Lax Charters and Tours

Thursday Island, Torres Area

Experience the real Torres Strait in an intimate guided tour of Thursday Island, the 'hub' of the Torres Strait. Known to the locals simply as 'TI', Thursday Island is home to some of Australia's richest history.

As a friend of Lax Charters, you will be absorbed by the local indigenous culture and treated as a guest of the island, not a tourist.

A born and bred local with a lifetime of knowledge and expertise on the history and culture of the Torres Strait, Dirk Laifoo provides you with a rich commentary that is both entertaining and enthralling.
