After a small change of travel plans, this episode we say goodbye to the ghost town of Mary Kathleen and make our way to Karumba, on the Gulf of Carpentaria. Our first stop is to Cloncurry, to fill our water tanks and pick up supplies, before we overnight at the historic (and recently reopened) Quamby Hotel. This fantastic little pub in one of the most remote places in the country allows camping out back, and serves up great meals, cold drinks and plenty of smiles.
Then, we push on to Karumba, driving through Normanton and taking in the sights of the famous Purple Pub, and Krys the 8 metre crocodile!
We set up camp at the Karumba Sunset Point Caravan Park and experience everything this town has to offer including the Les Wilson Barramundi Centre and the Sunset Tavern. Plus, Paul has a brilliant day aboard Kerry D’s Fishing Charter and catches more fish in one day than he has his entire life! We give the new air fyer a run and cook up freshly caught fish and chips… delicious!
