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.

Scenic with shady picnic areas. A little kiosk which opens at 11am. Beautiful natural pools to swim in, including a lovely little waterfall. In a perfect world the car park would be slightly closer to the pools and have more shade. An easy shortish drive out from Darwin. Opens at 8 am. Get there early.

You know you are somewhere special when you walk down the stairs and see the beautiful waterfall flowing into the pool, virtually in the middle of nowhere. Such a good little oasis to escape to, and so close to Darwin city! Something really unique to Norhern Australia, a good place to show off to visitors.

We liked Berry Springs more than Litchfield. Swimming in the river is a joy and so is lounging in the warm pools or lazing on the rocks in the river. There is a kiosk that serves up drinks and change and shower facilities. A perfectly lovely spot for the family.

A large parkland featuring natural springs and waterways. Shady bush walks, tumbling waterfalls and large swimming holes to enjoy on a hot day. Basic facilities and minor works done to help getting in and out of the water. Grassy lawns, picnic tables and local flora and fauna abound. Small kiosk operates daily supplying a limited choice of sandwiches, pies drinks... More

With close proximity to Darwin if can get crowded. The top pool has a small warm waterfall that flows into it. Perfect for a natural spa treatment without the cost. Lower pools are large and a spectacular south pacific turquoise blue colour. Keep in mind access to the top pool is by a set of steps and the lower pools... More
