Normanton Things to Do

  • VISIT THE "PURPLE PUB""

    NORMANTON When first driving into Normanton it is like many inland towns...small and with a personality of its own...The first thing that comes to mind that I noticed is the huge Big Baramundi"statue of the famed local fish that is not only great to catch( if you are an angler) but also wonderful tasting fish to eat and the most sought after fish...

    Normington Central Pub - best Barra feed in town!!

    by aussirose Written Nov 14, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Barramundi!! A huge fish caught up the top end of Australia. Fishermen rave about it!! It's expensive in the southern parts of Australia. Great game fish and people pay big bucks to go Barra fishing all around the top end of Australia.....including hubby ;o)

    Well I wasn't impressed with the Barra I had tasted so far! I'd much rather eat whiting or shark.

    .....That is until I ate Barra at the Central Pub in Normington!! ....WoW!! It was delightful!!...and I totally recommend ordering a fresh feed of Barramundi here!! ....All feed back welcome ;o)

Normanton Warnings and Dangers

  • BEWARE OF WILDLIFE WHEN DRIVING HERE..

    NORMANTON When driving up this way you will notice that the roads/highway tend to be a lot narrower and it is important to slow down ...There always is a big chance that wildlife along with feral animals will at any time run out of the bush onto the road.. The last time that I was driving up here I was really disturbed by the amount of "roadkill"...

  • CARRY A GOOD MOSQUITO REPELLANT

    When travelling in the northern part of Australia, anywhere really across the "top end" here in Queensland or the Northern Territory or Western Australia always carry and use a reliable Insect and Mosquito repellant.Especially in the evening and by the water and rivers...Dengue fever is now in Northern Australia..
