Clad in corrugated iron, draped with bougainvilleas and crammed with decades of memorabilia, the pub began serving passengers arriving on the new Qantas airline in 1934 and was the first international runway and airport in Australia. As a popular watering hole along the track, the Daly Waters Pub holds a liquor licence that has been in continuous use since 1938. Located just 3 hours south of #Katherine, the pub offers a variety of accommodation ranging from budget rooms to two bedroom cabins. An extensive menu served every night during the dry season includes a range of salads, steaks, lamb, chicken, and best of all fresh local wild caught Territory barramundi and thread fin salmon.
