Book Now - Litchfield Grandeur and WWII Discovery


First we will travel back to the 40’s to discover the true effects and devastation of WWII. In the morning we travel south to Strauss Airstrip, a base for P40 Kittyhawk and Spitfire Squadrons. Learn about the terrifying air raids over Darwin.

Our next stop is the Adelaide River War Memorial, where we pay tribute to the courageous 435 men and women who were laid to rest after defending our great country during WWII. During WWII, Adelaide River was the headquarters of a large base and it was used by Australian General Hospitals Nos. 101, 107, 119, 121 and 129. The war cemetery was created especially for the burial of servicemen who died in this part of Australia .

After lunch we visit some of Litchfield’s beautiful waterfalls such as Florence Falls, where swimming may be available subject to conditions. Take a walk along the Shady Creek track or walk down the 135 steps witnessing the beautiful flora and fauna to the sounds of the majestic waterfall. Keep an eye out for wallabies often spotted in the area!

Next we go to Wangi Falls, another spring fed waterfall looking out for birdlife such as the Rainbow Bee-Eaters or Black Kites. Here you will also have the opportunity to take a stroll along the boardwalk, finding different vantage points of the spectacular falls as well as take in the surrounding plant and wildlife.

As we head back to Darwin, we make one final stop at the termite mounds. The termite mounds found in Litchfield are the incredible architectural works of local termites, complete with arches, tunnels, chimneys and nursery chambers. These mounds will leave you bewildered as your driver/guide explains how these mounds are created and the difference between them.
