You won't find this in any of the tourist guides, but is definitely worth a visit while in Darwin. About 60 kms down the Stuart Highway, is a gorgeous place called Berry Springs. It is a freshwater swimming place, complete with waterfalls and beautiful clean,...More

Perhaps would have been nice if early morning, or if there was a ranger, but I didn't like the vibe of the place with drinking and swearing around kids

It was a great way to spend the day. There were a lot of other people there though. If you are not a confident swimmer it is best to take some sort of flotation device as it is deep.

A beautiful spot so close top Darwin, Would recommend this as a beautiful place to spend the day relaxing. Wide open areas to rest and a couple of pleasant swim holes.

It’s so nice here just to have a dip in the water or just a walk around and have a look. Maybe you will be able to spot a crocodile!

Great venue and easy to get around. We easily spent a whole day here and learnt new things as well. Can get busy though so we avoided school holidays.

What a gorgeous idyllic place. Visited whilst in Darwin on holiday. The pools are warm, tropical and the area is well maintained. I would recommend to anyone visiting the far north.

Berry springs is a little paradise on a hot day. There are the actual berry spring, a main pool and a lower pool. The spring is probably more suitable for younger children as the water is a little shallower than the main pool and lower...More
