Day 5: Alice Springs to Daly Waters Historic Pub

Left early for the 915km trek from the backpackers in Alice Springs to Daly Waters….

Stopped at the character-filled, beautifully clean and friendly Barrow Creek Hotel to fill up with fuel and met the lovely Manager and her cat ‘Tiger’, plus the very kind and friendly duo of Bazza and Karina who were assisting with maitenance.

Travelled on to be soon, utterly awestruck, with Devils Marbles rock formations….

Then stopped 10kms past of Tennant Creek town where I found a great picnic spot in Threeways Caravan Park….

Then onwards to Daly Creek Historic township, to stay the night at the local Daly Waters Historic pub – now THAT is a true gem of a town… full of memorabilia…. and discovered that Daly Waters airfield used to be the main fuel refill for planes on their way to Singapore ie. was Australia’s first International airfield!

Finished the day with meeting a truly lovely lady – Mel – caring for an orphaned Joey called Chris!!

There is many photos – see more below……
