Welcome to Thursday Island & Horn Island

Horn Island is the air hub for the islands and the Cape, connected by regular ferries to nearby Thursday Island (TI). Prince of Wales Island is the largest of the group, but tiny TI (only 3 sq km) is the administrative capital, 30km off the Cape. Although it lacks its own freshwater supply, the island was selected for its deep harbour, sheltered port and proximity to major shipping channels.

Permission to visit outer islands may be required; contact the Torres Strait Regional Council.
