We (wife, I and our small dog) spent four nights at this wonderful park whilst we explored Darwin. Coming from the south of Australia we were absolutely amazed at the beautiful surroundings of this park. It was like paradise with glorious palms, ferns and other flora.

There is lots here for kids to do- pools, play areas, bouncing cushion etc, but it was also peaceful for a big site. Had everything you'd want and more and we found the staff very welcoming as well.

Thanks for your great feedback, TraceyMark, and we're really happy you enjoyed your spacious site and kid friendly facilities.
