Berry Springs is one of my favourite swimming holes in the Top End, and a must for visitors, natural flowing springs with varying depths for all ages, jump on your airbed and float around and relax and soak in the tropical surrounds or swim through to the next pool. There are barbeque facilities, so grab some snags and bread on... More

good spot to get out of town and have a picnic or BBQ, water is fresh and good for a swim although pick the correct time of year as you cannot swim all year round. A lot of shade also to avoid the sun

Family orientated fun. You can easily spend the day here!! Make sure to bring the suncream and plenty of water. Even though the train is available there is still some nice walks

Easy drive from the city. Great place to cool off and relax after a full day of sightseeing. Easy parking lots of space for all. Take along a picnic and find a quiet spot under the wonderful canopy of trees.

We travelled all the way from Brisbane and there was no notification that the springs were closed. We couldn't even walk along the water to get pictures. Very upset

An excellent family outing with plenty of parking and a large shaded area for picnics and barbeques. Swimming is excellent at the central area, although there is a lower level which can be used. A waterfall at the top level provides an opportunity to cool off for the more adventurous. There is a small kiosk there which opens during the... More

We went during the week and in the morning - hardly anyone else there. As we were leaving the numbers were increasing and I can imagine that during the peak it would get very crowded. Springs are lovely for a swim and the grounds well laid out and serviced - ideal for a BBQ. This is definitely worth a visit... More

Berry Springs is a must see! The water is beautiful and warm and the forest and park surrounds are gorgeous and perfect for a days escape! Theres areas to set up on the grass for a picnic and several different swimming areas! It was just so beautiful here, I wanted to stay forever!

Beautiful spot with the falls and swimming spots. I see people have said very crowded, but when we went hardly any one there. But was during the week. A Lovely spot to stay. Not as good as Litchfield Park but still worth a visit and swim
