In addition to its many natural highlights the park also holds important cultural and historical value.  The land within the borders of Litchfield National Park has cultural significance to the Werat, Warray, Koongurrukun and Marranuggu Aboriginal people.

The park was originally named after Frederick Henry Litchfield, a member of the Finnis Expedition, who provided the first European connection to the area back in 1864. Until 1955 the area was mined in part for copper and tin followed by pastoral activity before being proclaimed a National Park in 1986.


Compared to fixed wing aircraft, our helicopters have enhanced manoeuverability and are fitted with oversized viewing windows creating a premium scenic flight experience.  Your pilot can easily adjust speed, altitude and direction of travel in response to wildlife sightings or other points of interest while ensuring passengers on both sides of the aircraft receive equal chance to capture that perfect photo opportunity.

All guests are supplied with quality headsets fitted with voice activated microphones to enjoy the live inflight commentary and allow conversation directly with your pilot and other passengers.


Camera, sun smart clothing including hat, sunglasses and sunscreen (SPF 50+ recommended)
Something to swim in and a towel.
