Information on the Nauiyu Daly River Region
“Nauiyu is a small and peaceful community nestled on the banks of the Daly River, considered by many as the best barramundi fishing river in Australia. Nauiyu is 230km south of Darwin and is accessible by sealed road with new upgrades of the road making Daly River accessible in most weather conditions…”
“Our wild and beautiful river with it’s seasonal tides and streams, the rainforest, animal life and birds, and especially the call of the jungle fowl will never cease to fascinate us…” Nancy Polishuk 1987
WARNING: Care should be taken close to the water due to many crocodiles in the region.
