we had a great time here. Our kids aged 9 upwards all are capable swimmers which needs to be the case to enjoy the whole experience. Great idea to pack a picnic and take food and drinks with you as the food is fairly average.

The water was lovely and warm, and the surrounds beautiful - deep blue water surrounded by luxuriant green vegetation and fish swimming in the clear waters. There are loads of nice places for a picnic.

This was ideal as an accompaniment to a trip to territory wildlife park ( don't miss it but do it before going out to any of the parks) . Great way to wash the dust off after a day viewing animals. I wouldn't travel the 110 km just to visit it. Refreshment kiosk was closed when I visited at approx... More

What a very very special place. Serene, peaceful, inviting. Parking was a bit of premium but we managed to snare a site close to the access path. Good location for families, a picnic or tranquility

This is a set of freshwater pools about an hour outside Darwin where you can go to swim and picnic. Because of the crocsin the NT you can't swim in many places. This was a lovely day. The water was warm in August and clear. They still have the croc danger signs up but as the water had lots of... More

Great spot for a picnic and swim. Easy drive from the city of Darwin. No fee to enter the park. Nice tables and chairs for eating. Small kiosk serving drinks/pies potato chips etc. Best to visit in dry season. Warm water ponds with a small waterfall at one of the pools. Water is crystal clear

Why I say that is because the water temp was a little cool but we swam anyway, it is so clear, and if you take your noodle with you you can just float around, there is one part of theology that if you sit on the rocks the little fish will come and nibble on your feet.

This is a well designed and thought out Nature Park. Every time we go to NT, we usually drop in and find our selves the last to leave. Friendly staff , always ready to help. Do not try to rush there are too many animals, fish, birds and reptiles to see. Start early and work you way slowly around. If... More

We went with friends that are now locals on a Thursday in August and absolutely loved it. Take a picnic lunch and snorkels and enjoy the angel fish. Don't go on weekends as the youngns takeover and ruin it. It's free and a great spot
