Berry Springs Nature Park, is a great location close to Darwin where you can enjoy a refreshing swim and a BBQ. A great place to unwind after spending a day at the Territory Wildlife Park. Please check our website for access to swimming. During the wet season, October-April, the pools may be closed when swimming is considered to be unsafe.

Unfortunately for our party the Billabong was murky & closed due to the danger etc. People around the park were enjoying picnics instead or just walking through the area. Conditions were fairly limited so we pressed on to another attraction. Perhaps if you experienced a swim in the Billabong it would make the visit worthwhile.

We visited when it was quite due to the pools being closed at the end of the wet. However we had a lovely walk and saw a selection of birds. I can imagine the place gets full in the dry.

An hour south of Darwin with plenty of parking. Check that it's open before making a special trip. We stopped on the way through and there were lots of people swimming. Whilst the pools look inviting I wasn't tempted as we had more driving to do. We stopped for a picnic lunch and found a lovely shaded spot. There are... More

We all enjoyed our day, the raptor display is not to be missed. And the attendants were very willing to chat about the birds. Very glad to have the shuttle bus to catch in the heat.

We knew the Pool was shut before coming. But had a look. Very beautiful area for picnics and the water area was large. Nice spot.

Went here as part of a day out sightseeing. Lovely park setting but was disappointed the pools were closed (understandably due to possible crocodile sighting) Would recommend visiting here and wildlife park close by.

Berry Springs is absolutely beautiful. I lived in the NT for 12 years and I always visited Berry Springs it is a beautiful place for a day trip. Check the website before going as it can be closed due to high rainfall and crocodiles.
