  • Manton used to provide all the water for Darwin. The water pipes run into Darwin alongside the highway. The walk up to the dam wall is really interesing but remember there are crocs in all waters here...  more »
  • I love this place, so quiet, so beautiful, so lack of other people. If i lived in Darwin one of the first things I'd do is buy a small boat and fish in this beautiful body of water.  more »

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our day out on the dam. Wide easy access ramp for boat trailer. Remember your binoculars to enjoy abundant bird life. Picnics spots along water edge. Take a drive to the dam wall for some interesting historical background.
  • A great family adventure, easy access to both the dam and the wall (two different access points) make sure you check them both out. Picnic areas, clean facilities and boat ramp. A beautiful spot.
