What’s in a name?

Yagurli means fish in our language. Moungibi (Burketown) is well known for its fishing- this is one of the main drawcards for visitors to the Gulf area so we thought it was a fitting name along with the barramundi logo as they both represent our land and culture.

Spot crocs in the Albert River

In our culture crocodiles have the most unbreakable, undefeatable spirit on the whole planet. Gambumanda (Albert River) is home to salties, you might spot a few on our Malara Fishing Charter or Gambumanda Sunset cruise

The Morning Glory Cloud

During the months of September and October, the rare meteorological phenomenon referred to as the Morning Glory Cloud rolls across the Gulf and can be observed above the skies in Moungibi (Burketown). Gangalidda traditional owner Murrandoo Yanner said his people believe the mabuntha (morning glory cloud) was created by Walalu, the Rainbow Serpent, and is of great cultural significance.
