The prawn and barramundi fishing capital of Australia at the mouth of the Norman River was once a flying boat base. Visit the Barramundi Discovery Centre for a great insight into sustaining this industry. Try to time your visit for the Karumba Katch Seafood festival in October, and when in your tinnie please stay well clear of the ore carrying ships. Excellent birdwatching opportunities in the coastal and mangrove habitats. Choose from the Suave Bar or the Animal Bar when it’s time for a cold one.
