Stayed here in a powered site overnight. The pools are lovely and clean and the perfect temperature. The service at the cafe was great. Being from Adelaide we had never seen a toad before and this place has them in the bucket load, a true sight to see.

Neat and tidy self contained cabins. Brilliant pool/restaurant/bar area which the whole family will enjoy. Pretty central to airport and Darwin city area plus on one of the main roads that sends you out to the national parks and places like Katherine. Prices are good and staff are very helpful.

Our room was booked by friends - we shared a family bungalow. Yes it had everything we needed but the cobwebs - OMG....I'm not talking small ones - I'm talking serious ones above the television, in the corner ceiling before heading into the main bedroom and another in the other corner. Was it tired - yes. Did it serve it's...

Used Free Spirit as a Fishing Base. Accom was very good in on site cabins and access to large boat parking was appreciated. On site restaurant was a great bonus at night with good "pub type meals" that were large in portion and very tasty. Price was in line with expectations.

We had a great time at the park - my husband, 6 yo, 6mo and myself stayed a week in a family cabin and it was fantastic. Porta cot made up ready to sleep in as we walked through the door (perfect after her first flight), clean cabin with everything we needed, friendly staff, pool was great, enjoyed many meals/drinks...

As the saying goes ' first impressions count' and this was certainly displayed by the two lovely ladies at reception. The locations is perfect as it is in the middle of both north and south of Darwin. We occupied one of the family rooms and there was plenty of space to accommodate us. It was also lovely to have a...

The Free Spirit Resort is fantastic! We've had several Christmas Parties, Birthday Parties and even just casual Sunday sessions here and it's always been an enjoyable relaxed place to be. You can eat & drink around the pool and the kids have access to the pool and jumping pillow while we are there. The food is great and the drinks...

We went here for a function and stayed in a Poolside Spa Villa. There was a lot of people/noise around the pool but we couldn't hear it inside the cabin. The cabins are very very clean, there's good space between cabins, the air con worked brilliantly, the bed was comfortable, the price was great and we had our own carpark...

Probably wouldn't stay again, too far from city. Smokers and fowl language around the pools from other families. Outdoor (under cover) kitchen areas were covered with ants and cooking appliances were dirty. The cabin itself was ok, but no king bed option for family cabins. Was covered with ants one night during sleep and they were very good and gave...
