- Sunday 3 September
- Katherine-Daly Waters Pub
- Distance from Darwin: 617.1km
Today started with doing Weekend Breakfast from the ABC in Katherine. Which is amazing by the way. Only one person here works for the ABC – he’s Dan, the rural reporter – and his office is just off the reception of Katherine’s Tourist Information centre. The studio is a small cupboard behind this.
So it was a bit surreal walking through the tourist centre in the dark. I think I gave the cleaners quite a surprise!
We took off after a quick breakfast and dip in Katherine Hot Springs.
A few people recommended we stop at Mataranka. We had a look but – no pets!
So now it’s 2.30pm and we’re on the verandah of our cabin, overlooking an Aussie outback icon: Daly Waters Pub. Anyone thirsty????
