Itinerary
After a 20 minute scenic flight you arrive at 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.

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).

Set out for a scenic drive through the wilderness of Bathurst Island. Enjoy lunch and visit a local waterhole and pristine beach.

Learn about traditional bush tuckers, bush medicine and natural fibres and dyes on your return to the community for your return flight to Darwin. (L)

Wonderful experience. I have always wanted to go to the Tiwi Islands.
Loved the flight, loved the museum, but the best part was talking with the ladies at the respite camp. They were so friendly and showed us their intricate weaving of multicoloured baskets. Loved seeing them do traditional gathering...of shells..mudwhelks...and barbecuing them on the fire for lunch. A good balance of activities.

Great day on Bathurst Island. Our guide, Tobias, was very good, with a lot of knowledge. Love to do it again sometime.

a fabulous experience - very well organised and so informative and stimulating. We felt so embraced by the warmth and graciousness of the Tiwi Islanders. Jane and Josh
