Check here for access information. Heavy wet season rainfall, crocodiles and road conditions can all prevent access to some areas from time to time. These destinations cover a wide range of conditions and distances, so please do your homework before deciding on your activities.

Many can be reached by using Tour Companies while others are off the beaten track and require a 4WD.

Swimming, bushwalking, fishing and just plain sightseeing are all on the menu. Read this account of one family's adventure in Litchfield Park

If you are just visiting, the professional Tours are no doubt the best option, and even for the locals they are worth considering for at least one trip through each area.
The main reason I say this is because of the knowledge and commentary that a good tour guide can give - it can make a place come alive. To see what I mean, try watching an hour of David Attenborough on TV with the sound turned off!

And on a drive yourself tour, you are probably looking in the wrong direction for the action as well.
