The township of Adelaide River lies on the Stuart Highway 201 km northwest of Katherine and 114 km south of Darwin and has a population of 159. It is located near the headwaters of the Adelaide River.

Adelaide River, being about halfway between Southport and Pine Creek, became a popular camping spot and so, in 1873, an enterprising man named Dougherty opened up an eating place. He constructed a rough building out of logs and bark. A short time later H. S. Finlay opened the settlement's first hotel which he called the QCE Hotel meaning 'Quiet, Comfort and Ease'. In 1879 a police camp was built at the river crossing.
