The best outback pub we have visited to date has to be the Daly Waters pub north of Tennant Creek. Built in the 1930's to service early Qantas passengers on a refuelling stop, this wrought iron building has been serving customers ever since. It also has a handy campsite next door.
Opening hours are 7 am, closing time when the last man standing stops ordering drinks. Rumour had it that pancakes breakfasts were available at 4 am but we did not manage to stay awake to verify it.
We were treated to a beef and barramundi barbecue, with country music, yarns and jokes from resident entertainer 'Frank the Chookman'. The best ever act we have seen involving a man singing with a chicken on his head.
The interior is decorated with a vast array of very dusty signed undergarments, and we were very taken with the thong tree.
