Krys the Normanton Crocodile

Everything in the outback is BIG: the distances you have to travel, the size of their wet season, the open plains and the wildlife. An example of just how big the critters in the Gulf can get is conveniently on display in the LEW Henry Park, behind the Council Chambers, in Normanton. Believe me, you can’t miss this! This large, life size model of a saltwater crocodile will pretty much guarantee you behave with water safety first and foremost in your mind during your Gulf of Carpentaria visit. “Krys” the crocodile measures nearly 9m long and 4m wide! He was shot in the 1950s by a local lady called Krystina Pawloski.
