Visited Manton dam recreational area as I heard it was good for a picnic & swim. I agreed it's a nice picnic location, but doubt for a swim as its not safe enough. There was a tiny piece of paper hang outside the gate of dam indicating there was a Saltie croc. Not the best way to give caution sign.

If you want to take some beautiful Photography this is the place to be. It's a nice place to relax! There is a lot of Birdlife happening. It's a nice place to have a BBQ but you have to bring everything your self as there is no Shops there.

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.
