Spend a day in the natural habitat of fascinating wildlife creatures at Litchfield National Park. After being picked up from your accommodation at approximately 6:00 AM, ride in air-conditioned comfort to the famous Adelaide River. There, you'll board your private boat and cruise up the river.

You may even see a crocodile launching itself out of the water with the power of its tail! At the famous Litchfield National Park, you'll visit three waterfalls - the Wangi, Florence and Buley rock holes - and get the opportunity to swim in all three! Lunch is prepared in the park by your guide - a big bush picnic with an array of wraps, cold meats, breads, salad and fruit. Snacks are also included along the way if you're ever feeling peckish! Local and knowledgeable guides will give you thorough commentary throughout the day and stop for lots of photo opportunities. Marvel at the magnetic and cathedral termite mounds, and take time to visit the butterfly farm.

Had a fantastic day on the Croc cruise and litchfield Park swimming holes. Lars was a fantastic guide who I'd happily spend full days with talking and joking. Will definitely do another croc cruise with the same company again, I think the boat drivers name was Andy and he was a great laugh also. Fantastic day tour

Had a fantastic trip. We had Lars as our guide and he was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable. Cant fault it, I would highly recommend, one of my highlights from my Darwin trip!

Excellent tour with a friendly and hilarious tour guide (Lars) who was also very knowledgeable and took us to many beautiful places!
