We drive out to Karumba on the Gulf of Carpentaria. This is to be our furthest point on this particular adventure. But the Sunset Hotel at the mouth of the Norman River has run out of beer, yep it truly is the pub with no beer. A gin and tonic just doesn’t quite cut it up here.
“Please bring your own carry bags as we are running out – no stock for a fortnight” says a Karumba shop sign. Like the pub with no beer, if you don’t get your ordering right when you’re this remote then you’re up the creek.
