This is one of my favourite places on the trip between Tennant Creek and Darwin. There is just enough infrastructure to make it accessible but not enough to draw the crowds like at Rainbow Springs. The crystal clear, warm water makes a swimming tour of the stream a must-do. I'd recommend using a pair of goggles to really appreciate the beauty of the underwater scenery. Swimming downstream is easy as you drift along in the current. Beware of tiring if you swim upstream instead of walking back, as there is nowhere to rest along the way and the current is strong.
A boardwalk with interpretive signs is there for the post-swim stroll or the non-swimmer.
It's not set up as a lunch or picnic stop, but that's not why we go to Bitter Springs. Of you prefer to enjoy unspoiled beauty without having to battle crowds of people, this is a spot to include on your itinerary.
