At last a caravan where children are treated with kindness and respect. Our Kids have enjoyed daily afternoon swims, and an activity program for kids began on our second week, due to Darwin school holidays. Big credit to the Activity Co-ordinator, Maddy. Maddy was well liked by all the children and had them engaged and happy in all activities (craft,... More

We've Stayed on this campsite for about 2 weeks. The reception changed the rules every day (first where 2cars, 3tents and 6persons on one campsite allowed, after few days only 1car, 1tent and 4persons.) With the rule, the site gets more expensive aswell. The ladies from the reception said that they had a look at our car in the night... More

Stayed here to visit with family. Cabins are clean and tidy enough, but meals at their so called restaurant are awful. Meals look cheap and nasty and taste the same. I really thought a resort would have better quality meals. I would suggest they get rid of the cook and employ a decent chef. Palmerston is not far away luckily... More

We stayed 3 nights in a Cabin while our son and fiancé had a powered site with ensuite keys. The Park is a bit out of town but therefore closer to Berri Springs and Kakadu. The good things: Lovely pool, grounds, bistro/café great value. The bad things: The Park is busy, some of the long term occupants were intrusive and... More

First of all the campsite is a nice place well kept and one of the nicer ones in Darwin. But as a backpacker the condescending attitude of all the staff at the park is appalling once they hear you are foreign their whole approach changes they are racist, rude and theifs we had our phone and laptop charges "confiscated" they...

Dear RayLynch1992 Thank for your kind words regarding our holiday park, we appreciate that you think we are one of the nicer parks in Darwin. However we have to disagree with some of your other comments – we are not racist – far from it – we welcome people from all countries including our own, we have many indigenous guests... More

I was impressed with the reception staff that greeted my upon my arrival and were able to assist me to work a long stay for my company employees. A special thanks to Talei and Faye that assisted me throughout this process. They are both exceptional employees and represent the FreeSpirit Resort in a most positive manner. I would also like...

Hassle free place to stay. Secure facility. Great for kids and families. Easy access to either Palmerston or Casuarina with a bus stop just outside. Would highly recommend if you need a long term place to stay in Darwin.
