Came after a day at the Wildlife Park next door. Not packed but still very popular later in the afternoon. Lovely water and a nice break before the drive back to Darwin.

We drove the 45 minute trip from Darwin to Berry Springs. It was a delight to be able to easily enter the water and swim around the waterholes. Even though there were lots of tourists, like us, we didn't feel 'squashed in'. It was peaceful.
