Living on Yam Island
The Torres Strait Islands is an island archipelago off shore from the highest of the Australian mainland and is home to the people of the Torres Strait Nation. This unique and beautiful region is best known for its pristine waters and amazing fishing.
Yam Island, locally known as Iama or Turtle-Backed Island is located 100 kilometres north west of Thursday Island in the Central Island Cluster. Home to around 350 people, Yam is surrounded by crystal clear waters which yield abundant fish. The traditional language spoken across the island is Kalkalgal Ya, with Torres Strait Creole also being spoken by some locals.
Local amenities on Yam include an IBIS store, sporting facilities, library and Primary Health Care Centre. The community is built near the airstrip, and there is both a barge ramp and pier for small craft and passengers. Access to Yam Island is by air, with Skytrans providing regular passenger service from Horn Island most weekdays. Additionally, there is a regular barge service operated by Sea Swift for freight.
