Information

Normanton, is a small cattle town in the north of the state of Queensland, Australia. Established in 1868, Normanton boomed during the gold rush of the Croydon gold fields. A wonderful reminder of those early days is the Gulflander train, fully operational today and running weekly tourist trips between the two towns. Today, Normanton supports the surrounding cattle stations and communities and is a good spot for keen barramundi fisherpeople.

The town's population is 1447, over half of whom are indigenous Australians (2001 census). The town is one terminus of the isolated Normanton - Croydon Railway, which was built during gold rush days in the 1890s. The Gulflander motor train operates once a week. The shire is the administrative centre of Carpentaria Shire Council.

Among Normanton's most notable features is a statue of a 8.64m long salt water crocodile, the largest ever shot. Barramundi and salmon may also be caught in the river.
