If you’re after a genuine Indigenous experience without the tacky trimmings of tourism, then try a Tiwi Islands cultural adventure.
The Aboriginal Community of Nguiu (pronounced new-you) has a population of almost 2000, and there you’ll be shown around town by a local guide, so you can try the local varieties of bush tucker – mangrove worm sounds nice – and learn about the Tiwi history and culture.
Spend some time with the women weaving and painting and then set out on a drive through the stunning Wilderness, stopping off at a local waterhole for a swim. A two-day camping tour starts at only $475, with flights from $170. Group sizes range form two to 25. For more information on this Aussie Adventure holiday, call 1300 721 405 or click here
