Warm days and warm nights, that about sums up Normanton's climate and we love it! We have walked around the town each morning, afternoons are better spent quietly sitting and reading or having a swim in the camp swimming pool. The 'southerners' come up here and sit in their caravans with the 'aircon' on, seems a waste of fuel getting here. Some lucky Normanton resident won a share of Saturday Lotto 1st Division last Saturday, we haven't received an invitation to the celebrations so far, we are leaving tomorrow morning.

I am only "Snack Size" for Krys the Crocodile.

Most of the businesses in Normanton are Pubs. The middle pub is called The Central.

Is this sign necessary, this pooch only wanted us to give him a scratch.

The Purple Pub is at the southern end of the main street and directly opposite The Tourist Park. We had a good meal here one night.

Some of the gardens in Normanton are quite colourful.

The Shire of Carpentaria Offices.

The old Burns Philp Stores are now used as the Library and Tourist Information Offices.

Near the north end of town is The Albion Hotel.

The Norman River looking up stream at High Tide from the old single lane bridge.

The old single lane bridge is now set up as a fishing platform. There are shelters, overhead lights, water taps, fish cleaning tables and wood BBQ's to cook your fish.
