Normanton Information

Located just south of the Gulf of Carpentaria, along the Norman River, lies the historical little town of Normanton.

The wide streets and old buildings showcase a warm and friendly township, with a small population of people eager to welcome any visitors.

The most notable feature of the town is Krys the Crocodile, a life-size statue of the largest salt water crocodile ever captured which is 8.64 metres long. The statue is one of Australia’s famous ‘Big Things’, and was shot in the Norman River.

Life in Normanton revolves around this river, where fishing for barramundi and salmon is a popular activity. Take a leisurely cruise along the river upon one of Normanton’s fishing charters or cruises.

The annual Normanton Barra Classic is usually held over the Easter weekend and brings many visitors to the small town for a weekend filled with fun and fishing.

The Normanton Rodeo and Show is another event enticing a large number of visitors and is usually held over the Queen’s birthday long weekend in early June. The rodeo weekend starts with an exciting street parade, and then the show opens at the Normanton Rodeo Grounds where you can view displays of local produce, handicrafts, cooking and photography.

Normanton plays service to large cattle grazing areas, and is also surrounded by fascinating wetlands. Hundreds of bird species can be found, with locals claiming their beauty has to be seen to be believed.

Call upon the old gaol remains for a peek into the past, then swing by one of the local pubs or clubs for a meal. A range of accommodation is available to suit any budget in Normanton, including hotels, motels and caravan parks.
