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.

Nice setting

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.

Berry Springs is a glorious place to swim in the dry season. The Berri Creek forms three interconnected pools, two deep and one shallow. The shallow one has a small waterfall that forms a natural spa and the other two are great for swimming. The surrounding bush includes plenty of Pandanas palms that hang down into the water and sometimes... More

Blue clear waters, warm up the top due to volcanic spring water coming into this area, take your goggles, as you ban see fish living under the pandanus palms oever hanging the water. A great place to visit, for a nice swim and BBQ.

We arrived in March, end of the 'wet season'. All of the swimming locations were roped off and it was a $1,000 fine to go 'swimming in the roped off swimming holes'. We can certainly see that in the Dry Season the Berry Springs Nature Park as some advantage to visit.

I have been a couple of times and think it makes a lovely spot for friends or family. BBQ points and a secluded little swimming hole. It is inferior to some of the Litchfield locations but it's far closer and doesn't require your whole day!

Fantastic location in the territory, only a short drive from the Darwin CBD. Beautiful spot to spend a whole day and have lunch or a picnic. Easy parknig and a short walk down to the springs. Heaps of spacious BBQ facilities and can take snacks etc down to the pools (no glass bottles though). Even when it's busy there's still... More
