It’s time you headed out for another fishing adventure, Karumba
All this make my journey most impressive and lifetime family trip to Karumba, Queensland
After leaving Mount Surprise we took a long, very adventurous and memorable drive to Karumba which sits on the Gulf of Carpentaria. Did I mention it was a adventurous drive with extreme breath taking sunsets, wildlife alongwith change in the landscape? All this make my journey most impressive and lifetime family trip to Karumba, Queensland.
Before we reached Karumba we passed through Normanton with observed all my attention where there is a replica of the largest crocodile ever caught. Here is ol’ Krys.
Krystina Pawlowski (a chick!) shot the croc, although all photos were lost in the ’74 floods. This replica is an artists’ impression and built to the dimensions listed in the Guinness Book of Records.
There’s just something that doesn’t seem quite believable about this statue…like the size?
Though I don’t want to proven wrong on this account.
After setting up, we headed straight for the tavern for a beer and to watch the spectacular sunset. Here’s a few photos.
Now we reached to Karumba usually people called this place Anglers Paradise. I call this place dreams come true land as i had heard many stories about wildlife, millions of stars gazing in sky, dramatic sunsets valley and last but not least endless fishing catch spots.
We stayed at Karumba Point Sunset Caravan Park where we found very friendly staff, clean amenities, cement slabs with shaded trees, Swimming Pool, Fish Cleaning Area, BBQ Area, clean Camp Kitchen, and good pizza service.
The following day we went to the Barramundi Discovery Centre. It was pretty good. We learned that all Barramundi start life as males. When the wet season comes it flushes them out of the river into the ocean where they start to grow and change to the female gender. Right on!
There’s are so many thing to do in Karumba such as playing Golf to Exotic scenic flights. We took our children to water Park to enjoy some quality with children. Next, we come back Karumba Point Sunset Caravan Park and enjoy BBQ at Park with other Park visitors. We enjoyed friendly atmosphere at Park. We couldn’t forget brilliant experience of gazing millions of stars outside our Ensuited Cabin after viewing world most beautiful sunsets.
From that initial bite to the tug-of-war battle, there’s no greater feeling than knowing you’ve got a big fish at the end of your line. As the rod bends and your mates cheer, the sudden kick of adrenaline forces you to level up and reel that fish in.
When colour hits the water’s surface and the fish species is identified, your final task is to get it into the net and in the boat. But once that fish is slapping around on the floorboards, you can finally celebrate that the suspense is over and you’ve bagged yourself a nice one. Yee ha!
If it’s time you headed out for another fishing adventure, Queensland has you covered with some of the best fishing destinations and local hot spots where you can bag your next big fish. And, if you’re up for some friendly competition, show us what ya’ got at a local fishing competition.
