About Australia

Australia is the 6th largest country in the world, situated between the Pacific and the Indian Ocean.

Surrounding the 35,000 km mainland coast are numerous islands including the enormous Tasmania to the south and the world-renowned, beautiful Whitsundays to the northeast.

With nearly all the major settlements situated along the coast, you can find beachfront hangouts, superb seafood and trendy art scenes in all the big cities. That’s not all, though, as the vast outback awaits those looking for peace and quiet away from the bustling tourist hotspots, which is also home to the spectacular Ayers Rock, known by its aboriginal name of ‘Uluru’.

As an isolated island country fringed by islands and archipelagos, Australia offers a great number of domestic ferry routes. Depending on where you are along the coast, a short ferry ride is all it takes to reach the Great Barrier Reef, Kangaroo Island, Tasmania and many more wonderful destinations.

About Tiwi Islands

The Tiwi Islands, consisting of Melville and Bathurst Island, fall within Australia’s Northern Territory, roughly eighty kilometres north of Darwin.

Occupying the islands for over seven thousand years, Aboriginals now make up ninety percent of the population on the ‘islands of smiles’. The lack of tourist facilities and foreign visitors has helped the coastline retain its immaculate beauty, comprising secluded beaches, waterfalls, rock pools and lush rainforest. Despite living predominantly traditional lifestyles, the locals love Aussie Rules football, with huge amounts of fans coming from mainland Australia for the grand-final in March. Creating beautiful arts and crafts is another popular pastime, the most common are burial poles and carvings of mythological figures, all of which can be viewed in the Patakijiyali Museum in Wurrumiyanga.

Darwin is the primary gateway to the Tiwi Islands, with a few ferries making the short journey each week, docking in Wurrumiyanga on the southeast tip of Bathurst Island.
