Not a bad place to relax but is a small drive out of darwin city so probably only suitable for those with a car etc.Nice expansive area with picnic tables etc.

Go packed prepared if you're going to go here. Take your portable bbq, fluids and good walking shoes and good bathers. Locals do swim here (although I wouldn't because crocs are everywhere and crocs walk very easily over land). There are interesting history placques on here that really only show half the story, with a majorly overlooking of what happens and continues to happen with aboriginal land.
Take sunscreen, water, mosquito spray and all your supplies because the nearest shops to here are 30 minutes away.
Nice walks to do if that's your thing.

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.
