Litchfield National Park

After a good night at Darwin, we all went to the Litchfield National Park. The first stop in the park was the magnetic termites which are a completely different species of termites because, unlike other termites, they have an inbuilt compass. The reason why they have this is so that the nests are built facing north, making the smallest area possible exposed to the sun, cooling the nest. Next on the list was Wangi Falls, this was a freshwater lake with a waterfall. What was surprising was that the surrounding area was rainforest and the it suddenly disappeared and changed to grasslands. The water was very cold, but it was also very nice. After 3 hours we left to see Florence Falls where we had to walk across rocks to a water fall that was not as good as the other one. After a quick dip we headed off.
