Guide to the Tiwi Islands
With a thriving Aboriginal arts culture, secluded fishing lodges and a passion for football, the Tiwi Islands promise a holiday like no other.
A unique part of Australia, the Tiwi Islands are an off-the-beaten-track destination for intrepid travellers. The islands are renowned for the excellent fishing opportunities and the locals are welcoming. Almost 90 per cent of residents are of Aboriginal descent and you can meet some of them on a range of cultural tours.
