Pay top dollars for motels in Darwin? Why would you when you have freedom of comfort choice, fresh air, great location with easy access. All meals and drinks are served with smiles 7 days a week as is the great office staff, right through to the ground staff, very friendly and most helpful. It's a pleasure to stay where you... More

We returned again this year - October 2014, (previously 10 nights in Oct/Nov 2013) and stayed 12 nights, again in a Garden Cabin. Very nice accommodation with adequate inclusions. Courteous staff throughout the Resort, from booking (months ago) to check out. Noisy neighbours on a couple of nights finally settled down, but lovely and quiet the rest of the time.... More

We were unfortunate enough to stay at another park for 2 nights, and had enough of construction noise, donga works and workers leaving at 4.30am!!! We discovered the FreeSpirit Resort, which was cheaper, cleaner, and very family orientated. It was a breath of fresh air. Even thoughtful enough to have the simple things, like ceiling fans in the ablutions blocks!!!!... More

Really a top quality experience. Powered and unpowered sites, villas and cabins for all requirements. Wonderful pool (s) and surrounds by which to enjoy a cool drink after a hot day. Good food at the restaurant, and can eat your meal by the pool. Live music by the pool was a unexpected bonus! For those using sites, the shared toilet/showers... More

We spent 4 nights on a lovely shady powered site, the reception staff were really helpful and all lovely and friendly. The pool is great and it's lovely to have a meal sitting beside it at night, although the mozzies were bad so you need some spray. Quite expensive when we were there. We were able to get a courtesy... More

From broken air conditioning, having to move rooms, boom gates that don't work, park works that are not notified to residents, & having your parking area inaccessible due to the works when they are not involved makes for a dissapointing experience. And I paid for 8 weeks inadvance...get with it!
