Seisia

Seisia is Australia's most northernly community. It is also the jumping off point for a range of marine based activities - day trips with fishing guides, tours to explore the Torres Strait Islands or a walk to the end of the jetty, the social epicentre for the community. You can also do it yourself here - there is a boat ramp to launch small vessels while dinghies can be hired from nearby New Mapoon. This small, beachside Torres Island community is well worth a visit. There is a popular beachfront camping ground with a budget lodge and excellent seaside self-contained cabins. Take a short stroll from the campground to the jetty, a fishing platform for residents. Give yourself the time for a lazy conversation, an opportunity of sharing moments with the locals. Adjust to northern time, where the day is measured not by the clock but by the flow of people and nature. Seisia is one of five towns in the Northern Peninsula Area at the end of the road at Cape York Peninsula. Supply vessels unload cargo at this port and vehicles and passengers are taken on board to cruise back to Cairns through the Great Barrier Reef islands. The one-way land, return-sea option offers a comprehensive insight into this part of the world. Peddells ferry from Thursday Island also docks here, assisting movement between that Torres Strait Island and the national parks association communities. You can use this service to explore Thursday Island. If you are wondering about the town's name, 'Seisia' is comprised of the first letters of the names of the father and his brothers of the original Saibai Island settlers to Red Island Point, the geographical name of the township. Seisia has a petrol station with vehicle and boat fuel supplies, hire cars, a taxi service, well-stocked supermarket, mechanical repair shops and an airstrip 17 kilometres to the south. All towns in this area are only minutes' apart, built on the Deed of Grant in Trust structure administered by community councils. Alcohol restrictions apply - there is no canteen in the community
