    •   Show me: a map of Daly River

Daly River can be found about 222km south-west of Darwin by taking a turn-off from the Stuart highway. The township supports a population of 560 people and is a centre for tourism, agriculture and cattle.

Traditionally the Daly River crossing was a meeting place for Aboriginal people and by the close of the 1800s, European settlement had established farming, mining and a missionary community.

The Daly River itself has wildlife, crocodile and plentiful numbers of barrimundi. Fishing is one of the popular visitor attractions in the area - although swimming is not recommended.
