Ocean Ports of Call

Elcho Island - NT - Australia Highlights:
Cave art sites, Jensen Bay
Elcho Island is the southernmost of the the Wessel Islands, a chain of small islands in the Arafura Sea 75 miles (120 km) off the northeast of the Northern Territory on the western side of the Gulf of Carpentaria. A special feature of Elcho is the Morning Star poles, feather decorated funeral rite poles each distinctive to their clan groups. Yolngu Art is a reflection of the past and allows the individual to find and maintain a connection with the guiding presence of the spirit that represents the past, present and future. Each art work is based upon inherited designs which originate with ancestral beings that created the land.

The island has several settlements including Galiwin'ku, the largest Aboriginal community in northeast Arnhem Land. Located on a cliff top south east of the Galiwin'ku town centre is an Art Centre with spectacular views over Mission Beach, Abbott Island and the surrounding sea.
