    So many opportunities for food and gifts.
    Great seeing everyone down on the beach. We were there on the last night before wet season.

    Large range of Australian reptiles.
    Definitely recommend doing the VIP tour, not only do you get to learn all about the Crocodiles and other reptiles , from staff who are passionate about the animals, but also the chance to hold a Snake, and a baby freshwater Crocodile, and then the opportunity to feed a Saltwater Crocodile.

    Another great NT water experience. Easily accessible; walks as well as mini-waterfalls; a nice way to cool off after a day's adventure at the Territory Wildlife Park.

    We visited the Botanic Gardens at the end of our half day tour of the city. This was a better option than being dropped back at our hotel. We enjoyed a light lunch in the cafe before exploring the gardens. The visitors centre is worth visiting to learn more about the gardens including the cyclones and personalities who shaped its development. Overall, the gardens are well maintained and it’s easy walking, but can be hot. Worth visiting.

    We had a great visit however some off the attractions were disappointing - promised tigers were non existent.
    The croc feeding was informative and the jumping crocodile cruise well worth the extra cost.

    What to say, it is a reserve after all. We went there for afternoon tea (bring your own) ab=nd found it quite nice and relaxing. A bit dry but what else would you expect in Darwin temperatures. Managed to see some of the wildlife, but our dog was disappointed as she was not allowed to have a run here.

    Our AAT Tour took us here along with some food to feed the fish. There were good toilets at this stop which many off the coach used.

    This is a slightly weird experience - feeding bread (is that really good ?) to lots of different fish who get up close and personal. Having said that, all the kids who were there were clearing have a great time.

    We enjoyed visiting the park, which was across the road from our hotel. We also enjoyed visiting Darwin parkrun which conducted in this park every Saturday morning at 7am. The locals were very welcoming and it was a fun experience. The gardens are well maintained and it is a pleasure to visit.

    Lots of insect bites even after using repellent. Great war display which is free of charge. Easy driving even on a coach.

    amazing experience, the water being so salty, we just floated, which was a wonderful, relaxing feeling. Would have liked to see more shade provided, if possible over the water.

    We did the 1.3km each way walk from the car park into the lower Cascades: a lovely, generally shady walk with the last 150m a bit of a rock scramble.

    The reward is some delightful little cascading falls and rock holes that are just delightful to take a dip kin: croc free.

    One of our favourite spots visite during our four days at Litchfield national park.

    We stopped here quickly and there was not a single person around. We went to the edge of the boat ramp and heard a very strange sound and something moving in the mangrove area, it was definitely a croc! There was heaps of parking, picnic tables and toilets. Just be warned with the crocs!
