You will be collected from your Darwin accommodation at approximately 7.00am for the short journey to Litchfield National Park. Explore the waterfalls, spring-fed streams and rugged sandstone escarpments of Litchfield National Park. Discover intriguing cathedral and magnetic termite mounds and swim, hike and explore Florence and Wangi Falls*. Enjoy lunch before crossing the 4 Wheel Drive Marrakai Road en-route to our private campsite in the Mary River region where the local wallaby population welcomes us on arrival. This afternoon experience a private two hour cruise spotting crocodiles, birds, buffalos and other wildlife. This is a magical experience away from the masses in an area with the one of the highest concentration of saltwater crocodiles found in the world. Return to camp, where Wallabies roam free, the pool is inviting and it's your choice tonight for million star views in a swag, our permanent tents or a hotel room for those seeking creature comforts.

We had a brilliant 3 days. Rich and Tom were great guides, and we didn't even mind the truck breaking down on the way back, as they did such a good job with their "bush mechanics". We've posted a glowing endorsement on TripAdvisor.
Mike and Linda.
