Tropical Paradise
If your looking for a small piece of tropical paradise this is it! This site is set within the natural surrounds of the property with abundant wildlife, shade throughout the day and a great pool to cool down. Kristy, Clint and the extended family are fantastic hosts and are very accomodating. Very safe and secure site for all your possessions. Will definitely be coming back! Highly recommended

We loved our stay at Howard Springs Haven. It was a very peaceful and relaxing setting amongst tropical trees. Clint was very friendly and helpful, especially helping us maneuver our van into and out of the site. We would definitely recommend this Hipcamp.

Site 1 - Howard Springs Haven
We had a wonderful time, Clint and Kirsty were so accommodating. We had the two sites booked but managed to put three vans on site one with power and water. We visited every site in Darwin, both day and night and loved “coming home “. We swam in the pool many times and there are lots of great shopping centres close by. A great place to stay for your Darwin visit

Howard Springs Haven
Such a quiet and peaceful camp, Clint & Kristy have put a lot of thought into ensuring every need is catered for. Site 1 has so much room for the kids to play around, a fire pit, green grass, power & water; and the hosts were absolutely lovely offering up their pool, BBQ area and local knowledge. We’d have no hesitation recommending this HipCamp for anyone exploring the Darwin/Litchfield area.
