4th July, we went for a drive to southern part of Melville Island – Pitijmirra, the Tiwi College is located down here as well as a few outstations (a handful of people SOMETIMES live at outstations but usually use them as a holiday house), we drove through the outskirts of the college property to the beach eventually. They have a pretty good setup at the college, its for high school aged children who live in Milikapiti, they are collected on Mondays & are returned to the community on Fridays, the college is well staffed & caters for the kids while in their care. There is a freshwater creek(Takamprimili Ck) on the outskirts of the college which is a very popular swimming hole for the school & residents, although they have recently set up a crocodile trap slightly upstream as there was a siting of a croc, this creek runs all the way to the ocean.
Drove on a few interesting tracks to find the beach. The beach was quite lovely, very windy & definately did not have a swimming invitation. We actually found some cotton growing on the sand at the beach!!!
There has been quite a few fires around but the regrowth is putting on a show. Came across a few small mobs of horses, at the moment they are still in reasonable condition.
