The Tiwi Islands are a must-do on any Northern Territory itinerary.
Comprising Bathurst and Melville Islands, with a population of around 2,500 people, the Tiwi Islands are only 80km north of Darwin and very accessible via the 2.5-hour comfortable SeaLink ferry service. The Tiwi Islands people are known for their love for art, footy, and fishing.. Most of the residents are Tiwi and you will have the opportunity to meet and learn about Tiwi culture on our Tiwi Islands tours.
The SeaLink ferry service operates to Wurrumiyanga (formerly known as Nguiu) on Bathurst Island. No permit is required to visit Wurrumiyanga if you are on a SeaLink tour, however, if you venture further afield, please contact the Tiwi Land Council for your permit as the Tiwi Islands are private land.
