Discover Karumba...

Karumba has fully sealed road access via the Savannah Way from the East Coast or the Matilda Way from Mount Isa/Cloncurry/Julia Creek - so getting to the coastline in the bottom of the Gulf of Carpentaria very accessible.  For the more adventurous you can come across from the Cape York connecting roads or try the Savannah Way via Borrooloola and Burketown -always check road conditions.  

Whether you are into fishing, photography, flora, fauna, seafood, adventure or just travelling seeing Australia – Karumba can surprise and capture your imagination.  With the rich and colourful history and heritage from the early days of Burke & Wills, the discovery of prawns and start of a seafood industry, pastoral/cattle industry and mining – there’s a lot to find out about when you visit.

Staying at Ash’s, you are walking distance to everything – boat ramps, coastline/beach walks, bird watching hot spots, walking tracks, Sunset Tavern, fuel and Karumba airport (we do free airport pickups for guests staying with us)

However you travel – cycling, motorbike, car, 4WD, caravan or other – take care on the roads – give up the road to trucks when safe to do so–and keep a keen eye out for wildlife – for instance around Karumba there are literally hundreds of small wallabies who line the roads around sunrise and sunset and through the evenings and arrive safe to enjoy all Karumba and the Gulf has to offer.
