We are coming towards the
end of the busiest part of the season, and even though
there are still the September school holidays, the tourist numbers are low at

in Bamaga, this year is off for both, and for those years TI has
another event - the Torres
Shire Multicultural Festival.
It's a smaller event
with no similar amount of cultural dances, but
is still a nice social event in the park and does have cultural
performances including singing and dancing :-)
I really appreciate any kind of feedback
on the Destination Guide.
