NTFL Premier League Games on the Tiwi Islands

SeaLink NT will be running special services for NTFL Premier League games being played at Wurrumiyanga Oval on Bathurst Island this season.

Locals say that football is a religion on the Tiwi Islands and with 900 participants from a population of 2600, the Tiwi Islands has the highest participation rate in Australia with 35%. 

The Tiwi Bombers joined the NTFL Premier League in 2006, the first all-indigenous team to play in a major competition. 

The pilgrimage to the Tiwi Islands for a game of footy is on many a bucket list and this 19/20 NTFL season you have three opportunities left to tick it off: 

Saturday 7th December – Tiwi Bombers vs Darwin Buffaloes @ Wurrumiyanga Oval

Saturday 14th December – Tiwi Bombers vs Wanderers @ Wurrumiyanga Oval
