Cruise through some of the most crocodile infested rivers in the world and get up close and personal with these deadly creatures.

Where we visit:
Get off to a bright and early start with a pick up from your Darwin accommodation between 6:45am and 7:45am. Drive to the Adelaide River where you'll board the boat for a private jumping crocodile cruise. Here, you'll be accompanied by friendly and experienced croc-handler, Pat. The purpose-built boats mean that you can get up close and personal with some really big crocs, a must-do Territory experience!
Make sure your cameras are at the ready to capture a glimpse of the magnificent giant saltwater crocodiles as they leap out of the water, and keep an eye on the skies as big birds of prey like the stunning white breasted sea eagle also swoop down to get in on the action.
When the adrenaline subsides, it’s time to get back on the road and head to the beautiful Litchfield National Park, a highlight of anyone’s trip to the Northern Territory. En route, swing by Batchelor Township, an old mining town and the main entry point to the National Park. Let friendly local guides show you around and share their expert knowledge on Darwin and Litchfield National Park’s history and culture. Afterwards, you'll make a brief stop in Litchfield to marvel at some incredible magnetic and cathedral-esque termite mounds!
Enjoy a break for lunch, and then drive deep into the heart of the National Park, uncovering the secrets of the area. Explore the incredibly beautiful Wangi Falls, a series of tiered drops that fall from around 50m! On a hot day, there’s no better feeling than diving into the stunning plunge pool and enjoying the breathtaking views from the bottom of the falls.
Next up is the beautiful Buley Rockholes, a relaxing collection of crystal clear swimming holes and mini falls set against a backdrop of lush forest and colourful rocks. This is a great place to take some photos and relax before heading down the road to Florence Falls. Florence Falls is a series of waterfalls that cut through the lush jungle and come to a stunning crescendo in a beautiful plunge pool. Litchfield National Park is also a haven for thousands of species of wildlife, so keep your eyes peeled, you never know what you might spot!
At the end of the day, head back to Darwin for a sunset with fresh prawns and bubbles to enjoy.
Please note that pick up from Palmerston and beyond on the way out of Darwin to the Adelaide River is unavailable. You can be dropped back at your accommodation on the way back into Darwin, however, you may miss out on the prawns and champagne sunset. Feel free to meet the tour group in Darwin at any of the CBD pick up points in the morning, or come into town with the group, then make your own way back to your out of town accommodation after the sunset finale.
