Surrounded by wetlands at the mouth of the Norman River in northern Qld, Karumba is a small town in the Gulf of Carpentaria where fishing is a way of life.
“Worth driving or riding your pushie for a week for fishing, fresh prawns, grabbing a beer and watching the sunset, or just being awestruck at the uncertain distinction between land and sea as the mudflats stretch for kilometres.” Said Visitors.
Originally a telegraph station until the 1930s when it became a stopover for flying boats on their way to London, Karumba became even more popular in the ’60s when vast quantities of prawns and barramundi were discovered in the river. It’s not uncommon to see a cattle herd on the road and cranes and other waterbirds feeding beside it, due to the 30km of surrounding wetlands. Being the only beach on the Gulf accessible by sealed road, Karumba is popular for fishermen hoping to land “the big one”.
