Hello to everyone, We would like to update you all  regarding our Live Mudcrab Orders. We are now into our 9th week of road closures up here in Karumba. We really appreciate your patience at this time. Once our roads are reopened hopefully in another 2 weeks, we will be in touch with those who have placed their Orders along with our regular weekly Customers and will be ready to go once our roads are reopened. We will then recommence our Orders out all around Australia to each and everyone.

It has been a fantastic WET SEASON something we haven't had for quite a very long time. So it will be a fantastic Crab Season for all. Exciting to get back into crabbing for the year.


Cheers Mark & Julianne          25th February, 2023. Updated.
