    Well worth a relaxing visit
    Lots of parking and easy walk too the pool areas. Plenty of shady bbq facilities and an on-site kiosk. This place gets busy weekends as it is so close to Darwin so get in early. Nice Luke warm temperature with easy floating around. Lots of steps for ease of access to the pools. Well worth a visit. Plenty of large fish to see if you have goggles and a snorkel. Otherwise just float away.

    28deg fresh water spring an absolute must
    Set in beautiful natural surrounds this fresh water spring is divine. Approx 28deg water is so refreshing you could spend all day here. Grab a pool noodle to relax for extended swim time. An absolute must if in Darwin.

    Beautiful picnic area and, swimming spot
    Stopped at Berry springs on way back to Darwin. This is a beautiful spot. Nice picnic area and great place for swimming. We were lucky no one else was there as we got there early for a swim. Definately worth a visit

    We visited twice while we were here
    We love this place. Yes it can get crowed especially in the top pool. Do yourself a favour and walk to the bottom pool and work your way up. Then drift slowly back down. The car park does overflow down the road but you’ll find a park. Bring a noodle and just enjoy and float around.

    A refreshing haven at Darwin doorstep.
    These natural freshwater pools are so close to the city there is no reason not to go. Take with you or hire some flotation devices such as noodles and just relax in the fresh clean water. Ample picnic facilities for a great day. No Ranger or lifeguard on duty so I'd suggest an ability to swim is important. Also no control on those who wish to blast loud music in what should be a nature experience. Shame on them. There is a small Kiosk run by a lovely friendly lady, but food options are limited. Would also recommend a refreshing adult beverage at the Berry Springs tavern before heading home. Friendly staff and their own small zoo out the back for the kids.

    Berry Falls- float the time away- RELAX!!!
    Nice mid morning float around big pool. Water perfect temperature and surrounds couldn't be better. Make sure you take a noodle to float the time away. You can buy and hire one if you forget your own. Dragonflies of brilliant blue and red hover across top of water and are more than happy to catch a ride on you too- perfect. Small pool lovely too. Don't miss this opportunity to float and relax for a few hours.

    Great place to cool off not far out of Darwin
    Refreshing fresh water springs about 60km from Darwin city. Take your bathers, towel, goggles, thongs and a picnic lunch. A very pleasant spot to while away a few pleasant hours. Toilets available and sometomes a kiosk will be open selling locally made ice creams. Highly recommended

    A worthy stop
    A nice springs and easy to access. There is a big step at the bottom but I think you could find a way around it. You can float from one pool to another. We were standing under the water fall where there were draughts of hot and then cold water. There are lovely picnic areas with tables and a kiosk where you can purchase simple food items.

Visited at the end of the wet season and the springs were closed to swimming as the water level was high and it was defiantly rushing water. Still lovely to visit!!

This place is truly marvellous and a MUST see if you’re in the Territory / be aware it does get quite congested and busy with tourists but it is absolutely stunning, photos do not do this place justice - tucked away in the little township of Berry Springs - about 35mins from Darwin CBD itself - it is AMAZING

It’s hard to capture the magic of this place in words. The reserve is a lovely place to have a picnic and the springs are just lovely.. I didn’t want to get out of the water it was just magical floating around in nature.

Wow what a beautiful swimming spot!
I loved this place, the water was clear and refreshing and there were plenty of shallow areas for kids and really deep spots too.
The surrounding park was lovely, plenty of picnic tables and shady spots, bathrooms and amenities.
The perfect place for a picnic and swim to escape the heat.
If you're in the area do yourself a favour and check it out ❤

The water coming from the waterfall was lovely and warm. We swam at the waterfall and towards the main pool. The creek to the main pool does have submerged rocks in it so if you’re not floating beware of hitting your knees or toes. We also swam in the lower pool, which was deeper freer of obstacles.

I would suggest getting a noodle at the kiosk as it helps you float and avoid hidden rocks
