Stop At: Daly Waters, Daly Waters, Top End, Northern Territory
Despite the tiny population of the settlement, the Daly Waters’ Pub is one of the Territory’s most famous watering holes. One of the oldest buildings in the Northern Territory, built in 1930, the pub is a quirky place clad in corrugated iron and crammed with decades of memorabilia. The Jingili people, the traditional Aboriginal owners of the area, believe the Dreaming tracks of the Emu and the Sun travelled through here on their way to the southern parts of the Northern Territory. In 1862, after two unsuccessful attempts to cross the continent, early explorer John McDougall Stuart finally discovered water in this region. He blazed an ‘S’ in a nearby tree to signify his important find.

Renner Springs was named in honour of Dr Frederick Renner, medical officer to the men working on the Overland Telegraph Line, who discovered the springs when he noticed flocks of birds converging in the area.

Take your time to explore the region’s most famous landmark.

Aileron, north of Alice Springs in Anmatjere Country, is more than just a rest stop.

It’s the home of the striking giant figure of the ‘Anmatjere Man’ – a sculpture by Mark Egan that stands at 17m high and weighs a massive 8 tonnes! The Anmatjere man overlooks Aileron and the surrounding region and is visible from the highway – as is Aileron’s version of the “Hollywood” sign, which makes for a great holiday photo.
