Day one

Darwin to Litchfield
A leisurely departure from Darwin this morning will take you south along the Stuart Highway bound for the ultimate natural playground - Litchfield National Park. In just over an hour, enjoy a quiet break in the lovely tidy town of Batchelor, where you can visit Batchelor Museum and take in the history and insights that brought war to Australia.

A further 40 minute drive, you will arrive at Florence Falls; for a short walk past the viewing platform and then down to the water for a fantastic swim beneath the falls.

Next stop, Buley Rockhole – known for its’ stunning set of rock pools and only 5 minutes from Florence Falls. Choose to have a dip or simply sit on the edge and hang your feet in to relax.

After a busy day it is time to head back towards Batchelor for your relaxing one night stay at the Batchelor Butterfly Farm/Cafe. Here you can sip the NT humidity away with a refreshing, ice cold mango smoothie, experience the amazing world of butterflies and farm animals.

Day three

Dundee Beach to Darwin

An early rise this morning in this picturesque paradise of Dundee Beach. If you’ve booked yourself a fishing charter (weather permitting), you’ll likely be spending a half day/or full day out chasing the big ones! If fishing isn’t your thing; enjoy a lazy walk along the beach taking in a spot of bird watching before breakfast.

Enroute back to Darwin, be sure to go see some of the famous sites along the Cox Peninsula Road: places like the Darwin River Tavern, the Territory Wildlife Park, or even try a spot of land based fishing at Barramundi Adventures.

Along this road you’ll also discover Berry Springs Nature Park; the park is seasonal for swimming, however you may like to enjoy a little rest stop and wander around the lush park grounds. Why not stop into Berry Springs Tavern for a delicious pub feed before heading back to Darwin.
