Daly River

Rivière Daly

Mecque de la pêche et abondance d'écosystèmes, de sources chaudes, de gorges, de promenades et de lieux de baignade, la région de Daly River est appréciée des amateurs de plein air.

Située sur une route panoramique à mi-chemin entre Darwin et Katherine, la région de Daly River est célèbre pour sa pêche. Rendez-vous dans la région de Daly River pour les compétitions annuelles de pêche de Barramundi, montez à bord d'un bateau de pêche ou louez un bateau et tentez votre chance pour attraper le poisson qui vaut un million de dollars lors de la plus grande compétition de pêche du Territoire du Nord.

La rivière Daly traverse les terres traditionnelles des peuples Jawoyn, Wagiman, Malak-Malak, Marranunggu, Marrathiel et Wadjigan, entre autres.

Si le camping est votre style, vous pouvez installer votre campement dans l'un des nombreux parcs de caravanes pittoresques au bord de la rivière ou dans des campings gérés dans la région de Daly River et la région voisine de Douglas Daly - mais assurez-vous de réserver votre place en ligne via Parks NT avant de partir !

Le centre des arts Merrepen de la communauté locale de Nauiyu vaut bien une visite dans la région de Daly River. Des artistes autochtones sont souvent en résidence pour créer leurs œuvres, et vous pouvez soutenir les artistes en achetant une peinture, une sérigraphie, un tissu imprimé à la main, un tissage ou un bijou en souvenir de votre voyage.

La rivière Daly est accessible par des routes goudronnées à partir de la Stuart Highway, juste après le canton d'Adelaide River, ou pour les amateurs de 4x4, via la piste de la rivière Reynolds qui traverse le parc national de Litchfield.
