Adelaide River is a small settlement found between Darwin and Katherine in the Northern Territory's Top End. It lies some 200 km north-east of Katherine.

It was the base for 30, 000 Australian and American soldiers during WWII and was also a railway siding for the North Australian Railway from Darwin to Pine Creek.

Just north of the town is a large WWII cemetery for 434 servicemen and 54 civilians, who were killed by air-raids in Darwin.

There are some historical sites and pleasant scenic locations for walking and fishing in the area.
