In addition to its natural beauty, Tiwi Island also has a rich biodiversity as it is home to 56 species of birds, crocodiles, dolphins, sea turtles and dugongs.
The Tiwis, mainly indigenous people living in isolation on this island for thousands of years, have "nurtured" their distinct culture and language passed down through generations.
Perhaps most unique in traditional Tiwi culture are colorful wooden columns (called pukumani) drawn from natural dyes for decorative use in cemetery funeral rites.
Activities such as dancing and music and performing arts are performed by the Tiwi Aboriginal people at the burial site to help the soul of the deceased (called mobiditi) be at peace.
