Worth a Trip: Creek Town

A day trip to Creek Town is an immersion in the surrounding watery landscape, and the rich history of the area.

Once there, get in touch with Itaeyo (0803 741 2894), who will show you the prefab colonial buildings and artifacts, traditional architecture and the king's palace (bring booze as a gift for the king). Also learn about the legacy of Scottish missionary Mary Slessor, who ended the traditional practice of killing twins.

You can reach Creek Town by boat (N400) from the wharf on Marina road, leaving around 7am and noon, coming back at 4pm.
