From Darwin: Tiwi Islands Aboriginal Culture Tour with Lunch
- Duration: 10 hours
The people in Tiwi Island are very friendly. Our guide Kevin gave us a comprehensive overview about the culture and history of the island as well as shared some exciting local stories. The highlight of the visit was definitely the workshop part when everybody could prepare his/her own Aboriginal pattern- painted take-away kitchen towel or T-shirt. It is worth choosing that option from the tour selection even if it is a bit more expensive than the basic cultural tour. The ferry ride is quite long unfortunately, 2 hours and 20 mins each way - this is the only inconvenience of the trip, yet it is absolutely worth going.
Really enjoyed the friendliness of the local people. Kevin is a great Tour Leader, very informative ( and patient). Museum is amazing and well set out to show-case the history and culture of the Island. The history of the Church and its interaction with the local culture as Kevin explained it, enlightening!
Laid back day out. Loved the 2.5 hour ferry ride and the people. Felt looked after and enjoyed the stories that Kevin, our guide, told us. Very entertaining. Really pleased with the results of my screen printing.
The boxes used for the lunch provided were all just thrown away. So much of wasteage, even if it’s recycled material. Perhaps use reusable containers instead.
Amazing experience getting to learn about the Tiwi culture! Plus got to make our own piece of art!
