Humpty Doo is a small town in Australia’s Northern Territory, situated just south of the Arnhem Highway, approximately 40 kilometres from Darwin.
A town renowned for its Aussie authenticity, it is a popular stopping point for tourists on their way to Kakadu National Park and has many attractions of its own.
Main industries in the area include tourism and agriculture with the town known for experimenting with crops, although failing in a major rice growing project, they have been very successful in producing mangos earlier than the usual season and fetching top dollar at the markets.
Humpty Doo is also a major commuting suburb for those working in Darwin and Palmerston. In 2012 the Northern Territory Government opened a new state of the art bus interchange park and ride facility to accommodate the needs of those travelling to and from work.
The town has numerous schools including Humpty Doo Primary School, Saint Francis of Assisi and Tamimmin College.
The Humpty Do Hotel is well known and features in several bush ballads, including “The Man from Humpty Doo” and Slim Dusty’s “Humpty Doo Waltz”. It opened in 1971, survived Cyclone Tracy and is now a local icon.
The Big Boxing Crocodile sits proudly outside the United fuel station on the Arnhem Highway, one of the many “big things” found around Australia.
