Humpty Doo Hotel
A visit to the Territory would not be complete without a pitstop at the world famous Humpty Doo Hotel, which also boasts the only drive thru bottle shop on the very lengthy Arnhem Highway! Enjoy an ice-cold beer in the beer garden, admire the huge buffalo horns above the bar and why not collect some quirky Humpty Doo souvenirs from the gift shop.
