Jul 17, 2016 - Tennant Creek to Daly Waters

Up the Centre 16.7.16 Tennant Creek Today just cooked some soup to have for lunches along the way, then went through cupboards to make sure we have basic food items, as not sure what we will be able to get at some of the places we are going to. Sure we will survive. 17. 7.16 Tennant Creek to Daly Waters 406km Forgot to mention, in the Northern Territory a lot of the highway is open speed, today the speed signs said 130kph. No we haven't tried to see what we could do. Actually we haven't seen any driver doing anything other than normal...

Jun 17, 2016 - Friday 17th June Daly Waters

Daly waters pub We were going to go for a walk this morning after breakfast, Mal said we'll go and park the bus in the day area, as we were pulling out from the caravan park a voice came over the CB Radio saying that they were going over a speed hump and their caravan came off the hitch. Mal looked over to me and said they must be just out of the park we'll go and see if they want help, he was right the lust speed hump you could see the scrape marks on the road, looking ahead here they were pulled over and very disarrayed at the sight of...

2016 holiday

May 24, 2016 - Banka Banka Station to Daly Waters

Ian and I watched the mass exodus out of the campgrounds at Banka Banka before packing up ourselves. We have decided we are on a different time clock to everyone else! It seems most people have gone to bed in the camps or caravan parks by about 8pm and are on the road again by 8am! We seem to be on a 10am/10 pm cycle. However, we all seem to meet up again at the next stop! Anyway, it was another day of driving on pretty well flat, long straight roads with not much to see other than some variations in the vegetation from short and scrubby to...

Apr 29, 2016 - Tennant Creek to Daly Waters Pub - April 29 & 30

Friday April 29 to Saturday April 30 Tennant Creek to Daly Waters Pub Friday Denis found some new Italian friends this morning on his way to the shower – they are cycling around the world (some people just have too much time on their hands!). They did the Pyrenees, parts of India, through Indonesia and arte now tackling a fair chunk of Australia, after which they have their sights set on South America – I think they must be just good friends, as sex on a red desert sand dune is not very appealing! Sometimes out here you just have to do the...

Tardis Travels 2016

Sep 29, 2014 - Daly Waters

Our navigation this morning said turn left in 540klms. It's a big country. We called into Daly waters. It's a very small place but the pub and caravan park is iconic. There are all sorts of things hanging around plus a bush stage and a bower to sit under. We decided to stay for their beef and barra dinner and stay overnight. The pool is cold and very refreshing. The beef and barra dinner was great. Accompanied with salad. This has been a lovely stay here.

Jan 4, 2014 - New Years Eve at the Daly Waters Pub

We made it to the Daly Waters Pub for New Years Eve. We did a bit of photo swapping and then started our glam up for the party. The theme was Fluro/neon. We all looked pretty spectacular. We had a nice meal and a fun night. We mainly played cards while the young ones partied on. At midnight there was a fantastic fireworks display. There were people there from Darwin, Katherine and Elliot. They certainly travel a long way for a party, but not as long as us!

Dec 14, 2013 - Daly Waters

Dec 14 Saturday Today we left Litchfield and travelled to Adelaide River, where we decided to take the scenic route, and visit Robin Falls, this was a good camping area, no problems getting the van in. We completed the 300 meter?? walk to the Falls but we didn't do the last little climb over the rocks to go into the pool even though it looked inviting. After returning to the van and continuing on this narrow, roughish sealed rough, we hit Stuart Hwy at Hayes Creek Roadhouse and heading into Katherine, did a bit of a shop and checked with...

Nov 4, 2013 - Darwin to Daly Waters

We made our way back to Katherine in no time and went to Woolies to stock up on supplies for the next few days. I had to go to the toilet while we were there and I couldn't believe I had to pay $1 to enter the toilets! I thought the guy was joking! We were also hoping to grab a couple of bottles of scotch but discovered the bottle shops don't open til 2pm, so we jumped back in the car and headed east. I'd heard a few good things about the Mataranka thermal swimming holes so I was excited to go there and have a swim. We went to the first one...

Sep 6, 2013 - Daly Waters

06/09, 07/09,08/09 Stayed at Daly Waters overnight but we stayed at the Hi-Way Inn caravan park instead as we thought being Friday night it will get rowdy at the pub. The management gave us a voucher for a free beer and wine at sundown, which was very nice we also decided to stay for tea and since we can’t catch Barra, we decided to order it instead and it was beautiful. In the afternoon we called over at the iconic Daly Waters pub to have a beer and check it out. It is everything people have been saying about it. Quirky, unusual and a must...

Aug 22, 2013 - Darwin Disaster

We arrived in Darwin from Kakadu with a couple of stops along the way at West Aligator River (I think) and a servo that had a few animals. The buffalo sucked my fingers like a poddy calf. Our accommodation left a lot to be desired. We stayed on Mitchell Street the nightlife hot spot, above a nightclub that played dus dus music till all hours, until it ended in a fight. We went on a double decker bus tour around to see the sights. We visited the Defence of Darwin Military museum. It was amazing with interactive displays. So 22nd century....

Aug 16, 2013 - Daly Waters - Oh what a night!

We said Goodbye to Aleysha in Tennant Creek and we were on the road again heading for Daly Waters. The Daly Waters pub is the oldest in the NT. It is a tin shack in the middle of nowhere, where hundreds of travellers come together every day - campers and vanies and cabin dwellers like us come from miles around to see this iconic tin shack. Each night they cook barra and beef on the Barbie, the best I've had in a long while. The crowd are entertained by musicians and comedians, certainly not what I was expecting. If you are after doudy...

Jul 30, 2013 - Daly Waters

(Ben) Daly Waters is not far up the highway from Newcastle Waters and so even after spending an hour looking around the ghost town of Newcastle Waters, we still got into Daly Waters before midday. Apart from the pub, with attached caravan park, there really isn't much current action happening in Daly Waters. Like a lot of these places it has some interesting and unusual (white) history. Daly Waters seems very proud of the fact that it was Australia's first international airport - it was a re-fuelling stop for QANTAS international flights...
