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.

What a beautiful spot for a picnic and refreshing dip. We ate lunch on the lawns followed by a swim. Turquoise water in rain forest surrounds

We had Berry Springs on our itinerary first up and we had to miss it as time constraints wouldn't allow altho we were lucky enough to fit them in on the end of our trip. It's very popular and simply crowded with people. We managed to swim in every one and it was lovely. We went later in the afternoon... More

Been to Darwin 3 times before and missed this. We were in the water for 3 hrs, its free and just beautiful. I snorkeled and saw some lovely fish and brilliant coloured shaped rocks all over the bottom in each of the different pools ( 4 ? ). Met some grey nomads (jealous) they are living the dream. Will be... More

Brilliant picnic spot, good swimming and plenty of amenities. Close to the Territory Wildlife Park, a great drive down the highway and close to Darwin.

Here's a gem! Hadn't planned to see it & just took a punt. The springs are warm & expansive. There's a kiosk, big picnic areas, plenty of shade and plenty of parking. It probably gets busy on weekends and on days the locals deem warm enough. For a southerner, July's plenty warm enough to swim. Can see it would be... More

Lovely beautiful green main pool area. We went on a busy long weekend, despite the carpark being full, you did not feel like a sardine because of it being spread out and there was plenty of area for people to have picnics on the grass area. Reasonable toilets. Pretty good and close.

Great spot to go to experience the natural pools We arrived early and the place did start to fill up around lunchtime Springs are lovely and warm and a great place to float around and keep cool After being disappointed at Litchfield the day before we are glad to have found Berry Springs - and much closer to Darwin

This is a lovely park, clean and well-maintained. There are tables, benches, changing facilities, recycling bins, and a little kiosk, in addition to 3 great swimming spots, which was perfect on a hot afternoon.

This was the first thing we did in the NT having flown into Darwin and in route to our first night in Litchfield. It really set us up for a cracking holiday. This place is just magic. Peaceful and shady at one end with a perfect little waterfall. Open and deep and a bit busiest at the other end. What... More
