All in Douglas- Daly

Oolloo Crossing: Oolloo Road, Douglas Daly

Oolloo Crossing is one of the NT government’s conservation areas. At times you may be able to cross the Daly River at Oolloo Crossing. Once you have crossed the river, access to the property on the opposite bank is prohibited.

The crossing is a good spot to fish for barramundi with a plenty of dead trees providing shelter for these predatory fish. I have seen small tinnies being launched below the crossing.

Douglas Daly Tourist Park: Oolloo Road, Douglas Daly

Douglas Daly Tourist Park

Douglas Daly Tourist Park provides campsites under large, shady trees with some grass underfoot. Both powered and non-powered campsites are available as well as cabins to hire. The park is also in charge of the Douglas Daly Esplanade bush camps. The roadside café with licensed bar and restaurant provides good hearty pub food. Ice, milk, cool drinks are on sale. Fuel station/ pups are located just in front of the café.

Butterfly Gorge. Oolloo Road, Douglas Daly

Butterfly Gorge

A spectacular, and in my opinion, a hidden gem in the Northern Territory – make the effort and explore this gorge

The Douglas River has cut a deep, narrow gorge through a low, sandstone plateau. A cathedral-like atmosphere has been created, with towering, shear, cliff-faces of red and yellow rock, which aeons of wet season rain has polished at their base to a smooth, reflective surface.
