Litchfield National Park

Water monitors are common around Litchfield National Park’s rockpools (watch for the large, dark brown to black Merten’s water monitor or the much smaller Mitchell’s water monitor, with its distinctive yellow spots or flecks). Pythons dwell in the moist, tropical vegetation and bats inhabit large caverns – Tolmer Falls has colonies of rare orange horseshoe bats and ghost bats. The latter species, carnivorous and dubbed false vampires, have pale translucent wings. Across the grassy plains dotted with massive magnetic and cathedral termite mounds, you might see dingoes and agile wallabies. In the woodlands are red-tailed black cockatoos, lorikeets and honeyeaters.
