Depart Batchelor and do a loop of Litchfield park in the wet season with landings at Sandy Creek, Termite Mounds and Lost City included. Enjoy a picnic lunch and a swim at your own private waterhole at Sandy Creek as part of this tour.
Sandy Creek has got to be the best place to cool off in Litchfield! Situated at the top of Sandy Creek falls this isolated swimming hole is croc safe all year round and can be all yours for a picnic lunch. We land right where you swim and spend time enjoying this remote location.
The Lost City ground tour is by far the best way to check out these incredible stone structures. Take your time wandering through the ancient stone pillars with your experienced Pilot and guide.
This tour also gets you up close and personal with the NT’s number one grazer… The Termites! Check out the incredible Magnetic and Cathedral termites in their favourite habitat. Your pilot will fly you as close to the termite mounds as possible and explain the ecosystem and how it all works. Spot wild buffaloes enjoying their time in the mud!
This tour is great value for money and the best way to experience the highlights of Litchfield National Park.

Landing at Sandy Creek to enjoy a picnic lunch and a swim
Depart Batchelor and fly over the WWII Gould airstrip on the way for a landing at the historic Snake Creek Armament Depot for a ground tour. The Depot site provides valuable evidence of the impact of World War II on the Territory, and the remaining structures on site have a powerful visual effect.
Continue on to Adelaide River for another landing to experience The Adelaide River War Cemetery – a sobering reminder of the impact World War II had on this part of Australia. This cemetery is the only place in Australia where WWII diggers were laid to rest, with are over 400 military burials in total.
Return to Batchelor via WWII Coomalie Airfield K5 Anti-Aircraft Battery site. Constructed 1942 and located on a ridge, it is highly significant to the Territory as a relatively intact example of a wartime gun battery position developed for airfield protection against airborne attack. The site serves as a reminder of the impact and extent of Japanese air raids on north Australia and of air and artillery operations conducted in the region during World War II.
