Fabulous

Most relaxing day we spent in Darwin. Not overcrowded like alot of other places. Just loved it. Had not planned to go but went past a sign and thought why not. Best decision we made.

Relax and unwind
Aug 2021 • Couples
If you need to relax and unwind this is the perfect place to visit. Beautiful warm water, just float down the stream with your pool noodles and feel the tension of long hours in the car melt away. Green grassy places to have a picnic, toilets and kiosk also available. Brilliant place.

What a beautiful surprise
Jun 2021
Berry Springs was on my to do list but wasnt prepared for the beauty of the place including the gorgeous picnic grounds.I dont think it matters what day you go there as it is always packed with people and their noodles.Emerald green water and really easy to get in and out of all the sections of the pool.Easily accessible to all fitness levels.Really gorgeous and not to be missed whilst in the top End

Amazing place to swim
Jun 2021 • Family
Firstly I’ll say the walking trails aren’t much, I was expecting more tracks and places to explore its pretty much a 3 min walk to the pools and that’s it for walking! There is a small outlet for drinks, ice creams and pool noddles! (Pool noddles are a must here!) The springs themselves though are amazing and we spent hours there! The area is divided into three which are all connected, the upper pool has the small waterfall and I would say is the kids/toddler pool as it is very shallow in places and a good intro to the area. The main is bigger, deeper, has a lot more room for bags, towels etc. and more of a pool for everyone from jumping in to looking for fish this is a great place, the lower pool I would say is the chill out pool, it was quieter, less kids etc.
Worth the visit, highly recommend

Karen's waterhole

Definitely skip this place if you aren't into 100 families swimming with you. Also an extremely high number of Karen's.

Perfect for picnic & swimming, warm water
Jun 2021 • Couples
Beautiful picnic & swimming area. Water in springs warm & perfect for swimming. Take a flotation device for easy of floating in the waterholes as you can’t touch the bottom. Very popular so get there early for a good spot. There is a small shop there for snacks, drinks & hiring a pool noodle.

Wonderful experience!
Jun 2021
Really pretty conservation park with beautiful waterholes (fed by warm springs). Nice picnic areas and walking trails (if you're heat and humidity resistant!). We entered at the top waterhole and drifted down to the lower (third) one on a day when there weren't too many people there, so it was a wonderful experience. I imagine that it can get a bit crowded, but we were there in peak holiday season, so maybe not. The waterholes are pretty big, so can accommodate a lot of people without ruining the experience, I should think. Only a 50km drive out of Darwin, and close to the Territory Wildlife Park, so I would suggest visiting both (Wildlife Park first, then relax at the Springs). A must-do if staying in Darwin.

Absolutely beautiful
Jun 2021
We arrived on a Sunday around 8am and we had the place to ourselves. Expecting the water to be cool at that time, it was warm and beautiful. You can sit under the small waterfall or float down to the other 2 open areas further along. Water is crystal clear that you can see the bottom and the fish. Easy access to the swimming areas including concrete steps/paths and ladders into the water. Bring a pool noodle to make it even more relaxing. Plenty of grassed areas for picnics, sheltered with trees, a toilet block and cafe. Good parking area within close proximity and short easy walk to the water. A few stairs heading down to the water. Take mosquito repellent. My favourite springs that I visited.
