** Batchelor

The gorgeous town of Batchelor is the gateway to Litchfield National Park. Up until WWII, Batchelor was a sleepy little hollow. Then it became an allied air force base and the population grew quickly. When uranium was discovered near Batchelor in 1949, the town once again grew until the mine was closed in 1963. Today, Batchelor's townsfolk love to host visitors to Litchfield National Park and it's here that you'll enjoy morning tea (own expense) at one of their local cafés.

** Litchfield National Park

Established in 1986, Litchfield National Park is a truly stunning destination. Here you can take in the splendour of thundering falls, rainforest pockets and sacred historic sites. The traditional custodians of Litchfield National Park are the Wagait people, many of whom still call the area home.

** Termite Mounds

The termite mounds found at Litchfield National Park are the incredible architectural works of local termites. Complete with arches, tunnels, chimneys and nursery chambers, the mounds will leave you mystified. Listen and learn as your Driver Guide explains the difference between Cathedral and Magnetic mounds.

** Florence Falls

View the spectacular double waterfalls of Florence Falls from a high vantage point before making your way down the stairs to take a dip in the gorgeous plunge pool, if you need to cool down a little. Head back up through forest and open woodland. There's also time for an interpretive walk through the scenic bush and monsoon vine forest.

** Tolmer Falls

One of the three major waterfalls along the western face of the Tabletop Range, Tolmer Falls is a truly spectacular sight. You'll marvel at the water cascading down into the deep waterhole at the base of the falls, which is home to several colonies of rare ghost bats and orange horseshoe bats.

** Lunch at Litchfield Cafe

Time for a well-earned break. As part of your tour enjoy lunch at Litchfield Café. Relax, enjoy the company of your fellow travellers and recount the morning's adventure.

Included Meals: Lunch
