Bathurst Island

Sunset over the red rock, white sand, and blue water at Bathurst Island, Tiwi Islands, Northern Territory, Australia. The Tiwi Islands are part of the Northern Territory of Australia, 80 km to the north of Darwin where the Arafura Sea joins the Timor Sea. They are inhabited by the Tiwi people, as they have been since before European settlement in Australia. The Tiwi are an Indigenous Australian people, culturally and linguistically distinct from those of Arnhem Land on the mainland just across the water.
