Daly Waters Historic Pub

Print this page

Have a beer and a bite at the bar of a true corrugated iron outback pub and explore the historic area, harking back to the town's aviation heydays.

A true blue outback pub - the Daly Waters Pub is a colourful pub, clad in corrugated iron, draped with bougainvilleas and crammed with decades of memorabilia. It began its current incarnation serving passengers arriving on the new Qantas airline in 1934 and was the first international runway and airport in Australia. As a popular watering hole along the track, the Daly Waters Pub holds a liquor licence that has been in continuous use since 1938.

The pub is on the old droving track and was a watering hole for the drovers as well as travellers heading north and south. It was used as a staging post during the Second World War for the Australian and American Air force. There is a static historical display housed in the WWII hangar at the airport.

An extensive menu includes a range of salads, steaks, lamb, chicken, and best of all fresh local wild caught territory barramundi and thread fin salmon. Try the barra bites in a crispy pale ale batter or pancakes for breakfast.

The world famous beef and barra meals, with a selection of salads and hot damper, are served every night during the dry season, bookings are essential.
