Batchelor Things to Do: 4 reviews and 16 photos
My stop off in Bachelor was only brief and that was for fuel , essential water and some information on the National Park itself..being the middle of winter I was really appreciating the thirty degree C temperatures that made for a great day and perfect weather to be out and about , but after many hours walking at different sites in the National Park even the winter heat can take its toll on the unwary. There are many great sites waterfalls and swimming holes like "Buley Rockhole" to be enjoyed. You will surely be amazed at the size of the many "magnetic" Termite Mounds that dot the landscape with many standing over two meters tall and so named as the way they are placed in a magnetic north / south orientation. to maintain a certain temperature within the mound. Make sure that you visit "The Lost City"
Take notice of the WARNING signs for crocodiles and ONLY swim where its safe to do so
I and four friends hired a small car in Darwin and set out for the day ...This was a very cheap way to see the National Park as your own transport is a neccesity..The round trip for the day was about three hundred kilometers and after fuel and hire car rates with all costs split five ways ...it was only AUST$20.00 each..so ..what an inexpensive day out!!! to see one of the great National Parks here in the Northern Territory..
