In 2016, Easter will be celebrated with the Good Friday holiday on 25 March and Easter Monday holiday on 28 March to create a 4-day long weekend.
This is the biggest and most anticipated long weekend of the year and is thus the busiest holiday time of the year on our nation’s roads. It is also one of only two times each year when almost all retail stores, restaurants and cafes close on the official public holidays (the other being Christmas).
It’s necessary to plan your Easter long weekend travel with significant lead time – ideally months beforehand. Many hotels, resorts and campsites are booked out months in advance, even a year or more for popular locations. Similarly, restaurants receive heavy bookings in advance for their Easter Sunday lunches.
Many say Karumba Point Sunset Carava Park is one of the best parks in Australia and certainly the best in the Gulf of Carpentaria. Guests return to the park year after year.

It is right next to the beach and boat ramp, has all the facilities, slabs, shade, shop, pool, barbecues, showers, toilets, TV, sites, cabins, villas, entertainment, roast nights and a free monthly sausage sizzle.
300 meters up the road you have the Sunset Tavern where you can get a feed, a beer, play the pokies, and get a bet on the dogs or the horses. Maybe you can win 70 million on the Lotto!!
