Would Be A Great Fun To Visit Karumba with Family for School Holidays
It’s one of the best times of the year, heading off on a family holiday – the excitement, the anticipation, the chance for everyone to spend some quality time together… but don’t put on your rosetinted sunglasses just yet, because family holidays arent always fun and games. Anyone who’s gone away with the whole tribe before knows that it rarely goes as smoothly as you hope, so with that in mind – and to mark International Day of Families – we’ve compiled a family holiday survival guide for smart kids, to help you deal with overexcited parents when you travel together…
Ensure they bring some books to read. Know why? Because their phone/tablet/laptop has really good games on it, and you have really good stamina for asking, repeatedly, to use it. Now, nobody’s saying that adultscan’t try to use their own devices throughout the journey. Nobody’s saying that at all. It’s just, well, they might find themselves with a little more peace and quiet if they just hand over the device and read a good book instead.
That’s not a threat, just an observation. It’s quite simple, actually… you get the device, they enjoy the book, everyone’s happy. Unless the book has candy crush on it. Do books have candy crush? Can we have a go? What about now? But you said that ten minutes ago…
This is about managing expectations.
If you’re driving long distances, we recommend you make it very clear to them at the beginning of the journey that you will be bickering and fighting with each other in the back seat, and that it’s almost certain you won’t stop tormenting your brother/sister. Beyond that, make sure they understand that you know that they won’t actually turn the car around, and that there will still be a holiday, even if you don’t cut it out this instant.
Encourage them to make friends around the pool. As much as it’s great to get away with the parents for a family holiday, if you have to spend two full weeks together there’s a good chance they’ll start driving you mad within a few days. There’s only so much entertaining them you can do, and after a while you just won’t be able to continue pretending you want them to watch you jump in the pool again. They’ll have a great time too, making some nice new friends and doing things with people their own age. If they can get chatting to a few other parents around the pool, they’ll do their own thing a bit more and you’ll have more time to yourselves.
Do your best to avoid restaurants that don’t have chicken nuggets on the menu. It’s a wellknown fact that grownups are flighty and unpredictable when it comes to eating in different countries, and will order weird, strange food when they go to different countries. Children, on the other hand, are capable of remaining rational and consistent in their love for chicken nuggets, chips and burgers no gherkins, obviously.
Until your parents can learn to control their taste buds and stop behaving like such grownups when they go away, it’s best you pick the restaurants.
The Gulf area is home to numerous and diverse species of birds including migratory species parrots, finches, honeyeater, herons, birds of prey, brolgas and much much more. Karumba being located on the coastline with savannah grassland, meandering wetlands stretching up to 30km inland, savannah scrub and coastal mangrove environments is a virtual birdwatchers paradise.
The fishing experience in Karumba while staying at Karumba Point Sunset Caravan Park is one not be missed. The size of fish is something you will be talking about around many a BBQ! Because of the favourable climate conditions, fish numbers thrive in the gulf region and many different species are available.
The main reason people come to Karumba is for the fishing, and tinnies and cartoppers are everywhere. We saw many large barra and salmon being descaled at the fishcleaning tables and sightings of crocodiles were also common.
The beach at Karumba is very enjoyable for walks and the sunsets here are lovely. The fishing off the beach was also good.
The Barramundi Discovery Centre offers all types of fishing information, crocodile sightings, sunset cruises to enjoy and popular flights over the surrounding area and to Sweers Island.
The weather in this part of the country is great. For those in the cooler southern States, try to imagine sunny skies with temperatures ranging from a maximum of 32°C to a minimum of 18°C at night – and that’s in the middle of winter.
Fishing at Karumba
Target species normally caught include Blue Salmon, Spanish Mackerel up to 30kg, School Mackerel, Barred Javelin, Fingermark, King Salmon, Cobia, Barramundi, Bream cooler months, Queenfish to name just a few and we must not forget the fantastic MudCrabs.
Prawns are readily available at different venues as well as Barra and Chips if you prefer to release your fish caught on charter. Sit back and relax with someone else cooking for you while you enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine at your chosen place of accommodation.
The abundance of wildlife with migrating bird life as well as the normal everyday sightings of green frogs, kangaroos, goannas, crocodiles, black palm island cockatoos and many other bird species that we are both able to enjoy with the greatest wildlife experience also available to all tourists who take the opportunity to travel to the Gulf of Carpentaria and Karumba.
Adults are pretty good at remembering to have juice boxes and bottled water at hand for when you get a little hot and cranky. But when they get a little hot and cranky, juice just doesn’t cut the mustard. Luckily, we know just how to soothe them so that you can get a little peace and quiet. If high temperatures mean tempers are frayed and fuses are short, try this: gently whisper ‘cold, crisp Sauvignon Blanc’ intermittently. This may take a little time to work depending on the situation, but eventually the message will sink in, and before you know it they’ll be happily occupied with a glass and you can get a little peace and quiet to continue tormenting your siblings.
