Daly River Crossing - Cortesy of Tourism NT

The Daly River Crossing, the heart of the region,is about 110km west off the Stuart Hwy. The turnoffs are at either end of the Scenic Route, just north of Hayes Creek or just south of Adelaide River. The Daly River road can also be accessed through the Litchfield National Park with four-wheel drive during the dry season only. Today the town is little more than a smaller pub with a couple airconditioned motel style units, a police station, and a small campground-caravan park.

It is exotically located on the banks of the river a couple of kilometres from the beautiful Daly River Crossing. Removed from the main tourist route by a reasonable dirt road which runs 77 km from the turnoff at the Stuart Highway, this small settlement is a centre for visitors wishing to explore the beauties of the Daly River Nature Park and fishermen eager to catch that elusive king of fishes - the barramundi. There are locals who are prepared to declare that the best barramundi in the Territory are caught in the Daly River. The Daly River region is located between Darwin and Katherine. Hot springs, gorges and unique ecosystems make for great camping and bushwalking.

Daly River (including Woolianna) Small, sleepy outpost on the Daly River. The Daly River Region is nestled between Litchfield and Kakadu National Parks in the Northern Territory of Australia, 230kms south west of Darwin (Capital of the Northern Territory) and 260km north west of Katherine. The region is home to a number of Aboriginal peoples living in various communities within the area. A map of the Daly River can be found at http://www.nt.gov.au

<<< The photo on the left the Douglas River Esplanade, Douglas Daly Region The river starts where the Katherine and Flora Rivers meet encompassing the areas of the Douglas Daly and Daly River regions. Famed for its large barramundi, the Daly is one of the more popular waterways for recreational fishing, with two major fishing competitions held annually, the Barra Classic and the Barra Nationals.

This Conservation Area protects part of the Douglas River and its riverine wildlife. Along the river, springs bubble to the surface from underlying groundwater aquifers forming quiet, shady pools, rushing cascades, thermal pools, sandy beaches and unusual limestone formations. If you are travelling south from Darwin, take the Old Stuart Highway scenic route from Adelaide River. If travelling north, take the scenic route just north of Hayes Creek, then take the Oolloo Road until you reach the Douglas Daly Park.

The Conservation Area is around 140km from Katherine and 200km from Darwin. Once in the Conservation Area a dirt track provides Dry Season access for all vehicles (from May to September). Follow the creekline along the Douglas River and explore the riverine habitat and enjoy the quiet pools, sandy beaches and cascades. The most comfortable time to visit is in the Dry Season (from May to September). Heavy rains during the Wet Season (October to April) may cause road closures. Restrictions: No swimming due to the presence of saltwater crocodiles. Courtesy of http://www.parksandwildlife.nt.gov.au/

<<< The photo on the left the Umbrawarra-Gorge Butterfly Gorge Nature Park is another popular attraction and can be reached 17 kilometres past the Douglas Hot Springs turn-off and the last few kilometres are suitable for four-wheel-drives only. The Gorge attracts thousands of butterflies seeking shelter in the crevices of its sheer rock faces.
