If you want to see a completely unique side

real discovery starts. You’ll see local artists,
weaving, painting, totem dances, a smoking
ceremony and a Tiwi burial site. You can
share some billy tea and damper, swim at a
local waterhole and learn about traditional
bush tucker, bush medicine and natural fibres
and dyes before returning to Darwin. (BL)
