Katherine - Daly Waters, NT

We drove into Katherine,  intending to camp at Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park, however the Gorge Road was closed, so we headed north to Edith Falls instead. We hiked upwards and into the Top Pool for a beautiful swim...

We had a few days around Katherine but the heat was getting too much for us, so after a couple of 35 degree nights we decided to head south for Mataranka Thermal Pool and Bitter Springs (Elsey National Park). We are loving the thermal pools and springs...

 Heading further south, we stopped in at Daly Waters. Daly Waters is a historic town, home to Australia's first international airport, refuelling planes in WWII and also lays claim to have the oldest pub in Australia. We had a night camped by the pub, the most relaxed staff and icy-cold refreshments. There's a pool off the side of the pub too, which stays open for a night swim!
