Trip to the Torres Strait Islands

If a group of women (8 friends) wanted to do a month long trip to the Torres Strait Islands, what would be the best way for them to go about it? Itinerary ideas, accommodation, method of travel etc. Anyone been there, done that?

If you were comfortable with driving 4WD then this is a great way to get to the Cape - Bamaga, Injinoo etc.

You could do a 4WD tour - eg Billy Tea Tours or something like that, will get you to the tip.

From the tip you can take the ferry to Thursday Island (TI). Punsand Bay camp grounds has a regular ferry service to TI. There are boat operators that can take you to the other islands.

You can catch a Qantaslink flight to Horn Island from Cairns or you could charter a plane to fly you to Bamaga.

Hope that gets you started. Went to Bamaga a couple of times when i was living in the Cape. TI is a great place and would love to go back.
