Tour ID: 10054941
Immerse yourself in the flora and fauna of Fogg Dam. Enjoy an amazing Aussie BBQ lunch in Batchelor & explore the raw beauty of Litchfield National Park on the Litchfield’s Gold - Sunrise to Sunset tour.
Greet the outback sunrise as you are picked up from your accommodation around 0600 am by Rob or Tracey and relax in our comfortable Mercedez touring vehicle. As the golden rays highlight the warm, red tones of the landscape, you’ll head south east on your way to Fogg Dam and a mad house of birds, wallabies, crocodiles and random wildlife. Plenty of time for photos or to just sit and watch the antics as you sip on a lovely cup of tea whilst enjoying our homemade mango muffins.
Following morning tea we’ll make way for the iconic country township of Batchelor. Situated on the doorstep of Litchfield National Park this is the perfect place to take a moment and get a feel for country life in the NT. It also happens to be the best place for a quiet Top End BBQ (featuring marinated crocodile, water buffalo, kangaroo and fresh, seasonal produce). Also of importance here is the museum, an awesome collection of images and information which brings to life defining periods and activities of the region.
Batchelor, not a place to drive past!
When the time is right we then head towards Litchfield National Park. Here, you’ll find yourself in awe more than once as you explore this unique and untouched wilderness. Walking through this ancient landscape, looking for secretive wildlife hidden amongst primordial rock formations covered in diverse Gondwanian flora.
You may choose to hike through the monsoonal rainforests, past creeks and onto cliffs for that perfect photo opportunity. Perhaps you’d like to cool off with a swim or snorkel under a clear, spring-fed waterfall, or just relax on the banks, admiring the views. Whatever mood you are in, there is an activity to suit you.
At some point though the sun will begin it’s decent which means it is time for us to call it a day. This usually means we will have you back in the city around 7:00pm accompanied by the glorious vista of our Top End’s famous sunset and full of great memories for years to come.
