“Camping with Teddy and his family on Bathurst Island was one of those ‘life-changing’ experiences that come along rarely. In a few short days, I learnt more about Indigenous culture than I have in any other context. We would all benefit from such an eye-opening and educational experience of the Tiwi people’s heritage as this.”
Bookings available by enquiry only.
Bookings will not be confirmed until March 2024.

Tarntipi Homelands Aboriginal Corporation acknowledges and thanks Tumarripi Remfrey (CEO and founder at Mumpara) for his support of the vision and development of Tarntipi Bush Camp.
It is this type of support which contributes to a strong future.
In Tiwi culture, when someone passes you are not allowed to speak their name until their Pukumani ceremony.
So, as my namesake passed, my name is Tumarripi until his ceremony.
