Litchfield National Park and Jumping Crocodile Cruise

292 reviews
Beat other boats to the jumping crocodiles on this early morning adventure. Marvel as saltwater crocs, which can grow up to 17 feet (5 meters), leap from the water to catch meat your guide dangles from the boat. Then explore Litchfield National Park. See termite mounds and swim in three croc-free zones—Wangi Falls, Buley Rockhole, and Florence Falls. Tour includes lunch, snacks, water, and transfers from many Darwin locations.

Two words MIND BLOWING. We went and visited The Royal Flying Doctor Service(RFDS) Museum & the Bombing of Darwin Harbour. Truly, one of the best interactive experiences showcasing & providing information on not only the RFDS and the invaluable work they do. But the Bombing of Darwin Harbour from the perspective of those that were there. This is achieved by watching movies, holograms and virtual reality experiences. So hard to explain how bloody good it was... definitely a place to visit when you come to Darwin.

We were a group of 6 who weren’t really sure what to expect. We were all impressed with this place. So interactive and informative about the bombing of Darwin and the history behind the RFDS. It really was an unexpected highlight. Staff were informed and friendly. Would highly recommend.

The facility offers 2 different experiences, an amazing 3D interactive bombing of Darwin and the more traditional RFDS museum display. Both very good. There is a free waterfront precinct shuttle which is great because it’s a long walk in the heat if you aren’t on a tour

A real eye opener, this is a must do on your visit to Darwin. Talking holograms, interactive displays. The bombing of Darwin in virtual reality. I found this place while I was on the hop on hop off red bus. Buy your RFDS tickets from the bus driver it's a bit cheaper if you are on a tight budget. I then caught the free wharf bus back to the other side and did the WW2 Oil Tunnels. People of all ages will enjoy a trip here. I'd allow an hour for the visit. I would certainly re visit again

Thank you for your great review ! We agree the Virtual Reality experience is amazing and we hope that you used the RFDS pass-out to enjoy lunch or a snack from the food outlets on the Wharf, before re-joining us in the air-conditioning to continue discovering the two iconic stories of the RFDS and the Bombing of Darwin Harbour Kind Regards Sam
