12th May

After watching a beautiful sunrise at the Marbles we are on the road again.Our plan is to travel to Elliot.Spend a couple of days at the Longreach waterhole.A very hot travelling day, the surrounding scenery is very lush and lots of wattle in full bloom.

A lunch break at Renner Springs we were told by the locals that the road into the waterhole is in poor condition.At Elliot we refuelled very glad we are not spending the night told again that conditions are not good very rough and dry.A group meeting was called and it is decided we would travel onto Newcastle Waters rest area for an overnight stop.Glad we got there early as it was a popular spot and quickly filled up.

13th /14th May

Arrived early in Daly Waters as the camping ground fills up quickly.We got lucky and had a shady spot.Spending two nights here.

Daly Waters has a proud heritage.It hosts the first international airport in Australia.Also during WW2 it was a rear guard base during the bombing of Darwin.

The famous pub was originally a supply point for drovers.We have booked in for a Barra and Beef with salad tonight in the historical pub.After the meal we were then entertained by Chilli.A great feed and night was had by all.

We enjoyed the heritage walk following the explorer John McDouall Stuart trail.He discovered Daly Waters May 28th 1862
