3o years ago through his photographic work and their four-wheel
excursions into the area, Bob and Robin Davis (proprietors
of the Batchelor Resort) became aware of the splendid tourist
attractions that would become increasingly accessible from
the town of Batchelor.
Bob and Robin were the first people to run tours into
Litchfield National Park from Batchelor.
Because of their intimate knowledge of the attractions
within the Park and the then relative inaccessibility of
these attractions to standard vehicles, Robin and Bob started
Litchfield Park Tours and commenced the "Waterfall
Crawl" into Litchfield Park. Encouraged by Robin and
Bob, and as the roads became more accessible, other tour
operators became attracted to the area. Once the level of
service available to Resort guests from these other operators
was adequate and the demands of the expanding Resort grew,
Litchfield Park Tours was closed after a very successful
ten years. The Resort became the logical pick up point for
the new operators and because of its active role in tourism
in the area, Batchelor Resort remains the main regional
pick up point for tour operators active in Litchfield Park.
