Daly Waters Pub
The historic Daly Waters Pub has stood the test of time since 1930 as one of the favourite original outback pubs by locals and tourists alike! It's located right in the middle of ‘Whoop Whoop’, around 600 kilometres south of Darwin! Stop by for a drink, a bite to eat and behold the walls adorned with passing patrons' 'treasures'!
Humpty Doo Hotel
This venue has become a favourite pitstop for many en route to or from Kakadu National Park, not only for its catchy name but also for the friendly hospitality and drink with the locals. It is home to a very large set of buffalo horns, taking pride of place above the bar, plus some fun souvenirs and merchandise. This typical Aussie pub is also famous for its ‘Trio Burgers’ of Barra, Buffalo and Croc for a true taste of the Territory!
Pink Panther Hotel
The historic Larrimah Pink Panther Hotel has been ranked in the Top Ten Outback Pubs in Australia for uniqueness and is renowned for its warm country hospitality and eclectic collection of memorabilia - including the panthers of course! Stop by for a cold drink, a chat, hear some tales, try a famous homemade pie and visit the free Larrimah Museum and zoo! You'll find it on Mahony Street, Stuart Highway, south of Mataranka.
Adelaide River Inn
Located in the small town of Adelaide River in a lush garden setting, the Adelaide River Inn is yet another unique pub that welcomes everyone to experience this old-style country pub bursting with history, charisma and charm. Down one end of the bar you’ll find “Charlie” the Buffalo, made famous by the Crocodile Dundee movie, ready for a memorable photo. Relax and enjoy a drink and a great meal in the shady beer garden before discovering the nearby attractions including World War II sites and the local’s secret – Robin Falls.
Perched on the picturesque Cullen Bay in Darwin, this colourful gastropub comes complete with carnival attractions and is a firm favourite with locals and visitors thanks to its eclectic vibe and waterfront setting. Expect a great beer and refreshment list in addition to the standard pub fare including pizzas, schnitzels and some of the best burgers and fries in town! Plus the quirky bathrooms have been somewhat of a curious drawcard for patrons over many years now, which you’ll need to experience for yourself.
This is the longest standing watering hole in the town of Alice Springs, quenching thirsts since 1959. It has traded under a few different names during its time and now bears its current name from the Todd River, the town’s main, and often completely dry, river. Enjoy some outback hospitality, a good pub meal and a refreshing drink as you take in the uniqueness and history of this iconic tavern.
Pioneer BBQ and Bar
Aussie simplicity at its best, meat on the BBQ cooked by you. Choose from steaks, barramundi, emu sausages and more and cook it yourself to your liking. Pair it with an ice-cold beer and chat with other travellers for that ‘pub’ feel in Uluru.
