This is a true oasis, the temperature was 38c when we arrived and the spring was perfect. It's not a long way from Darwin and worth the time. It does get very busy but it's a great place.

This place is absolutely great. The water is warm so it's easy to just walk into the springs. Take a pool noodle with you and wear thongs. Hook your thongs onto the noodle so after you have floated down to the next pool, you can...More
