Adelaide River Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 114 photos

Adelaide River refers to the river and the small township about 114k's south of Darwin along the Stuart Highway.
The township is a convenient stop along the way from Darwin to Katherine.
We stayed here at the Caravan Park on our big downunder Survivor Trip.

Adelaide River is also the home of Charlie who starred in the Crocodile Dundee movies.
Apparently they had to chop off his legs to get him into the pub here...poor fella.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Home of Charlie from Crocodile Dundee and interesting historical war cementary.
  • Cons:Noisy Road Trains.
  • In a nutshell:Good place for a pit stop, fuel and feed but I would stay overnight somewhere else.

    Looks like the "Survivors" had a nice time in Adelaide River, tho it does look a little cool at the campground. Free BBQ at Grove Hill Pub sounds inviting
