Lunch at Karumba

Day 37 - Sunday 16 June 2013

Another sunny day in Normanton today with a forecast of 16 to 31 degrees (this is getting boring?), and a forecast of 16 to 29 degrees for Karumba. Our plan for today is to drive to Karumba for lunch at the Sunset Tavern - Di is looking forward to having barramundi again. The drive from Normanton to Karumba is about 75 kms across the flood plains and is therefore flat and generally uninteresting. Just outside Karumba we were held up by a large mob of cattle being driven down the road by a group of aboriginal stockmen.

We drove into Karumba for a quick look around, then out to Karumba Point and parked outside the Sunset Tavern. Sadly our lunch did not live up to expectations, with our crumbed barramundi overcooked and near cold on the plate - sack the chef I say!!!. We sat outside for a couple of drinks and chatted to several couples that we fist met at Cloncurry and again at Normanton. One couple from Canberra had driven to Karumba for lunch like us and are staying in the park at Normanton. The other two couples from Victoria have moved to one of the caravan parks at Karumba for 6 nights, but are now wondering what they will do for that length of time.
