My place is close to the amazing Daly River, fabulous Barramundi fishing, birds and wildlife including the water buffalo and salt water crocodile! You’ll love my place because of the tranquility, the views, 20 acres of beautiful bush, the remoteness, no neighbours and 2 acres of garden around the house for kids and camping. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).
Range view is a perfect place for a getaway to the bush but with the comfort of staying in a house. Think of it as glamping! No radio or TV reception (tho you can play movies on our TV through a media player) and limited phone and internet reception so you can truly leave the city and all the distractions of technology behind. Abundant birdlife and one of the best fishing rivers in the NT.
For river access Rangeview is about halfway between the public boat-ramp and the crossing down by the pub. For the public boat ramp turn left out of the driveway and it’s approx 12kms, about half is dirt road than can be quite corrugated mid season and potholed and boggy in the wet.
For the crossing, the pub and Nauiyu community turn right and head back to Daly River Road. Then it’s a few kms down to the Nauiyu turnoff. Keep on the Daly road and follow signs for the pub and the crossing.
