History

Karumba – Yesterday – Today – Tomorrow

Yesterday

In the 1870s a telegraph station was built on the site of the present town of Karumba – this was during the gold mining boom in the Gulf.  The overland telegraph line ran to the Gilbert River, Mt Surprise and on to the more populated centres on the East Coast.  Initially the settlement was known simply as Norman Mouth being at the entrance of the Norman River into the Gulf waters. http://karumba.qld.au/history/

The Karumba Progress Association is a not for profit incorporated body representing the residents of the Karumba area.  This includes community, business, services and the organisation strives to work closely with the Carpentaria Shire Council, Gulf Savannah Development Organisation and other key bodies in the local and regional area. http://karumba.qld.au/
