Thursday Island Cruises

Found in Queensland, Australia, Thursday Island (also known as the port of pearls) is a place full of culture, history and scenic views. Relive the history and culture of the Torres Strait Islanders at the ‘Gab Titui Cultural Centre' or visit the ‘Thursday Island Cemetery' which contains the tombs of the Japanese divers who passed away during the Pearling Industry. The largest museum in Northern Australia, ‘Torres Strait Heritage Museum' is where the pearlings, legends, myths, and culture of the Torres Strait Islanders are celebrated. For panoramic views of the surrounding area, head to ‘Milman Hill'. Standing at 341 feet, it's the highest point on Thursday Island.

Pearl shell and pearls are harvested off the waters here – making pearls a favourite item to bring home. And situated on the ‘Engineer's Wharf' is the Jetty Shop, which sells souvenir items, local crafts, and, of course, pearls.

Thursday Island's local currency is the Australian Dollar (AUD). Thursday Island is 9 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +9).
