"Amazing weekend, the lake is beautiful for canoeing and swimming!" – Jess and Dan

The only lake resort in the Northern Territory, Lake Bennett Resort is acclaimed for its beauty. With a pristine lake shimmering in front of you, Lake Bennett believes you should make the most of it and shape your stay into whatever you want it to be - the romantic getaway, family holiday celebration or a simple return to quiet pleasures with close friends. Why not start your day with a leisurely canoe ride, get in a round of golf then a leisurely lunch by the resort pool. Maybe just lying by the pool is more your style surveying all the action in front of you. It's all up to you...

Further Afield

Start the day with an early breakfast an then set off to explore what is on offer right on our doorstep - Litchfield National Park, Adelaide River, Manton Dam.
