This Conservation Area protects part of the Douglas River and its riverine wildlife. Along the river, springs bubble to the surface from underlying groundwater aquifers forming quiet, shady pools, rushing cascades, thermal pools, sandy beaches and unusual limestone formations.
If you are travelling south from Darwin, take the Old Stuart Highway scenic route from Adelaide River. If travelling north, take the scenic route just north of Hayes Creek, then take the Oolloo Road until you reach the Douglas Daly Park.
The Conservation Area is around 140km from Katherine and 200km from Darwin. Once in the Conservation Area a dirt track provides Dry Season access for all vehicles (from May to September).
4WD recommended as only the first campsites are 2WD Accessible.; Camps 1-7 2WD; Camps 8-9 4WD Only; Bookings to camp can be made at Douglas Daly Tourist Park 8978 2497
