Welcome to Gee-Dee's Family Cabins

Sharon and Jeff Batt welcome you to Gee Dee's Family Cabins at Karumba Point, affordable family-style, couples or fisherperson accommodation on the Gulf of Carpentaria at the mouth of the Norman River.

This is the only stretch of beach that can be reached by a sealed road in the Gulf Savannah region. Well known for its fishing and prawning, this area is also rich in bird-life, particularly after the wet season. Karumba was once a base for Empire flying boats on their journey from Sydney to London and later as a Royal Australian Air Force base for Catalina Flying Boats. Karumba Point has a history that goes back as far as 1872.

At Karumba Point accommodation travellers who have been just about everywhere in Australia will tell you there is nowhere with quite the same atmosphere as Karumba in winter. It's friendly and totally laidback. Some people claim it's the best spot in the world to be sitting while you're watching the sunset.

The whole mood is relaxed as travellers, fishermen, birdwatchers and locals gather in the late afternoon to enjoy the "million dollar sunset" across the Gulf of Carpentaria.
