The Land

Be inspired by the amazing landscapes that are considered sacred sites by the traditional custodians of the land.

Thursday Island is the main hub for the 274 predominately remote islands of the Torres Strait Island group. As well as being a top fishing spot, you can experience the island culture of the Torres Strait Islanders here.

Back on the mainland in Tropical North Queensland, you can take a 4WD adventure to ancient Aboriginal sites in Cape York, visit the Daintree rainforest interpretive centre or source your own fresh seafood the traditional way on the Great Barrier Reef.

Outback Queensland is home to some of the most spectacular National Parks around. One of the best picks is Carnarvon National Park where Aboriginal history is revealed through the park's rock art sites. 

Lawn Hill National Park is considered to have one of the longest continual occupations by Aboriginals, dating back at least 17,000 years and may extend beyond 30,000 years.
