A must visit whilst in the Top End. The water is warm at the left end (the waterfall end). A great float to be had drifting down thru the next large pool, through more narrows and into a second large pool. Don’t take valuables as your gear can be well out of your sight whilst swimming.

Just an absolute jewel for Darwin. Less than an hour out of Darwin and very easy to drive too. If the car park is full then it is very busy, but very much a wonderful experience. The water is warm, the dragonflies are spectacular and the water is crystal clear! A must for anyone visiting Darwin.

Drove out to the springs from Darwin. Easy to get to. The car park was full so we had trouble finding a space. It does say to come back later if the car park is full. However, we found a spot and walked down to the springs. There are several different pools so it wasn't as busy as it appeared to be with all the cars. We stayed in to top pool that has a little waterfall. Which was good for a massage. There is a current that takes you down to the other pools but it isn't very strong. We stayed at the waterfall pool so cannot comment on the other pools. There is a kiosk which hires noodles if you need them. Well worth the visit. Even a day trip with a picnic would be good.

We loved visiting the springs and just floating around for a few hours in the warm water. You can float from the waterfall to the lower springs if you want to. Lots of people were using pool noodles. You can also buy or hire them from the kiosk which is open from 11pm until 3pm. There are metal stairs to help you getting in and out of the water.

You have to visit this spot for a swim and a picnic, it's a tropical oasis. It's about 25 minutes south of Darwin. The natural water pools are amazing, clear fresh water. There are large shaded and leafy park grounds for a BBQ or Picnic. You can easily spend a day here, and drop into the Berry Spring Tavern for a refreshment.

Easy to find, lots of people as close to Darwin but well worth going. Don't forget your noodle so you can float around for a while, they do sell them at the cafe at the springs and not expensive.

Fantastic place to relax and float in the clear water. There's toilets, bbq's, picnic tables and lots of lawn there. Easy walk down to the three pools with steps intro the water. Gets really busy on the weekends and is FREE.
