Spend a day exploring the Tiwi Islands and immerse yourself in Aboriginal culture. Start the day bright and early and head on over to Cullen Bay Ferry Terminal to board the "Pacific Cat," a comfortable and modern ferry. The journey will take around 2 hours - perfect time for you to get some shut eye in preparation for your long day ahead! Once you arrive at Bathurst Island, meet up with your guide who will teach you everything you need to know about the Aboriginal community of Nguiu. Your first stop: the Museum. There, you'll see interesting displays and artifacts featuring traditional artwork depicting the Tiwi 'dreamtime' stories. You'll also learn about the colorful history of the early mission days, and how the Tiwi have integrated their culture with Christianity. Next, enjoy morning tea with some of the ladies of the Tiwi people. Watch as they work on their weaving and painting, and when they demonstrate their dances and perform several ceremonies for their guests. From there, follow your guide through the world famous Tiwi arts and crafts co-operatives, and get a chance to see the artists at work! Here, you can also purchase some souvenirs to take home! Finally, end your tour with a stop at a picturesque lookout and burial site. Learn about the rituals associated with the burial poles (Pukamani poles). At around 3:00pm, head back to the ferry for your return trip to Darwin - the end of a fantastic and immersive full day tour.
