The Torres Strait is a place of richly unique customs and cultures; a landscape like no other, with over 100 islands strung out between the northern tip of Queensland and Papua New Guinea, only 16 of which are inhabited. Surrounded by glittering waters, teaming with fish, crowned by coral cays and sandy beaches with no foot prints; why shouldn’t we think we’re not a part of the rest of the world? I mean how remote can you get?
