Red Desert, Endless Sky &  Tiwi by Design

Music has the power to transport you to another time and place, and this very special collaboration will have you feeling the dust beneath your feet and basking in the glow of the red desert moon.

Red Desert, Endless Sky: Songs from the Centre is an evocative collaboration that embodies the inescapable dramatic beauty of the desert and celebrates a place these artists call home.

Complete your Top End Cultural Experience - take to ferry with Sealink and travel to the Tiwi Islands. Enjoy a typical Tiwi morning tea of damper and a cuppa whilst getting to know some of the Tiwi Island community members.

Explore the Patakijiyali Museum and the Mission Precinct with your knowledgeable guide telling stories of life and culture in the Tiwi Islands.
