Daly River

Daly-Fluss

Dieses Gebiet ist von Darwin aus leicht zu erreichen und ein beliebtes Ziel für Angler und einfache Wochenendausflüge.

Die Siedlung Daly River, oder „Daly“, wie die Einheimischen sie liebevoll nennen, hat etwa 560 Einwohner und liegt 110 Kilometer westlich des Stuart Highway. Die Überquerung des Daly River war traditionell ein Treffpunkt für die einheimischen Aborigines, um Handel zu treiben und Zeremonien abzuhalten. Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts kamen europäische Bauern, Missionare, Bergleute und Hirten. Das Merrepen Art Centre veranstaltet jedes Jahr im Mai oder Juni ein Kunst- und Kulturfestival der Aborigines. Das Festival umfasst Kunstverkäufe und eine Auktion, traditionelle Musik und Tanz, Bush-Tucker-Vorführungen und einen sportlichen Karneval.

Der Daly River selbst ist ein malerischer Gezeitenfluss, Heimat von Süßwasser- und Salzwasserkrokodilen und eine reiche Quelle für Barramundi. Der Daly veranstaltet jährlich zwei große Angelwettbewerbe, den „Barra Classic“ und die „Barra Nationals“.

Bamboo Creek und Horseshoe Billabong sind wunderschöne Orte, um ein Picknick zu machen und die Gesellschaft seltener Vögel und Wallabys zu genießen. Unterkünfte für jeden Geldbeutel gibt es im Daly River Pub, im Banyan Farm Tourist Park, im Daly River Highway Inn und auf der historischen Daly River Mango Farm. Ein drei Kilometer langer Spaziergang rund um die Farm führt zu verschiedenen Billabongs und den Ruinen einer Jesuitenmission aus dem 19. Jahrhundert.
