Cairns to Normanton – The People
You’ll enjoy getting to know the people of the Gulf Savannah. A practical mob, most are very happy to have a chat and offer advice or assistance. Strike up a conversation with the locals in the pub, roadhouse staff or kids fishing by the river.
Aboriginal culture and land management is making a great comeback, offering more opportunities to connect with the traditional owners of the region.
Communities are actively involved in their futures, through land management organisations such as the Northern Gulf Resource Management Group, business Progress Associations and sporting clubs.
