Come visit us on Sunday March 19th 2017 for a fun day of footy and art!
"The Tiwi Islands – a 30-minute plane ride north of Darwin – are famous for their art and football, both of which are showcased at the annual grand final and art sale."
The Tiwi Islands Art Sale coincides each year with the Tiwi Islands Football Grand Final. This massive family gathering provides a rare opportunity for people to visit Bathurst Island and buy Tiwi art and crafts at community prices.
The art sale on Sunday begins at 9am concluding around 1pm when the Football Grand Final kicks off, one of the Territory’s most eagerly anticipated sporting events. Many players elect to play barefoot and the game is fast and skillful.
Munupi Artists will showcase their works at the primary school main hall/Basketball court just off the main road.
The normal requirement for a visitor permit is waived for this day.
Venue: Catholic Primary School main Hall (just off the main road in Wurrumiyanga, Bathurst Island)
