Wurrumiyanga ferry port in Tiwi Islands connects you with Cullen Bay in Australia with a choice of up to 3 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Wurrumiyanga to Cullen Bay crossing is from 2 hours 30 minutes and the crossing is operated by Sealink Northern Territory.
Wurrumiyanga, also known as Nguiu, is also a community on the south coast of Bathurst Island, located in the Northern Territory in Australia. The only ferry route departing the port is to Cullen Bay across the Beagle Gulf, a port nearby the popular city of Darwin.
A long, complicated history has hindered the community in its quest to compete with neighbouring Australian resorts, though Wurrumiyanga is slowly building its way to prominence. Populated mostly with Aboriginals, the community functions at a relatively slow pace, with simple infrastructure and only a few amenities. There is only one club/bar in the region that closes fairly early in the evening, meaning the nights often exude an incredibly calm and peaceful atmosphere.
Only around 2000 people reside in the commune, meaning that there is a close sense of community that resonates throughout the spacious streets. A couple of supermarkets cater for the necessities, and there is a fast-food takeaway should you be feeling particularly peckish.
Most choose to walk as the commune is fairly small.
