This was the last stop of our tour. It was good we didn't need to walk a long distance to reach the springs. It was not as impressive as previous water holes but we enjoyed a swim and checked out the fish in the springs.

We have been here a few times on our trip around Australia. Beautiful spot to swim, can be busy on the weekends. Best spot is the top pool with the waterfall, you can swim further down to the other 2 pools. Just be croc aware as they have recently had some salties in here!

Over crowded- when we went, there were a mob of local fellas walking around the carpark looking for trouble. We didn't feel comfortable leaving our car, which had a boat full of camping equipment. Lots of young teens from Darwin enjoying their weekend but we prefer more quieter swimming holes ;)

On a hot day, hire a car and go. Pack a lunch, take some googles and the kids. Not a lot of parking, no glass bottles alowed, understandably. So refreshing.

Great day out at the Springs. Lovely clear warm water, easy access climb down stairs. Only half an hour out of Darwin and a lovely day or 1/2 day of free entertainment.

I absolutely love swimming here so when I get time off I love coming here for a swim to chill and relax, it's so nice to bring family and have a swim in the water and good location for a day out and about. Defiantly need to try and get out here more because it's just so beautiful.

A beautiful spot and well worth the visit, fantastic place to cool off and relax. Not too far out of Darwin.

The closest, most accessible water hole for swimming outside of Darwin. A good stop enroute to Litchfield. A great place for a BBQ.

One of the delights...about an hour from Darwin and a short drive to the Litchfield Pub for lunch or dinner!

... But there is still room! Bring extra towels to sit on, plenty of food, drinks, water and loo paper. You can picnic and play on the lawns or set up down near the water. Leave the valuables at home though - there's no security here. The third pool has a rope swing if you're brave.
