LITCHFIELD GRANDEUR AND WWII DISCOVERY

Join Grand Touring for a Litchfield discovery like no other as we travel back to the 40’s to discover the true effects and devastation of WWII.

In the morning we travel south to Strauss Airstrip as we learn about the terrifying air raids over Darwin.

Our next stop is the Adelaide River War Memorial, where we pay tribute to the courageous 435 men and women who were laid to rest after defending our great country during WWII. During WWII, Adelaide River was the headquarters of a large base.
The war cemetery was created especially for the burial of servicemen who died in this part of Australia.

After lunch we visit some of Litchfield’s beautiful waterfalls such as Florence Falls. Take a walk along the Shady Creek track or walk down the 135 steps witnessing the beautiful flora and fauna to the sounds of the majestic waterfall. Keep an eye out for wallabies often spotted in the area.

Next we travel to Wangi Falls, another spring fed waterfall looking out for birdlife such as the Rainbow Bee-Eaters or Black Kites.
As we head back to Darwin, we make one final stop at the termite mounds for an interactive chat.
