Berry Springs, a half-hour drive south of Darwin, has a general store, petrol station and camping and caravan facilities. The small settlement is most often visited by those wanting to explore the Territory Wildlife Park and the Berry Springs Nature Reserve. The Reserve protects a large part of the Berry Creek catchment. Berry Creek begins as a series of springs, forms a small creek then reaches Darwin Harbour through a mangrove lined estuary. The park is an attractive area close to Darwin for recreational activities. Enjoy a refreshing swim, relax in a cascading rock pool or sit down to a picnic lunch on the idyllic shore. If you swim with goggles you can see many small native fish and other aquatic life that live in the clear pools. The world acclaimed Territory Wildlife Park, nestled in 400 hectares of natural bushland, showcases the wildlife of northern Australia, which you can see up close and in their natural habitats.
