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 Nature park is popular with locals, tourists and gray nomads. Everyone loves it. There are several swimming spots and a picnic bbq area. Beautifully maintained gardens and lawn and there is even a little kios. Loads of parking with plenty of room for buses and motorhomes.

Only 45 mins from Darwin. Take a picnic, and your bathers. Beautiful natural swimming holes, not to be missed. Great way to escape the heat. Crocodile free (in the dry season).

My husband, myself and our son come out to have a swim here on sunday and what a lovely spot it is. The upper pool was definitely my favorite with the little waterfall. Great the there are ladders to access the water. The toilets were clean. The walk down to the pools was lovely.

What a spot - so accessible from Darwin. We have spent many hours here - floating from pool to pool. Picnic bbq and then back to floating. Devine.

Fantastic place for a few hours to cool down and do a bit of snorkling. Plenty of fish and turtle. Its a different experience when looking into the beautiful clear water. Plenty of tables and chairs and bbqs and toilets.

This is a place that receives little publicity but boy o boy it's just wonderful - little billabongs - waterfalls and growth. You can swim there - safe to do so. People were swimming when we were there.

We spent a few hours here during our stay; we went on a weekday which was a great idea as it was still quite busy but I would imagine it to be packed on weekends. The water is crystal clear and lovely colours while being lovely and warm. Lots of picnic tables and BBQ sites to use. Definitely worth a... More

Definitely come here, and come in the morning before all the crowds come. We swam between all the swimming holes and found plenty of areas to hang out quietly. There's a good rock to jump off if you're careful, and once done there's plenty of picnic areas and some decent facilities.

The swimming pools have warm, clear water with boulders on the bottom. Bring a noodle if you want to float. There are several pools connected by the springs. It is lots of fun for all ages except the very young.

Great way for our kids to see NT as bus trip letting you on and off allows you to go as slow or fast as you like. I suggest part bus part walk to get a good feel for it
