Karumba – a really interesting and strangely beautiful place
The current population is approximately 600. In years past the population was higher and the town was bustling with activity.
Karumba used to be home base for roughly 200 prawn trawlers that worked the gulf for the banana, tiger and endeavor prawns. The current fleet is a mere 49 boats. The industry was rationalized to make sure it was sustainable from an ecological and economic perspective.
Karumba industry is now prawn fishing, mud crabbing, barramundi fishing, mackerel fishing, zinc mining and live cattle and goat export. The most recent growth industry is tourism with the grey nomads compromising the major component.
