Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach THURSDAY ISLAND

THURSDAY ISLAND

While it may not be the largest island – a taxi can take you on a bespoke tour of the entire island in less than an hour – Thursday Island is a vibrant jewel in Australia’s crown. Located adrift from the northern tip of the Australian mainland, it’s one of the tropical Torres Strait islands, which are scattered between the mainland and Papua New Guinea. View more

A gaping deep water port means the location is ideal for fishing, but you’ll have to avoid the temptation to swim in its idyllic seas – the waters are renowned for crocodiles, sharks and stingers.

Glimpse of Thursday Island

Discover why Thursday Island is one of the most enjoyable places to visit with a culture that has been developing for over 2,000 years. Be introduced to the world's friendliest locals and an azure seascape of unparalleled beauty. Learn of the island's days as a rough and tumble Port of Pearls and how it played a strategic role in Australia's military history.


Green Fort Hill

Depart the pier for a short transfer to Green Hill Fort, built between 1891-1893 as part of Australia's defence against a possible Russian invasion. It was eventually decommissioned some time in 1927 and the buildings were demolished and the guns were spiked. Green Hill is a small grassy hill about 58 metres (190 feet) above sea level at the western end of Thursday Island. Visit T.I.'s coastal military installation for sweeping panoramic views of surrounding islands and step into the Fort's underground rooms and tunnels where previous keepsakes from the island's past are now on display. Spot birdlife and native plants as we take a scenic drive around the timeless isle they call Old T.I.
