Left booking a motel room too late on a Sunday afternoon and had to find somewhere I could spend the night and find parking for a car and trailer, this was the only place I could get on to. $140 for a ensuit cabin which I thought was abit rich for just myself, especially since I wasn't going to get...

Thanks for taking the time to leave your review Dean, however, we don’t have accommodation for this price and we believe you may have confused our park with another one?? We hope to welcome you to our park on your next visit to Darwin. More

We stayed 3 weeks, in an ensuite site. The hot water was intermittent, we told staff, including the Manager, they said they were looking at it. This meant someone did just that, looked at it. The water heater was a domestic system supplying multiple ensuites. It wasn't until the last few days when they updated the water heater so we... More

Thanks for taking the time to let us know about your stay in July last year. We are sorry your stay didn't meet expectations, however, we can assure you that the hot water situation has definitely been rectified since then and our guests in park have been enjoying hot showers for many, many months! Like you we were very frustrated,... More

We have stayed here several times as we have family in the area and have always found it to be quite pleasant, always pretty quite during the wet season. The pools are great, bbq area is awesome and the whole family enjoyed the piece and quiet during our time. Great place to meet people from all over the world and... More

Hello Andrew and thanks for taking the time to review us. We're happy that you find our park pleasant and we agree with you that our pools are great! That's a good tip you've given about Berry Springs - you can never be too careful that's for sure. We really appreciate the four star review and hopefully we'll see you... More

Stayed at park for just on a week in July. Could book this park in advance as compared to the other parks close to Darwin. The distance didn't really prove to be an issue. The amenities were excellent - on suite type facility. Very clean and roomy. It was a very quiet park. I was traveling in a motor home... More

Don't stay here! We were situated in a 'villa' which was very dirty, cockroaches everywhere! The stuff was very unfriendly, but nothing in comparison with the very rude owner. Had troubles with the aircon and were treated as it was our fault, they didn't even try to fix it and left us alone in our overheated 'villa'. Do yourself a... More

Having recently stayed at this caravan park for just on 3 weeks, including some van & car storage time which I will cover later, I would throughly recommend it as a nice quiet well maintained park. Staff are excellent and reception staff, in particular, Candice & Ngaire, (pronounced as Nyree), were attentive, friendly and very helpful. The park has nice... More

The cabins with 2 bedrooms are alright. Quite clean, small kitchen, utensils, stove with oven, microwave, water cooker, fridge and a small dining table good for 3 person. We didn't turned the tv on, a flat screen, the sofa looked haggard and wouldn't like to sit on it. The floor looked clean until you walked barefoot, and you'll see that... More

Darwin is a great place and the van park is well located as a base to see things around Darwin. Staff at check in happy and helpful, this did not flow on to some of the outdoor staff. Water Park and main pool was great. The kid’s playground was often hard to get to as they had fifth wheel trailers... More

We camped with a tent for 4 nights. The toilets etc are very good and clean and I understand recently refurbished. The camp kitchen however is another story. There is one small fridge freezer for the whole site which is obviously woefully inadequate. When we arrived it was packed full. Can't believe the owners consider this to be adequate. There... More
