Daly Waters Information
Daly Waters is a small rural town in the Northern Territory outback. The Jingili Aboriginal people originally inhabited the area and Daly waters today is a tourist hot spot for those wanting to see the real outback of Australia.
The name Daly Waters was given by the Australian explorer John McDougall Stuart on his third attempt on route to the township of Darwin. The name may have originated from the thoughts of John Stuart as he found fresh water in Daly Waters and could mean “Daily Water”. 1926 Daly Waters was also the centre of the London to Sydney air race.
Another interesting fact is that Daly Waters was once the refuelling station for Qantas flights to Singapore. Today the original Qantas hangar still stands and is a must see tourist attraction which houses photo’s, equipment and historical documents from yesteryear.
The Daly Waters Pub is the centre of attention for tourists who are travelling from Darwin to Alice Springs. For those who have watched the famous Australian movie Crocodile Dundee will recognise that Daly Waters is very similar to the town featured in the movie, which makes Daly Waters an extremely popular pit stop.
All who visit Daly Waters will experience memories that will be with them for a lifetime. Where else in the world could you experience the fun of playing Ten Pin Bowling in the middle of the main street?
One of the towns attractions is the Australian thong tree which features thousands of thongs from previous visitors who have passed through the area and once seen it is likely you will want to add your thongs to the collection. Another great thing to see is the historic display, which features old memorabilia and old bank notes from all over the globe. The town also features the Outback traffic light which is the only traffic light you will see for thousands of kilometres.
