We were blown away by nature at it's best at Longreach waters the other day even the local aborigines had never seen anything like it, 2,000 - 3,000 stags and 200-300 pelicans having a feed of fish and this happened 3 times one day, it was an awesome sight. If you are travelling up north at the moment heading for Darwin it's just on the outskirts of Elliott, take the dirt track just over the cattle grid just past the Stockyard sign and ignore the NO Entry sign you won't be disappointed

Hi Penchy
We do believe it is private property that we travel on for part of the way but an old NT law states that you can not stop anyone crossing your land on a gazetted road or track so that you can water your stock, besides the camp spot is now in Camps 6 and the locals are more than happy for us to use it.
Cheers

Brilliant spot. We have stayed there a few times on our travels. There are even toilets and BBQ’s that were built as part of the National Building Program. Last year we were there when a large flock of cormorants were in a feeding frenzy and we have meet people who were lucky enough to be there when there were thousands of Pelicans. Kevin
