This is a wonderfully unique experience and I’m so glad we booked it.
The welcome ceremony and cleansing was fantastic and I enjoyed that we got to join in. Vivian is a fabulous tour guide. She explained so much about the Tiwi culture and was a joy to listen to. I learnt so much.
The food was simple but tasty and the only downside to our huge group was that we didn’t really get to ‘chat’ with the elders like advertised which I would have loved to do.
The experience creating some artwork was intriguing and fun. So many unique designs to choose. I was lucky to have Nicole help me, not only is she talented but has a great sense of humour. I thoroughly loved creating my printed T Shirt with some help from Nicole and will treasure it forever.
The museum was great! Could have easily spent another 30 minutes in there reading- so much history and cultural information. I found it fascinating. And the famous church which is now retired, was lovely to sit in while listening to Vivian tell stories and cultural traditions. What a fabulous tour guide!
All in all, really worth the 5 star review!
But remember: get your boarding pass before getting on the ferry going back and don’t be late or you will be like us and have to stand for 2.5 hours because there were no seats available and people refused to move their bags from the middle seat. Sealink really didn’t care.
But Tiwi Designs= A++
