The drive back to Darwin is a leisurely one today and will include swimming, delicious food and more fishing! And you can do all three at Berry Springs, which is approximately the half way point on the journey back to the city.
Berry Springs Nature Park is popular swimming spot with three main pools and a small waterfall, perfect to cool off. The water is so clear that you can spot native fish and other aquatic life underwater if you remembered to bring your goggles. Due to the wet season rains, sometimes the Park can be closed, so ensure you check access before you get on the road.
You will be spoilt for choice for mouth-watering dishes at The Berry Springs Tavern. The award winning eatery is renowned for their creative combinations and use of local ingredients, the perfect location to stop in for a cold beer, wine or tasty cocktail!
If you are still talking about the one that got away at Crab Claw Island Resort, you have another chance for a last minute catch at Barramundi Adventures Darwin, which is based right near the Berry Springs Tavern. The land based catch and release barramundi fishing farm caters to all skill levels, and with 3000+ barramundi swimming in the ponds, you will be hard pressed not to land a big one.
Check into your hotel at Mindil Beach Casino Resort, and swim the afternoon away in their lagoon or infinity pools, sipping on cocktails and watching the storms roll in.
