Quiet location, beautiful shady area near the river to drop your fishing line in the water.
Close location to the Darwin River Pub, Tumbling Waters or Berry Springs if you wish to go on an outing.
Great land space if you are travelling with a group or family to set up cricket, footy or just to take the kids bikes etc.
Don was very welcoming and was there to greet us on arrival and show us the areas to set up, he made us feel right at home.

What an experience! Don is very accommodating and welcoming. He has a beautiful property: you can camp next to the creek, you can fish there, there is a beautiful mango tree (and you can pick the mangoes ). There are cattle on the property which are very happy if you bring them fruits or veggies! And the highlight was the joeys: so much cuteness! You can learn how to feed them and that's just an amazing experience. We also very appreciated being so close to Berry Springs. Don's place is beautiful and very well located! Highly recommend. Thanks so much.

Fantastic. Ideal and very private camp environment on the Darwin River. The host Don was brilliant and very accommodating, he gave us some great local knowledge. Short drive to the best swimming hole in the NT (Berry Springs). All the animals on his farm, local wildlife and many birds, really added to the charm of the place.

Great camping spot by the river, in shade all day and not too far from the facilities but separated by a line of trees. Lots of activities at the site - feeding cows & wallabies, fishing, putting in pots for yabbies (even caught a few!) and the host let us pick a bucketload of lemons from his trees and make lemonade. Tumbling Waters & Berry Springs only a short drive away.
