I loved & enjoyed for swim or family picnic at Berry Spring Nature Park. A place for weekend away to relax or a family gathering event. Check opening times during wet season.

A 30 minute drive from Darwin on sealed road, Berry Springs offers 3 natural pools to swim in. A great escape from the humidity and heat, the park also has many picnic tables and shaded areas. Well worth the visit.

Loved the serenity at these beautiful pools. Definitely bring a pool floaty if you're wanting to lounge around for awhile. Everything was great until I saw a goanna swimming and I thought it was a crocodile. Not keen to get back swimming in the holes, but could probably be convinced on a nice day because of the great views!

Great place for a BBQ & a swim. With a number of different 'pools', makes it easy to find a quiet spot away from any loud groups that may be about. Plenty of shade and BBQ facilities, toilets, picnic tables. Not open during the wet of course, but can always check on the Parks & Wildlife website for opening information.

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
