Absolutely beautiful natural swimming pool that stretches for ever and ever, in fact right down to the harbour of Darwin. Make sure you take mosquito repellent when going there.

Perfect for a day out with the family or friends swimming & relaxing, picnic benches and BBQ areas, always lovely and clean and well maintained, with a small kiosk for essentials, right across from a great tavern selling great family food & the wildlife park!

We visited Berry Springs to find it crowded with noisy, boisterous visitors. We were also concerned to read the warnings signposted. Be careful about swimming here.
