"Hells Gate" Daly Waters by aussirose

This is really my Hells Gate page. VT does not have Hells Gate as a selection.... not even Borroloola....so I had to take the nearest choice - Daly Waters, which is the turn off to the NT/QLD border and Hells Gate.
We had left Normanton early morning, had lunch at Burketown... and were headed across the top end on our journey from Cairns to Darwin after the big 2009 downunder meet at Airlie Beach.
Well we had been travelling all day.....this was the longest section of our journey. We arrived at Hells Gate in the middle of nowhere.... just before sunset .... dust churning as we hit the brake. Since it was dusk and we didn't want to create road kill, we decided to stop for the night.
Well there's not much at Hells gate. Just a small roadhouse with container type accommodation .... (reminded me of the dog boxes we stayed in at Bordertown on the Nullabour).
Even the old dunny was out of order haha ;o)

- Pros:Interesting rock formations at Hells Gate.
- Cons:Do not stay at Hells Gate for the night. Drive through.
- In a nutshell:Hells Gate - Border of QLD and NT - Hell on earth!
This is where we did our first 4 wheel driver crossing. Robinson River is the reason why you need to be driving a 4x4.... more travel advice
Ticks are a problem in Australia. This warning sign is very relevant. Do not bring animals over the border with... more travel advice
