“Awesome spot”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

We loved the douglas hot springs. Best hot springs in NT I reckon. The water is seriously hot in some spots so watch your step. Camp sites are pretty standard with a couple of toilets in the camp area. Would gladly go back

“Hot Springs”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

The Douglas Hot Springs were a bit if a surprise. It was very hot the day we visited and a 2 hour drive from Darwin, the final few kilometres on dirt road. At the time of our visit there were quite a few campers. The waters were cool until you came to a spot where the hot springs bubbled into the waterway. Very relaxing swim.

“A natural wonder”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

It's a unique experience, out in nature relaxing in hot springs. It's about a 2 hour drive from Darwin city. During the dry season there's a 4-wheel drive track to Butterfly Gorge which is also worth the trip.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Great spot to enjoy swimming in the hot spriongs and lazing around having a BBQ. There are bungalows for rent nearby - a good spot for a relaxing week end.

“HOT. HOT.”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

With these Springs you can pick your temperature by simply moving up or down stream.
Not a lot of water when we were there.
