Located 600kms south of Darwin or 900kms north of Alice Springs you’ll find the ‘Daly’ offering its authentic brand of Territorian Australiana since 1930.
The Daly Waters pub is a treasure trove of historical happenings that are illustrated by the assorted paraphernalia and stories adorning the ceiling and walls.
Not sure what we mean?
We refer you to the tiers of vertically hanging ladies’ bras or the tales of shoot outs and stampeding cattle cutting a line through town in a time gone by.
Of course, the main attraction of this oasis in the heart of the country isn’t over-the-shoulder-boulder-holders, but top-notch hospitality serving frosty beers and award-winning, hearty pub grub while you park the vehicle and your bum.
True-blue, award-winning Aussie food is found here and feasting on the damper will have you feeling like a drover in no time.
Like the fauna found in the territory? Well at the Daly you can eat it too!
Locally sourced gourmet Roo loin, Crocodile sliders, Beef n’ Barra or classic schnittys & steaks will have you content and full as a goog.
If they don’t grab you there’s many a salad or seafood option before trying out your sweet tooth on the dessert menu.
If beers are your thing, you’d probably like to know the 6 varieties of suds are poured at -2 degrees and the win glasses are fuller than a billabong in wet season straight from the cellar. You’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else on the Stuart Highway that has beers this cold, let alone frosties below 0 degrees!
These are so darn popular you have to RSVP to avoid disappointment. BUT you get a free nightly musical entertainment while you chow down and recover from the dusty trail.
Stay a day or make it a few with comfortable accommodation ranging from deluxe air-conditioned and pet friendly cabins with all the fixings, to budget pub rooms or just a spot to unpack the swag in the campground.

“From the minute we drove into Daly Waters we knew it was something special. Checked into our accommodation which was everything we were promised, super clean and comfortable. We headed over to the pub for an icy cold beer and a look around all the memorabilia before dinner. Dinner was yummy, we had surf and turf, chicken schnitzel and a burger. very generous serves and tasty. Listened to the entertainment which was fun with great variety of music to sing along to. Great night’s sleep and then a great breakfast. Staff were friendly and warm and we felt very welcome. Super great time, Daly Waters will always be happy memory. Thank you”
