The Tiwi Islands ferry departs Cullen Bay Ferry Terminal, located five minutes from Darwin’s city centre. Boarding commences at 7:30 AM for a prompt 8:00 AM departure. Bring a book, sit back and relax on the 2.5-hour journey to the Tiwi Islands, 80km north of Darwin. Sandwiches, pies, coffee, drinks and snack foods are available for purchase from the ferry kiosk.

Upon arrival, your local Tiwi guide will greet you on the beach and take you on a walking tour of the community. For those with mobility impairments, don’t be disheartened as it is only a few minutes’ walk between locations. From the ferry landing, wander up to Tiwi Design for a traditional welcome ceremony and morning tea ( and a cuppa). Your guide will then show you through the museum where you will learn of the culture and history of the Tiwi People.

On to the Catholic mission precinct before returning to Tiwi Design for and a ‘behind-the-scenes’ screen printing session with a local Tiwi artist. Create your own screen-printed Tiwi-style art piece to take home – a memento of your day on the Tiwi Islands. You also have the opportunity to purchase unique and traditional Tiwi artworks including paintings, fabrics, carving, pottery and clothing at island prices. Return to the ferry at 15:00 PM for the journey back to Darwin, arriving back in Cullen Bay at 5:45 PM.
