Used Free Spirit as a Fishing Base. Accom was very good in on site cabins and access to large boat parking was appreciated. On site restaurant was a great bonus at night with good "pub type meals" that were large in portion and very tasty. Price was in line with expectations.

We had a great time at the park - my husband, 6 yo, 6mo and myself stayed a week in a family cabin and it was fantastic. Porta cot made up ready to sleep in as we walked through the door (perfect after her first flight), clean cabin with everything we needed, friendly staff, pool was great, enjoyed many meals/drinks...

As the saying goes ' first impressions count' and this was certainly displayed by the two lovely ladies at reception. The locations is perfect as it is in the middle of both north and south of Darwin. We occupied one of the family rooms and there was plenty of space to accommodate us. It was also lovely to have a...

Good food, helpful staff - Very quick to respond to our needs (iron - Marcus) and Shannon look to be a hit with the kids on the weekend! Front office staff made it easy and were very helpful when i needed an extra week (and lunch) it was not a problem. Enjoyed my 3 week stay with FreeSpirit!

The Free Spirit Resort is fantastic! We've had several Christmas Parties, Birthday Parties and even just casual Sunday sessions here and it's always been an enjoyable relaxed place to be. You can eat & drink around the pool and the kids have access to the pool and jumping pillow while we are there. The food is great and the drinks...

We went here for a function and stayed in a Poolside Spa Villa. There was a lot of people/noise around the pool but we couldn't hear it inside the cabin. The cabins are very very clean, there's good space between cabins, the air con worked brilliantly, the bed was comfortable, the price was great and we had our own carpark...

Probably wouldn't stay again, too far from city. Smokers and fowl language around the pools from other families. Outdoor (under cover) kitchen areas were covered with ants and cooking appliances were dirty. The cabin itself was ok, but no king bed option for family cabins. Was covered with ants one night during sleep and they were very good and gave...

We stayed in our caravan here in September. There is a few pools so if the main one is busy try another. Nice park that caters to adults and children. Main pool is where the restaurant is so you can eat and drink by the pool but no BYO food or drink. We didn't eat at the restaurant due to...

6 nights stay this time - this Resort is our 'staple' for visits to Darwin, usually annually. The variety of cabins available is second to none - we have always found them very clean (a nice change from many other parks), well equipped and easy to access. The location is great for us (with families to visit in both Darwin...
