As heard from others, thought of going there for a picnic. But we were wrong, the place is privately managed and only people staying allowed for picnic or leisure activities. So, not recommend if you only seeking for a picnic. The drive is ok from Darwin and took nearly 1 hour.

The website makes this resort look so classy. The natural surrounds are indeed beautiful but as previous reviews have stated- very poor management. It was $20 to hire a BBQ so we ate at the restaurant. A few options on the simple menu which is fine but $20 for a parmigiana and it was tiny, over cooked and served with... More

Surely is a hidden gem in the territory. Such a lovely spot for a get away. Room was nice right on the lake with a gorgeous view of the lake. You can hire canoes and have a swim. The restaurant how ever could be much better. Very average meals. This place has so much potential it's not funny. Even with... More

Beautiful location right on the lake the resort has endless possibilities but it is poorly managed everything is old and dirty. The restaurant and bar were not appealing. What a shame the golf course and driving range are so run down they are not useable. In the end I suppose you get what you pay for, have paid less and... More

This place has potential but needs a lot of improving to be satisfactory. We had 2 rooms booked by our guide. First impression was lovely lake view and friendly management. First impression of room was boiling hot and had an awful smell. It was a hot day when we arrived but the air conditioner was not turned on prior to... More

We visited the butterfly farm and decided to stay here whilst out of town and then visit the Wildlife park, what a great plan because the stay at Lake Bennett resort was just what we needed. It was so relaxing and peaceful. We stayed during the week and there was no one around. The room is all you need and... More

Beautiful spot but not worth the money or trip! Manager was extremely rude and condescending and horrible to deal with. Dirty, musty and water was undrinkable with no bottled water as marked. Place needs to be run properly or it won't exist is another year!

Had been planning for a few weeks to visit Lake Bennett despite the comments about the Sand flies. I heard there were Barramundi in the lake and you could hire canoes for day visit. So I drove from Darwin and arrived at Lake Bennett about 9am. I went to reception and enquirer about day use and was advised I could... More

We stayed 3 nights in a standard queen room which had everything we needed for our stay (but don't expect daily housekeeping) and at $110 per night it was good value. The lake at sunset is beautifully serene and well worth a few photos. The restaurant food quality and staff service were both impressive. It is only a 20 minute... More
