Welcome to Burketown

There are two more reasons to come. The barra fishing, either on the Albert River or 30km north at the Gulf, is legendary (the season runs from mid-January to the end of September). And along with Karumba, this is the best place in the world to witness the extraordinary ‘morning glory’ cloud phenomenon.

These are the traditional lands of the Gangalidda and Garawa peoples.
