Review of Manton Dam

Manton Dam
Reviewed 16 April 2016

This is a good place to see water birds and other creatures that enjoy the water. Be careful if you go wandering around in the bush as we saw a water buffalo there that almost gave me a heart attack!

Went for a day trip and thought it would be an open area with views of the lake (should have checked here).

It's run down and only suitable for those with boats / ski's / kayak ect.

Picnic area is poor to very poor and overrun with scrub. The walkways are overgrown and the footbridge is busted.

This could be so much more than it is. Lots of potential.

It's was a fun place to be. Great place for fish and day out near Darwin.
It's recommend for a family trip and a picnic place.

Lovely day out but for the mozzies. Basic facilities more focused on water sports than picnic area. Water lilies are beautiful though

Good to visit the dam and the surrounding natural bush, South of Darwin. Pipe runs all the way to Darwin. I have seen water sports here too. Not in the catchment area though. Speedboats and water skiing.
