Tour Bookings

We do tour bookings at our reception free of charge as a service to you as we want you to experience the best of Karumba. Whether you want to go fishing, bird watching or go on an awesome sunset cruise, we can assist you. We do bookings for Kerry D Fishing Charters, Karumba Saltwater Fishing, The Ferryman Cruise and Croc n Crab Cruises. We also do bookings for Queensland Rail’s Gulflander train that runs out of Normanton. If you have booked with us and you would like to take in some or all of these adventures, call us on (07) 47 459277 or email us at and we will pre-book your tour.

New Dog Wash Facility

We are installing a dog wash facility at our park. We hope to have this operating within 2 weeks. The cost is $10 for 10 minutes. It has hot and cold water with shampoo and conditioner.

It will be located at the front of the park adjacent to the fish cleaning area and it will incorporate an enclosed fenced area. This is unique to Karumba as the nearest dog wash facility to us is Mount Isa and Atherton which is over 500km away.

No Pets in Villas

No pets of any kind are allowed inside of the Villas at anytime. You must declare any pets that are with you upon check in.

Letters to Editors

This week in Letters to the Editor, a poem…

God grant that I may live to fish until my dying day

And when it comes to my last cast

To then most humbly pray

When in the Lord’s safe landing net, I’m peacefully asleep

That in his mercy to be judged as good enough to keep


Thanks Elaine,

A great fisherman’s story.

Please email your letters to us here on and ask us anything that you would like to know.
