Travelled the area for a few days late last year.Because the water is very shallow the water is to hot to really enjoy. Mataranka hot springs a far better to look at and swim in but a further distance from darwin.
A great day out exploring. The hot springs are very hot in some places . A great place to bring visitors, for a day trip or camping. Facilities are clean but bring all your necessities as there are no shops near by
Follow the signs and don't be put off by the dirt road, its fine to use even if not in a 4 WD. Great camping area plenty of fire pits, loads of parking, clean toilet facilities.

This is a great spot for kids as the river is quite shallow. Swim in the section that suits your temperature preference. The camp area is quite good with shower and toilet BUT we were there at the end of a long weekend and the amenities were pushed WAY beyond capacity. We had planned to be there for 2 nights... 更多
