TI Part 2

Thursday Island


Thursday Island (TI) is the capital of the 70 odd islands in the Torres Strait so as to speak.  It is an island of about 4 square kilometres,  has a population of about 3,800 and is the regional headquarters for 36 Government Departments, yet it still manages to be one of the most laid back places around.  If you are expecting the classic tropical island with beaches, palm trees and flash looking women sun baking topless are you in for a surprise.  I didn't see any of the aforementioned and believe me I looked, in fact we looked all over the Cape for no result.

This Post Office is one of the few that actually carries its name most are just labeled Post Office.  Express Post from here to Melbourne if Posted on Monday arrives on the next Wednesday.

The See Hop Store carries virtually everything from manchester to electrical goods and has everything.  The window display is fascinating

Beach Road TI style in the peak hour but it is surprising just how much activity there is with ferries, HM Customs, Queensland Police (land and water), water taxis, visiting and fishing boats and last but not least the Royal Australian Navy.
