A short drive from Palmerston, en route to Kakadu and Litchfield, you will recognise Finlay’s Joint immediately, thanks to the 15-metre dinosaur standing out the front. Next to it is one of the most exquisite stone and plaster dragons you are likely to see. Part of a stonemason’s yard, the cafe specialises in hearty breakfast and tasty cafe fare, and the surrounding grounds are landscaped with all kinds of statues and hedges. Next door is a retail outlet for Asian antiques and the largest collection of kitsch in the Top End.
