A legend in the Territory

Only 23 kilometers south of Darwin and right on the doorstep of the Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks, Howard Springs Tavern is one of the region’s favourite spots. The whole family can enjoy the great atmosphere of our Bistro for lunch from 12 til’ 2, or dinner from 6 til’ 8:30. Our relaxing beer garden is also on offer so you can enjoy an ice cold drink or bar snacks outdoors. Our value-for money meals are famous in the region and there’s a playground to keep the kids happy. Our Sports bar caters for all tastes in sport, and features two extra large screens so you can see all the action. We also have full TAB facilities, plus Keno and pokies, so sports fans are well catered for.

We love a great meal.

As much as we love a good laugh, food is no laughing matter at the Howdy. Fresh ingredients and a genuine quality meal are a big part of what makes the Howard Springs Tavern such a great destination.

Real people
and good times.

A genuine, friendly pub environment. The Howdy is all about good times and keeping it real. Real friends, real food and more than a few laughs. It’s just down the track, come on an adventure.
