We pass by the Tropic of Capricorn then stop at the Barrow Creek Pub. Precariously balanced on their rocky perch are Karlu Karlu (the Devils Marbles), a site sacred to its traditional owners. Last stop for today is our private campsite at Banka Banka station where stay for the night. (LD)
No visit to the Top End would be complete without a stop at the famed Daly Waters pub, a classic outback roadhouse loved by travellers from far and wide. Mataranka lies in the heart of the never-never, and you'll feel a million miles from anywhere as you soak in the steamy thermal springs. As the day draws to a close, we reach our overnight camp near the stunning Katherine Gorge. (BLD)
The gorge is all yours this morning, with a half day to spend cruising (at own expense and seasonal) the spectacular waters. Want to see more? If you're looking for something truly adventurous you can rent a canoe and paddle yourself through the gorge. Later, we head back to Darwin after a stop at idyllic Edith Falls. (BL)
