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.

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

Great place to go hang with friends. Only an hour out of the city! Awesome water hole. Don't forget the speakers and beers (tins only)

This is a great place to take visitors to especially on a Sunday. Everyone can swim in safety, there are a range of fish you can see in the water

Live in Berry Springs, but visited for a swim, hadn't been there for many years. Enjoyed it very much, had forgotten how nice it is at the park. The facilities, even though it was a busy weekend, were relatively clean and tidy and green. The bbq facilities are a great facility.

Not far from Darwin this is a popular picnic spot and when open a swimming spot. Unfortunately crocs do close this one down occasionally, and when we visited there was no swimming allowed. Pity as the water looked cool and inviting.

It was beautiful. There was a bit of concrete which took away from nature but I found there were lots of people playing loud music and drinking which also took away from it. We didn't swim. I won't be visiting again.

Thank you for your review Kiwikyle. In relation to visitor behaviour, Rangers regularly patrol the pools and remove people behaving inappropriately, however if there are concerns about other visitors behaviour and there isn't a Ranger in attendance at the time, please do seek Ranger assistance.

"Closed due to crocodile visitor" was not what wanted to see after driving the 45 minutes to Berry Springs but it was our own fault. We should have checked. Still an amazing place and the copper colour in the bright blue water is stunning. Funny to think that my mum's great uncle Edwin Berry was Goyders surveyor whose name it... More
