sunset karumba

sunset karumba , originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

Karumba is only 72 kms from Normanton, an hours drive. It is renowned for it’s sunsets and I have always wanted to visit this place. So as we were in a good camp in Normanton we made it a day trip. The road was straight and well sealed, easy driving.

Jack found the fish and prawn wholesale depot and we bought 1 kilo of beautiful cooked gulf prawns just been landed that morning. With a glass of wine and fresh baked bread we had bought from the fantastic little bakery in Normanton, we ate them for lunch.

This is the only beach on the gulf that has a sealed road to it. Since the road was sealed tourists swelled from 5000 a year to 100,000 a year now.
We enjoyed a walk along the beach which is all crushed shells, and the rocks are made of a conglomerate of shells, and found a number of little hermit crabs scurrying around.

We finished the day at the Sunset Tavern, right on the beach front watching the sun go down sharing one plate of fish and chips. It was a cloudless sky and as the barman said, all sunsets here are good but you need clouds for it to be spectacular.

I was happy to see the sunset over the Gulf, it is another travel experience I have now achieved.
