Howard Springs Nature Park

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

Howard Springs Nature Park has been a recreational venue for the people of Darwin since World War II.

Its diverse habitats include monsoon forests and extensive woodlands, providing a valuable wildlife habitat.

Bring your hamper and find a shady spot, where you'll be able to picnic with ibis and agile wallabies on the lawns near the main pool. Along the 1.8 kilometre walking track you will learn about some of the many and varied plants and animals of the area. Or follow the short track into the dense rainforest to see the springs that feed the main pool. An all season wading pool has been constructed and affords a great opportunity for kids to cool down after playing in the adventure playground.

Signs on the walkway will help you identify some of the fish, including barramundi, which can be seen from the weir wall.

During World War II, rest and recreation camps for up to 120 men were set up for Australian and American servicemen. The weir was built in 1944 by the Royal Australian Engineers to improve access to the waterhole.
