This pub ain't all about the beer

Self proclaimed as "A fairdinkum outback experience"Daly Waters Historic Pub is a destination not to be missed when travelling through the outback.

Just over 900 km north of Alice Springs and less than 600km south of Darwin, this iconic pub will not disappointed you if a true Aussie pub experience is what you are looking for.

Take the turn off to the pub from the Stuart Highway and you will soon find yourself in the hub of a tiny town. Daly Waters, named after the Governor of the day when it was first discovered in 1861 Sir Dominick Daly, boasts only its pub, camp grounds, basic accommodation, nearby historic international airport, small museum and souvenir shop.

What the small town of Daly Waters lacks in services it makes up for in atmosphere. Here you can set up camp for a tiny fee and soak up the outback experience. The bar is decorated with memorabilia left by past visitors and historic relics. The outdoor beer garden comes alive in the evening with a live show by local artists and a scrumptious dinner including your choice of either Beef or Barra and all you can eat salad.
