Have done both but prefer the Normanton stay as oppossed to being super cramed at Karumba.

I quess the real question will be what time of the year. Peak hour at Karumba can be very heavy. If you do it as a day trip to watch the sunset be careful of wildlife on the trip back in the dark

We also prefer to stay in Normanton. Its not as busy and the Normanton Tourist Park also has a nice pool.

On one of our visits we booked accommodation for one night in Karumba. We combined this with a sunset cruise on the Norman River which we thoroughly enjoyed .

We did the gulf last year in July, we stayed at Karumba, we didn't book ahead and had no problems getting a spot, there was plenty of room and good shady sites at the Karumba Point tourist park we were there 5 days, very friendly,ring ahead if you want.

Karumba Point CP is brilliant

Go down the road and get a feed of Barra & Chips - bloody beautiful and cheap as, we made the mistake of ordering 2 pieces of fish each, one was enough

We've stayed twice at the Normanton park near the Purple Pub, and also had separate visits to two different parks at Karumba.
While we enjoy the Karumba sunset, much prefer the park and the township at Normanton.

hi greendog,
last june Kurumba CVP's were skin to skin and into overflow bare paddocks so we treated ourselves to 3 nights of air conditioned luxury right across the road from the kurumba point pub at Gone Fishing Apts . $100 per night can recommend
all up cost an extra $150 over a 6 week trip so pretty insignificant and scored heaps of browny points with swmbo .
cheers
