The Tiwi Islands are located 80 km north of Darwin in the beautiful Arafura Sea. There are two islands, Bathurst and Melville Islands, with a total land mass of 8320 sq km. The Council has offices on the Islands and in Darwin.

The first European settlement on the Islands was at Fort Dundas, near present-day Pirlangimpi on Melville Island. Established in September 1824, this was the first British settlement in northern Australia, but owing in part to the hostility of the Indigenous population it lasted only five years, being abandoned in 1829. As the first attempted European and military settlement anywhere in northern Australia, the site is on Australia's Register of the National Estate.
