Day 2

  • 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????

  1. Am so enjoying this trip. Love the idea and photos. What about Philip Glass Mad Rush (but don’t rush please) or Dr Garrumul?


  2. I would imagine playing the tuba ( Great photo by the way.) Is thirsty work. So staying at the Daly Waters makes sense to me. Have a great time all.
