Seisia

Seisia is Australia's most northerly community and departure point for a range of marine based activities - day trips with fishing guides, tours to explore the Torres Strait Islands or a walk to the end of the jetty, the social epicentre of the community. You can also do it yourself - there's a boat ramp to launch small vessels while dinghies can be hired from nearby New Mapoon.

There is a popular beachfront camping ground with a budget lodge and seaside self-contained cabins. Give yourself the time for a lazy conversation, an opportunity of sharing moments with the locals. Adjust to northern time, where the day is measured not by the clock but by the flow of people and nature.

Supply vessels unload cargo at this port and vehicles and passengers are taken on board to cruise back to Cairns through the Great Barrier Reef islands. This one-way land, return-sea option offers a comprehensive insight into this part of the world or you could use the Peddells ferry to explore the wonders of Thursday Island.

Seisia has a petrol station with vehicle and boat fuel supplies, hire cars, a taxi service, well-stocked supermarket, mechanical repair shops and an airstrip 17 kilometres to the south.

Seisia is one of five communities of the Northern Peninsula Area Regional Shire Council: Bamaga, Injinoo, New Mapoon and Umagico. All communities in this area are only minutes apart.

The Northern Peninsula Area has an Alcohol Management Plan (AMP). AMPs aim to reduce alcohol-related violence. AMPs vary from community to community. They include alcohol restrictions, home brew bans and dry place declarations within a 'restricted area'.

Penalties apply for possessing or attempting to bring illegal alcohol into a restricted area.

To find out more about AMPs for each community, visit the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Multicultural Affairs web site.
