Daly Waters

Daly Waters with Mulgas Adventures

With an official population of 9 (2016 census), Daly Waters is a ‘must do’ stop enroute Darwin to Alice Springs. This small town is home to one of the most iconic outback pubs in Australia.

The town has seen its fair share of history dating back 40,000 years to the Yangman people (traditional owners) surviving the harsh country. In the 1870’s an overland telegraph line was built connecting Australia to the rest of the world for the first time. Daly waters was an important stop for many people, it became a distribution centre for the mail and drovers from across Australia would stop at this location to give their cattle a rest and a drink.

Daly Waters was a stop for many people including drovers and mailmen, the first Pub was opened in 1893, serving those thirsty drovers and their cattle.  The current pub was built in 1930 which coincided with the airstrip being constructed to service the Daly Waters Airmail run.  It became an RAAF station on 18 March 1942. The World War II hanger still stands beside the runway.

Today this great pub caters more for the ‘grey nomads’, backpackers and truckies, all of which stop for a refreshing drink, meal or to look inside to simply see what all those locals are to in this authentic Aussie outback pub.
