Welcome to Normanton
Once the port for Croydon’s gold rush, Normanton boasts a broad and rather long main street lined with some colourful old buildings. These days it's a handy junction for Karumba- and Burketown-bound travellers, and the terminus for the Gulflander train. The Norman River produces whopping barramundi, with competitions and barra-focused events in April and May.
The traditional owners of the Normanton area are the Kukatj, Gkuthaarn and Kurtijar Aboriginal peoples, and they still make up nearly 60% of the population.
