Marty Conroy Caught Monster Barra of 113 cm Size in Karumba
Karumba is Situated on the mouth of the Norman River, Karumba is already well known as a recreational fishing mecca and birdwatchers paradise. Today however, being so accessible, Karumba is fast becoming a must do destination for travellers looking for an experience with a difference. The rich marine wetlands wind their way inland some 30 kilometres from the Gulf of Carpentaria coastline, this is truly where the savannah outback meets the sea.
During the summer, monsoon rains replenish the waterways and attract a multitude of birds in preparation for the popular winter tourist season, when fishing enthusiasts along with many round Australia and overseas travellers descend on Karumba for some of the best wild caught barramundi in Australia. Learn all about the fascinating facts on Barramundi, the marine habitat and Gulf in general at the Barramundi Discovery Centre where you can adopt your very own barramundi or try feeding the big mouth fish yourself.
With Easter just weeks away, event organisers are putting the finishing touches on the biggest barramundi fishing competition across the north west of Queensland.
Karumba’s tourism expert said that fishing conditions are magnificent due to an ideal recent heavy rain. At the moment people are catching big barra in length although we are hoping for many monsters more than one metre in size during the tournament.
