2018 Kakadu Road Trip - Tennant Creek to Bitter Springs

Our original destination was Daly Waters Pub - apparently this should be on everyone's bucket list. We pulled in here at lunchtime and the campground was already packed full. We parked up down the side street and went out to check out what all the fuss is about.

The pub is definitely unique  - lots to see hanging on the walls. I am sure the food and entertainment would also be great but we decided to have lunch and keep going.

We had parked outside an abandoned building that used be the old post office amongst many things. The kids had fun exploring through this building. Out the back was old jail cells - a real step in time. We had a bit of fun in here as well.

The journey here had been challenging - more car trouble with the car shutting down while driving at 100k and then being stuck in gear and no power steering. We thought we were headed straight for Darwin but is was the weekend and nothing was open so we went to Bitter Springs (Mataranka). We were lucky to get a camp sport at the caravan park. Once set up at camp we went down to the Springs - these were amazing. 32 degrees and we just floated down the stream. The walk back to the start was a bit fresh though.

Lock him up and throw away the key!
