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.

Berry Springs is a good picnic spot and place to swim in the water holes if you are stupid enough to go in. Yes, there are frequently crocodiles in there. But that is not the only danger. Many despicable events have taken place here with children by horrible sick in the head men. They are now prisoners in jail. Parents... More

For people down south, you will just see this as a watering hole and will not see the hype around it. It's a good place to go if you want to chill out for the day with some friends, have a BBQ and a swim. There is nothing else to it really. I definitely wouldn't prioritise going here instead of...

Visited with another couple. Only the walking tracks and picnic areas were open due to it being the "wet" season. We spent a wonderful hour discovering the different walking tracks - watching the landscape change as we wandered along gravel/boardwalks/paths. The toilet facilities could be a little cleaner but a lovely spot to visit

While relaxing with a cool cider in hand it's easy to forget this is a natural pool. It is so perfect to sit in the waterfalls while the large shady trees keep the beautiful dry season sun at bay. Don't forget to explore up top behind the main waterfalls for a quite spot as well as floating down stream to... More

It's closed for wet season and no body is allowed to get in to the spring. But it's lovely to just see the spring without jumping in. It's so peaceful, love it.

The water is very clear and people seem to have so much fun swimming! It's good to drop by on the way to Wildlife territory park as they are so near to each other.

Had a great few hours here & although quite busy on the weekend still plenty of room to sit & enjoy the water. Short walk from the carparking & lots of facilities to cook & eat.

During the wet this place would be a wonderful place to get away from the oppressive heat of the build up. But once the wet has set in and there is more water to fill the creeks and this Nature Park, there is always that lurking feeling of a crocodile underneath the water. It is a scary thought. But, not... More
