Mark Moxon's Travel Writing

Australia: Daly Waters

The pub at Daly Waters
The pub at Daly Waters has a pretty impressive collection of pub junk inside

After a couple of days relaxing in the bush, I set off from Elsey to take a big chunk out of the journey south. The road stretches for an awfully long way with very little to see on the way – Darwin to Adelaide by road is 3019km, or about 30 hours of driving – and the only way to get it done is to devote entire days to driving. So to break up the first day back on the highway, I made two little stops, one at Daly Waters, and one at Tennant Creek.

The Devil's Marbles
The strange rock formations of the Devil's Marbles are just off the highway
