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.

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

The grounds and facilities are well maintained - water beautifully clear and pleasantly warm. We paddled up to the 'waterfall' and floated back down to the bottom pool. The kids enjoyed trying to catch the little fish (with their hands) that swim around you and nibble your toes! We were surprised that it wasn't crowded; plenty of room to spread... More

A must see not far from Darwin. Beautiful springs to swim in that have varied temperatures, waterfalls and picnic areas. Lovely Mango farm/eatery about 2km from it that is a must to visit also.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Berry Springs. The water was so warm, about 30 degrees. Plenty of area there to have lunch and a quiet sit in the shade. A highlight for us during our three week stay in Darwin!

Great shady trees, green grass, swimming holes and small warm spring fed cascade. Good steps into the water which is crystal clear. Small shop for pies, coffee etc or take your own picnic. Safe for children and remember your goggles to see the small fish.
