Daly Waters Historic Pub
Well, if you come thinking it's an ordinary roadhouse, then you'd be as wrong as I was. Daly Waters Historic Pub
is more than just fuel and food. It is almost a small settlement in the middle of nowhere.
During the dry season, this place comes alive with people enjoying their range of 12 cold beers on tap and excellent pub grub which includes crocodile, barramundi, buffalo and kangaroo sliders. There's also the iconic Beef 'n' Barra on the BBQ nights cooked in the undercover beer garden with live music. Children can be seen playing in the playground and making friends with the resident horse, goat and other animals roaming around freely. Kevin the saltwater crocodile can be found in his enclosure too.
A historical talk is presented daily and you can visit Tim's Junk Yard Museum for a small fee. Some might say it is full of junk, but as the proverb goes, one man's trash is another man's treasure. There are a number of old cars and bikes as well as some really random things from all over the country. A KFC entry sign? Australia's most remote traffic lights?
We stayed the night after a long drive from Darwin. Different types of accommodation are on offer from cabins and motel rooms to caravanning and camping sites. Our standard motel room had one double bed and one single bed sleeping three guests rather comfortably. Although a little tinier than we'd hoped, the room was air-conditioned and came with the basic television, refrigerator and tea/coffee-making facilities.
Daly Waters Historic Pub is located at 16 Stuart Street in Daly Waters approximately three kilometres off the Stuart Highway. I'd recommend putting it on your itinerary if you're ever passing through that way. For more information and bookings, head to dalywaterspub.com
