Home / About us

Tarntipi Homelands Aboriginal Corporation is a family-owned and run business on Bathurst Island, the smallest of the Tiwi Islands, off the coast of Darwin, NT.

We offer cultural training for non-Tiwi people to better connect to our culture and to Indigenous culture more broadly. We invite you to come and spend time in our family and our culture.

You can reach the islands on a 30 minute flight from Darwin and there is also a ferry that travels between Darwin and Bathurst Island three times a week.

An eco-friendly bush camp has been established on Bathurst Island, the smallest of the Tiwi Islands, approximately 15 minutes drive from Wurrumiyanga. This is the main township and where the plane and ferry drop visitors. Tarntipi Bush Camp provides a beautiful, nature- based setting, one kilometre from the gorgeous Tarntipi Beach – an ideal venue for the delivery of cross cultural training. A nearby fresh water hole, Mudlangapi, provides opportunity for a dip.

The campsite is in a ‘bush’ setting with eco-friendly amenities including:

  • Toilets
  • Showers
  • Eco tents
  • Kitchen area
  • Camp fire area
