We are a locally and indigenously-owned company that provides ferry and bus transfers for both locals and visitors of the Torres Strait. Our business is the original and longest operating ferry and bus service to provide scheduled transfers between the Horn Island Airport, the Horn Island Jetty and Thursday Island (T.I.).
Our service also incorporates a fast Water Taxi to nearby islands; Bus Charters on both Thursday Island and Horn Island; Night Harbour Cruises for any occasion; and Ferry Charters for special events.
If you are flying in to the Horn Island Airport and travelling to Thursday Island, reservations can be made to guarantee your seat or tickets may be purchased from our bus driver at the front of the terminal upon your arrival. Once you have collected your luggage it’s now time for you to sit back; from here until you reach your final destination on T.I. our experienced staff will take care of both you and your luggage.
You start your transfer in one of our comfortable air-conditioned buses to the Horn Island Jetty to connect with our 50 passenger vessel, the “MV Australia Fair”. For the next 15-20 minutes sit back and relax in the breeze on the top deck as you take in panoramic views of the islands or seek shade from the tropical sun downstairs. Unwind and enjoy the gentle cruise across the turquoise waters of the Thursday Island Harbour.
