Hadn't intended to call in here but very glad we did. What a lovely area of lots of lawn for picnics, trees for shade and ambiance and several pool areas with steps down to the water. Fresh water safe to swim in and tepid but still cooling. Great facility for the area

Even though it was difficult to find a park, don't let that put you off. The grounds a so large that people have plenty of room to spread out on the lawn area.. There are several swimming areas even though the small water fall area was busy. BBQ's, tables are available or bring your own. This is great place to... More

getting there wasn't to bad, but be warned the park is huge. There are multiple pools to hang around, and deep enough that you can just dive in and do a cannon ball.

Crikey - give yourself a time limit here - or you'll be stuck here all day. Beautiful gardens/lawns/open space with BBQ's. Lovely warm water and falls. Great for a dip in the dry season. Would send anyone travelling in NT to this spot - and it's so close!

Easy parking, well signposted and good access to warm water. Picked a very busy time (School holiday weekend) but still plenty of swimming space. Rocks in shallow places a bit of a nuisance.

Take your noodle and a picnic. Short drive from Darwin. Very relaxing pools to float around in. Water temp very ambient as helped by warm springs and plenty of space

We almost missed this on our trip to Australia what a shame that would have been. Beautiful spot to swim and cool down from the heat. So easy to park and just a short walk to two main pools. Bring a picnic for a very enjoyable day.

Berry Springs is a bit of a drive from Darwin, but worth it as a great swimming spot free from crocs. Also very pleasant for a picnic, and good to combine with a trip to the territory Wildlife Park which is just a short drive up the road.

Berry Springs is a beautiful place for a swim and a picnic. Great area to settle down for a day escaping the heat with BBQ facilities available. The springs are idyllic - the water temperature just right and sooooo blue! Not as crowded as Litchfield as not as widely promoted!Worth a visit.
