Tjuwaliyn (Douglas) Hot Springs Park

National Parks and Reserves

The popular Tjuwaliyn (Douglas) Hot Springs Park, located approximately 130 kilometres from Katherine and 200 kilometres from Darwin. The Park protects a section of the Douglas River, where thermal pools create an oasis in the surrounding dry woodland. The water attracts a wide variety of birdlife and mammals such as bandicoots, quolls and flying foxes.

Camping is permitted and caravan access is usually possible depending on seasonal conditions. Swimming is only available in designated swimming areas of the park, but it is important to test the temperature of the water before entering. The traditional Aboriginal owners, the Wagiman people, jointly manage the Park with the Parks and Wildlife Commission, and the Wagiman women have the right to close the Park on occasion, as it is an important place for women’s ceremonies.

Coming from Darwin, you have a choice of either taking the scenic drive – the turn off is just over the bridge at Adelaide River, or you can take the turn off which is located half way between Adelaide River and Pine Creek.

Tjuwaliyn (Douglas) Hot Springs Park is CLOSED until further notice.
