It’s a great starting point to visit Thursday Island and experience the local culture, unspoilt beaches, fresh seafood and laid-back lifestyle. On your stay, be sure to visit the Torres Strait Heritage Museum and Art Gallery to see the displays on the pearl diving era, Indigenous history and artefacts - and if you’re after a spot of fishing, Horn Island Wharf is the place to be and is popular with local fishermen.
