Karumba is getting set for a ten day festival starting tomorrow.
The town on the mouth of the Norman River in the Gulf of Carpentaria is set to party for its inaugural Outback by the Sea festival.
The 10-day long festival will combine the official opening of the hatchery at the Barramundi Discovery Centre with a free concert and activities before wrapping up with the annual Karumba Anglers Classic on the October long weekend.
The Saturday night concert at the barra centre is free but tickets are going fast and organisers say there probably won't be tickets on the door.
It will be seating only at the COVID safe event with performances from David Hudson, Tim Griffin and Split Image for a fantastic evening of blues, country and rock.
One of the more unusual items in the festival is ghost net art which raises awareness of the massive threat that ghost fishing nets lost at sea pose to marine life.
Talented Indigenous artists from the Pormpuraaw Art and Culture Centre will conduct a free workshop where participants will learn how to weave your own magic at an interactive morning workshop, or observe the artists at work in the afternoon demonstrations.
Free but book to participate at the Les Wilson Barramundi Discovery Centre from Tuesday to Thursday.
There will also be poetry and short story workshops, but you must register to attend.
