Berry Springs Nature Park

National Parks and Reserves Natural Attractions Parks and Gardens

Berry Springs Nature Park is a picturesque area 47 kilometres south of Darwin that is a popular daytrip destination for picnics, with shady areas with tables and barbecues. Work up an appetite for lunch with a swim or a bushwalk.

Cool off in one of Berry Creek’s clear and shady pools, and if you’ve brought your goggles along, you should be able to spot native fish and other aquatic life. Or explore the area on foot – the looped walking track takes you through monsoon forest and woodlands. It starts from the picnic area – don’t forget your binoculars if you are keen on birdwatching. Visit the Park during March and April to see the native plants in flower and grasslands at their best.

During World War II, Berry Springs was part of a rest and recreation camp set up by the armed forces for the 100,000 personnel based in the area. A number of huts and weirs were built at Berry Springs during this time, and you can still see the remains around the main pool.
