Dear Willspark79 Thank you for your review. We are disappointed to read that your stay with us was not an enjoyable one.

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...

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.

Well recommended. We stayed in a two BR Cabin. The only problem was they forgot to service the cabin after 7 days. the pool was great, bed was cold, meals adequate. To many park external guests at weekends made it difficult for par residents to access pool and bar area

We have stayed many times at this park and it's great for kids and parents. Facilities are super and the pool is clean. Food always good and cabins generally in good clean condition. We'll run, organised park that is a credit to the management.

I stayed at the Darwin Freespirit for 3 days in a cabin. Everything was easy and enjoyable. I checked in early in the morning, reception opens at 7.30am. If you check in any earlier they have it set up so you can access your keys when you get there. The cabin I stayed in was set up well. The room... More

Lovely spacious park, friendly staff - all smile. Plenty of pools to choose from. Amenities very good and spotless. Have been on road for 7 months and this park was one of the best we have stayed in - a real oasis after travelling up through middle of Oz.

The facilities here couldn't be faulted. The bathrooms were clean, the cooking facilities were generous & well maintained. We didn't use the laundry facilities but they also looked great. The pool was gorgeous. The staff were friendly & helpful. We were staying in a campervan with grandparents and kids & we were all very happy with the stay.

This is my favourite place to stay. The location may appear to be far from some places, but I think it is situated with easy access to the city, casuarina, Palmerston and major industrial areas. The accommodation suits singles, couples and families with exceptional cabins with various sizes. I love the gardens and pool. If this wasn't here in darwin,... More
