The Northern Territory is home to some of the most famous national parks in the world. Darwin is skirted by two of the Northern Territory's stunning national parks: Mary River National Park and Litchfield National Park.

The Mary River National Park is a protected national park located in the Northern Territory of Australia, about 100 kilometres east of Darwin. The park covers an area of approximately 70,000 hectares and is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, including many species found nowhere else in the world like the exotic Brolga - our version of the pink flamingo! The Brolga is one of Australia’s most iconic birds and the only species of crane worldwide that is native to Australia. Several walking trails and picnic areas are located within the park providing visitors with opportunities to explore the region's natural beauty. The park is popular for birdwatching, bushwalking, and nature photography.

Litchfield National Park is known for its beautiful waterfalls, such as the Twin Falls and the Wangi Falls, which provide a welcome respite from the heat of the summer sun. The park also has a number of hiking trails, allowing visitors to explore the captivating landscape and see the park's many hidden wonders.
