Owner description: Berry Springs Nature Park, is a great location close to Darwin where you can enjoy a refreshing swim and a BBQ. A great place to unwind after spending a day at the Territory Wildlife Park. Please check our website for access to swimming. During the wet season, October-April, the pools may be closed when swimming is considered to be unsafe.

This is a great place to day trip and cool down about an hour from Darwin.
Berry Springs is a Pandanus lined swimming hole not far from Darwin. It is one of the few places you can safely swim that isn't a hotel pool. The archer fish there are amazing and they swim around you in the crystal clear water. A great place to spend a few hours.
Just up the road is the Berry Springs tavern that has some of the best pub food I have ever eaten.
Try the threadfin and chips you wont be disappointed.

This is a true oasis, the temperature was 38c when we arrived and the spring was perfect. It's not a long way from Darwin and worth the time. It does get very busy but it's a great place.

Berry Springs is a hot spring with various pools you can swim and float in. Start at the warmest - at the top, where there is a waterfall to massage your shoulders or go behind it to hide from everyone. Float down the spring (better to bring noodles or pool floats, underneath beautiful greenery to the second pool. Spend hours here swimming and talking to people and then float down to the final pool, where you can jump off trees or use the rope to swing into the water. Areas for lunch and a small kiosk. Just don't float further down stream because there may be the rogue freshie - though they don't bother you if you don't bother them.

We went two days in a row as we enjoyed it so much. It is not just the springs. There are lots of BBQ's and seating for picnics etc Noodles are a necessity to float around and enjoy the scenery and serenity. There are three different pools. We chose the third as it was the deepest and not as busy. Best of all it is free There is also a small kiosk to get drinks or ice creams.
