Welcome to Timbunke

Timbunke's cobwebby haus tambaran is a one-storey structure towards the west end of the village. A Lonely Planet author was the first non-local (and first woman) to ever set foot inside. You'll find some splendid examples of garamut drums, some with crocodile heads, some given birth to by female figures.

When tourist boats dock here, locals bring out artefacts and carvings for sale.
