This my fourth visit to Daly Waters Pub, this time took my partner for his first visit. It's old, remote and eccentric to say the least but well worth the detour of the highway. Previously visited in high season but came through earlier this time on way to Darwin in April. Still quite a few campers here. We stayed in campground on a power site. There are several single ensuite toilet/shower blocks which are basic but clean. They have cabins which look fine from outside. Their nightly beef and barra was delicious as usual. There is a small museum across the road worth the look if interested in local history. Apparently Daly Waters was Australia's first international airport. Always worth a visit when driving by.
