Top End Waterfalls and Wetlands

Experience the beauty of the Top End’s vibrant wet season 

Take a different view of the Top End by beating the crowds to experience a two-day Wet Season get-away. Join a Jumping Croc Cruise along the Adelaide River to see the pre-historic salt-water crocodiles and bird life enroute. View spectacular storms roll-in during the afternoon and learn about the significance that the Wet Season has to First Nation peoples. View the thunderous waterfalls, swim in Litchfield NP’s waterholes and visit a few watering holes too. Experienced tour guide 

Day 1 : Adelaide River Jumping Crocs
We set off from Darwin heading South to the Adelaide River joining the Jumping Croc Tours Original. See the powerful beasts leap out of the water, and abundant birdlife enroute. A short visit to the historical War Cemetery before a barra, buffalo or croc burger if you choose (at own expense). Surveying the floodplains from the ‘Windows on the Wetlands’ for any afternoon storms rolling in. We visit one of the Top End’s famous watering holes at Humpty Doo, before driving to our overnight accommodation near Litchfield National Park for our evening feast (included).
Meals :Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 2 : Litchfield to Darwin
After breakfast (included) the group visits the giant termite mounds, enroute to our first stop of the day at Buley’s Rockhole; a series of easy-to-access rockpools connected by fast flowing fresh-water streams. We take our time to re-fresh ourselves at these rock holes and Florence Falls, only stepping out of the cool water for a spot of lunch. We visit other Litchfield NP features such as Wangi and Tolmer Falls before a stop at our next watering hole at Berry Springs Tavern for a drink. It’s only a short drive before returning to Darwin in the late afternoon. Important notice: Some of the waterholes are quite deep so its critical that travelers are sufficient in swimming. The waterholes become an important way to cool down in the hot and humid conditions during the wet season. If you are NOT a capable swimmer, we recommend you do NOT join this trip.
