Itinerary
Take the 2 hour cruise aboard the “Pacific Cat” over to Bathurst Island.

Here you are met by your local Guide to be taken on a journey through the progressive, modern day Aboriginal community of Wurrumiyanga.

Visit the Museum with its interesting displays of traditional art and depictions of the Tiwi ‘dreamtime’ stories and Early Mission Precinct with its unique Tiwi style Catholic Church. Hear about the colourful history of the early mission days and learn how the Tiwi people have blended their culture with Christianity. Be taken through the successful Arts and Crafts Centres and see where the artists work. You also have the opportunity to purchase Tiwi arts and crafts and screen-printed fabric at Island prices.

At morning tea we spend time with some Tiwi Ladies enjoying billy tea and damper while they work on their painting. Your guides and the ladies also demonstrate their totem dances and perform a smoking ceremony to bless the visitors and explain the meanings behind them.

Learn some of the complex rituals associated with the Pukamani (burial ceremony) before being taken back to the ferry landing to re board your vessel, departing Bathurst Island for Darwin at 3 pm.

NB Lunch can be purchased back on board the vessel after your morning touring on the island.

The ferry ride was fantastic but there was no opportunity to speak to the local residents on the Island. It would have been interesting to visit the school and also to chat to locals .
