springs. Paddle around and watch the many fish, look for turtles, or sit casually under the waterfall - it's your difficult decision to make! Having set the tone for the day, you will leave Berry Springs and re-join the Stuart Highway on your journey to Batchelor Town. Along the way, get to know the landscape and history of the Top End as your local guide lets you in on the past and present before arriving at Batchelor Town. Here we take the time to enjoy the Batchelor Museum which showcases many personal stories of the people and events which shaped the Northern Territory and Australia as a whole. It is also the perfect spot to sit and enjoy a gourmet lunch in peace and quiet in an exclusive lunch spot. After lunch you will enter Litchfield National Park and begin to discover why this is the most popular park in the Territory. Full of places to visit, the list includes the iconic Cathedral and Magnetic Termite mounds, Wangi Falls, Tolmer Falls, and Tabletop Wetland. There is ample opportunity here to go for a stroll along the rainforest shaded creeks, or just sit and relax. If bush survival is of interest to you, you can be shown some of the native plants and their uses.

Darwin: Royal Flying Doctors Service Entry Ticket

2. Darwin: Royal Flying Doctors Service Entry Ticket

The Royal Flying Doctor Service Darwin Tourist Facility provides an insight into the history of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the Bombing of Darwin Harbour. This exciting development at Stokes Hill Wharf brings to life 2 quintessential Australian stories. The 1st story is the Royal Flying Doctor Service, affectionately known throughout Australia as the RFDS. Founded by the Reverend John Flynn, it began its aeromedical operations in the Northern Territory in 1939. The 2nd story featured is the Bombing of Darwin Harbour on 19th February 1942. The bombing of the harbor brought destruction to the city of Darwin. Many of the experiences and stories of what happened that day are told through state of the art technology. Take a self-guided tour of the exhibition, knowing that the staff members are always available to assist as required. When you arrive, a staff member will provide an outline of the facility, explain the timings for the holographic cinema sessions and the Window of the 1942 bombing platform. Enjoy a range of interactive and VR experiences that bring history to life. Learn about the heroes and survivors who experienced the raids. Admire a decommissioned RFDS Pilatus PC-12 that allows visitors to experience a fully equipped aeromedical plane.

What people are saying about Darwin

The tour included not only the history of the RFDS, but also the bombing of Darwin in 1942. Hologram presentations and virtual reality experiences really brought the exhibitions to life and complemented the static displays. It was fun to actually sit in a plane formerly used by the RFDS and listen to recordings of real-life conversations between medical and flight staff as a patient was transported to hospital. I enjoyed my visit very much and thought it was great value for money.

Clancy was full of zing and zest; information and inspiration. Time at Bachelor was interesting, but focus s/be on activities at Batchelor, not the bombing of Darwin which is well covered by museums in Darwin. Suggest guides avoid the film there. Snacks and lunch tasty and refreshing. Thoughtful touches such as frozen towels appreciated

This tour to Litchfield national park is excelent, it is informative and our guide Rob is a world of knowledge in all aspects of the NT. Rob is passionate about conservation and promoting sustainable tourism in the top end. Take the oportunity to go and enjoy this tour, you will not be dissapointed. Terry Mason July 2021

Great walk, interesting and informative history and a good guide. Enjoyed it very much. Well worth doing this walk to familiarise yourself with Darwin if your first visit. Thank you

Very well presented. I felt the plane, pilot and patient experience was well done
