Thursday Island Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 26 photos

Luis de Torres discovered these islands

Probably he also discovered Australia mainland.
The monument was erected by the Spanish embassador in Australia to conmemorate Torres discovery of the islands

Welcome to Torres Strait Islands.
Probably Thursday is not the most interesting island of the archipelago, but I had no time, nor money, to visit the rest, apart from Horn island, where the airport is located.

You have to take a ferry from Horn island to Thursday island, the capital of the archipelago.

Pros and Cons
