Went on a dinner cruise up the river and then out into the gulf last night. Great scenery and birdlife. The river is about 1 km wide in places but only fairly shallow. At low tide the channel goes out 7 km through mud flats. More prawns for dinner (tough life). Today we start packing for the trip east to Mareeba so will be out of phone range for tthe next couple of days.

One of the parks features is a free fish bar b q every Saturday night. They do a great job serving about 150 people at their tables with fresh fish. The talent show after was a good laugh. The weather is very windy at the moment with very few fishermen going anywhere.
Just lazing around enjoying the warmth. Big feed of prawns yesterday and tonight is the fish barby at the camp kitchen. Not many fish being caught as the cold weather is blowing up from down south. Tonight is supposed to fall to 16 degrees. Have booked a sundown cruise for tomorrow so hope to get some good photos. As you can see from the photo the riverbank is not very exciting but there are plenty of birds and wildlife around. Had a game of bowls on Thursday ni...
First full day at Karumba. Went to Barramundi Breeding Farm and saw some huge fish. All run by volunteers and doing their best to keep up with the 100,000 tourists coming here every year. Had a 1.5kg mud crab done in Denny's chilli sauce tonight. Was a bit of a struggle but managed to finish it. Prawns tomorrow and maybe barra for lunch. Playing bowls tomorrow night at the local Recreation Club. Weather is great 30 during the day and 18 at night.
After two nights at Richmond we skipped Julia Creek as it was expensive and nothing to do. Travelled north to a camp site Called Bang Bang only 120km south of Normanton. (See photo) Had a look at Normanton but was not impressed. Arrived at Kurumba by lunchtime. Great spot with people catching plenty of fish. Will update tomorrow.
