Welcome to exotic Thursday Island. Accompany us as we explore this
little known and fascinating Island. Little known because of her
ideal location in the Torres Strait, Far North Queensland. Fascinating
because one can stand and peer through the veil of time along streets
where little has changed in the past 100 years. We concentrate on
small group numbers so that you, the visitor, may have a more personal
interaction with your guide.
Let your leader, a member of a fifth generation family lead you on an historical and cultural experience
that is surpassed by none other. The tour is a dynamic blend of
accurate historical detail and actual personal accounts retold by
the guides. Visit sites from the highest point of Thursday Island
to an underground fort complex on Green Hill.
Stand in quiet contemplation beside the resting places of people
who gave their lives for the early growing pearling industry before
the Second World War in the Torres Strait. Discover the vital importance
of the pearling industry to the area. Hear the stories and walk
in the steps of those young men who were sent to the area in 1940
in a bid to provide some defence against enemy forces. Learn how
Thursday Island is embracing the future with itís wind turbines
providing some of the electricity on the island, and marvel at the
T.I. mystery ≠ why did Europeans settle on this small Island?
