The Tiwi Islands are a unique and fascinating destination, which, until recently, has flown under the radar. The Tiwi Islands provide travellers with the rare opportunity to experience one of the oldest surviving cultures in the world. The Tiwi people have lived on the islands for thousands of years, and their culture is one of the oldest surviving cultures in the world. They have a unique way of life, with a strong connection to the land and sea and a rich art, music, and dance tradition. Anyone wanting to experience this way of life must join a tour, or if you’re travelling independently, you must apply for a permit.

Once you’ve secured permission to step on the island, embrace the stunning natural landscapes, including pristine beaches, dense rainforests, and rugged cliffs. Visitors to the Tiwi Islands can enjoy various activities, including fishing, camping, hiking, and wildlife watching.

As for accommodations, the options are sparse unless you’re a fisherman. But one destination is dedicated to lodging tourists, and it’s pretty spectacular.
