After Nitmiluk NP we decided to take a detour and visit the Douglas and Daly rivers and our first stop was at the Douglas Hot Spring Park where we camped for one night. The hot springs flows from a fault in the earth’s crust into the Douglas River and makes it an excellent bathing spot. The water is 50 degrees Centigrade in places and full of minerals. Very good for a bad back and shoulders. The campsite was next to the river and the cockotoos entertained us.
We drove down to Daly River in my pursuit to catch a big Barramundi but it turned out to be a wild goose chase as the river was so eroded that access from the river shore was not possible. Most of the people there had boats and we only camped one night and continued on to Litchfield National Park.
