Tiwi Islands Footy Final with Sea Darwin

Sea Darwin has travelled to the Tiwi Islands Footy Final and Art Show every year since 2009. We’ve had glassy seas, we’ve dodged storms and we’ve ocean rafted across the Timor Sea. At times we’ve been accompanied by dolphins, we’ve seen whales and we’ve had flying fish land in the boat. We’ve rescued a ghost net and had white horses gallop around the boat! But whatever the journey has been, those on board have always been on a mission. The mission has been to witness one of the iconic events in modern Australian history, the annual Tiwi Footy Grand Final and to cast their eves over some of the nations most intriguing and evocative art work, all for sale for a fraction of the price charged in mainland art galleries.
