Tiwi by Design - Tiwi Islands Day Tour
Immerse yourself in this premium SeaLink Tiwi Islands art and culture day tour.
A highly personalised experience; this leisurely walking tour visits all the places of interest with your friendly Tiwi guide. After disembarking in the Aboriginal community of Wurrumiyanga on Bathurst Island, you'll be escorted to Tiwi Design where local artists and dancers will perform a formal Welcome to Country with a smoking ceremony and totem dances.
Enjoy a typical Tiwi morning tea of damper and a cuppa while getting to know some of the Tiwi Island community members. Explore the Mission Precinct with your knowledgeable guide telling stories of life and culture in the Tiwi Islands.
Visit the Patakijiyali Museum with your guide to learn the history of the Mission days, the Tiwi Creation story, Tiwi involvement in WWII and most importantly, (to the Tiwi!), celebrated football players!
After a rest and lunch in the shade, it’s time to re-visit Tiwi Design and participate in an exclusive ‘behind-the-scenes’ screen printing workshop. Choose from contemporary or traditional Tiwi design to print onto a take-home t-shirt, tea towel or fabric – a wonderful souvenir of your Tiwi visit.
