The Tiwi Islands

The Tiwi Islands are located 80 km north of Darwin in the Arafura Sea. Tiwi people have occupied the area for at least 40,000 years.

The Tiwi Islands consist of two large islands, Bathurst Island and Melville Island, and nine smaller uninhabited islands. The largest community is Wurrumiyanga (Nguiu) on Bathurst Island. On Melville Island there are two smaller communities, Pirlangimpi (Garden Point) and Milikapiti (Snake Bay). Pickatarmoor on Melville Island is home to Tiwi College. The population is around 2,500 of whom 90% are Aboriginal.

The Tiwi economy is based on local government, education, community services, arts, tourism, football, forestry and transport. Investment in Tiwi forestry and Port Melville has created more employment opportunities for Tiwi people.

TITEB is one of the Islands’ main employers, employing 71 staff of which 53 (75%) are Tiwi. We work closely with employers to ensure our services are aligned with employment needs on the Islands and our job seekers are training for the right jobs.
