Normanton has a much photographed statue in the main street which is a life size replica of the biggest crocodile ever captured in Australia. “Krys” the crocodile, named after the Polish hunter who shot it in 1957, measures 8.63 metres. It's hard to miss and pretty hard not to stop and take a photo of it/with it.

Really good to see. History in this part of the world is fantastic. A bit of a bucket list, especially now.

He was a big boy. We were amazed at the length of his embalmed body which is on display beside the Main Street. The best time to take photos is in the morning as the sun will be behind him in the afternoon.

Enjoyed our trip to Normanton with Krys the Crocodile as the highlight. Hard to believe a crocodile that size actually lived. The Purple Pub was also worth a visit and also a notable landmark of the town.

Worth looking at when in town. You can't miss him. Apparently made to scale even if slightly exaggerated it is one hell of a beast. Would never want to cross one half that size never mind one this big. There is a picture in the caravan park of it when captured.
