Travel Brochure
Thursday Island - Cities, Towns and Localities
Thursday (Wai-Ben) Island sits off the northern point of the Cape York Peninsula of Australia. It is located in the Torres Strait, the body of water that separate Australia from the Melanesian island of New Guinea. To the west is the Arafura Sea and the Coral Sea to the east.

Thursday Island sits among a cluster of islands that include Prince of Wales Island and Horn Island (those flying here will land at the airport on Horn Island).

Visitors to the region can expect an island adventure with the choice of fishing, bush walking, swimming or just lazing on the beaches. A great way to explore is to book yourself on one of the local tours and charters and let the tour operator tell you about this fabulous part of the world.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.

Northern Blue Charters
• Thursday Island, Torres Strait, Far North Queensland 4875
• Ph: 03 9530 9525 • Mobile: 0407 126 755 • Email
• Live-A-Board fishing experience. Come aboard and explore your own fishing paradise!

Northern Blue offers a range of amazing fishing landscapes to explore in the Torres Strait. If fly-fishing or popper casting is your thing, an island hopping adventure will suit. Each Island will impress you with its own striking feature – a rock bar, massive sand flat, bombora system or deep drop off into a green channel. The waterways act as freeways for schools of giant trevally, sea turtles, manta rays and sharks. Sight fishing for trevally around this area is awesome – and not for the faint hearted. Your popper will be set upon by veracious trevally, out muscling each other for a quick feed, then diving deep to test angler’s strength and skill.

On the rising tide you can wade amongst black-tip reef sharks as they herd shoals of mullet into deep water. Bonefish anglers will be keen to flick a fly across the sand flats – the local mullet fishermen tell stories of ‘large invisible fish’ bursting through their soft, hand made nets.
