Stayed here for 1 night on our way to Darwin. Staff were brilliant, as were the food and drink at the wonderfully quirky pub. Powered sites were level and on lovely green grass with excellent shade. Pool area was fantastic after a long hot day of driving. Shower blocks (only the red block was open at the time) were quite...

Fantastic place! It has the best pub outdoor spaces we've seen so far in NT. Would be amazing to stay overnight in the caravan park/tent areas out back. The food was exceptionally good. And the bloke behind the counter seems happy to spin you a yarn or two.

We think it is great too but thank you for your positive feedback. I will pass this on in staff meeting. Next time you will have to stay we have entertainment everynight during the dry season Cheers

We arrived at Daly Waters after a couple of stressful days, and our time here was wonderful and helped us all to relax and enjoy our trip again. The kids loved everything about the pub and the surrounding campground, and especially the pool. We camped in the unpowered area of the campground, which was only $18 - kids were free....

Let the mischievous child in you come out here! Hang your hat, bra, thong, jangles, cap, whatever takes your fancy in this bar. Enjoy a refreshment or a dip in the pool. It all here, everything a traveller needs for a rest from such a long journey. Spend time looking through all the "stuff". I hear a rumour that they...

Thank you for your excellent review We do not intentionally remove the "stuff" We do take everything down and wash it usually 3 times a year That which survives the machine is returned to it's place. There are items around the place that have been there for many years. See hou in 10 years Cheers!

Only dropped in here for a quick beer on our travels from Darwin to Adelaide but what an amazing place! Great service, well presented and would have loved to have stayed for food but didnt have time. Ladies bathrooms were modern and clean! A happy little place to visit for sure!

Stayed here numerous times while passing through. Always friendly staff, good cold beer and a bloody good meal! For the history of the pub, service they provide and memories they create, you can't go wrong with the price of the room. I think everybody should stay here at least once!

We stayed here for 1 night in September 2016 as part of an organised tour. Watch for the wallabies on your drive up to the pub - they're everywhere. We arrived here after a long day of travelling and given its location, it was still over 30 degrees at 6pm when we got here so a cool pint was very...

We were almost on the last stretch of the drive from Sydney to Darwin travelling for work. We had prepaid for our room but my hubbie said will we keep driving- we would be in Darwin by bedtime? We flipped a coin and decided to stop for the night and boy am I glad we did - what an experience!...
