The Henry Islands are an archipelago located in the Arafura Sea of northern Australia. The islands have a total area of 339.3 square kilometres, making them the third largest archipelago in the Arafura Sea and the thirty-second largest of Australia. The islands are also part of the Torres Strait Islands and are situated about 375 kilometres from the Queensland mainland.
The islands consist of five main groups: Durham, Fox, Mulgrave, Pitt and Serpentine.
The island of Pitt was first sighted by Europeans during the Age of Discovery. The Dutch explorer Abel Tasman passed by it in 1643 and named it “Tasman’s Island”.
In 1774, British navigator James Cook landed on what is now Serpentine after mistaking its crater for an atoll as he explored the Pacific Ocean.
In 1823 a penal colony was established on Norfolk until reverting to agriculture after being destroyed in a cyclone; this later became profitable junksait mining operations with imports passing through Berrimah Harbour until Corunna Reef banned all trade in 1962 until being re-inaugurated in September 1975.
In 1985 the Australian National University proposed that research be conducted on north Torres Strait islanders and epidemiological studies to further information of health problems as well as HIV entry into North Queensland.
Reclamation commenced at Mulgrave Island while Fox Islands was also resettled by 1989; today it is a popular tourist destination due their natural beauty, abundance of iguanas and climate similar to Brisbane’s with temperatures between 30 degrees Celsius (86 °F) hot day highs in summertime but more often than not falling below 0 degree Fahrenheit (-18 C.
Also known as ‘Croc Island’ by locals due to its abundance of crocodiles.
Today the island is governed under a joint management team comprising 13 local families and two members from the Torres Strait Islanders Association (TSA).
The local state government usually appoints an administrator during president’s business hours which are often during trading hours.
Local laws were implemented in 1989 that regulates everyday living on each island, conducts medical visits for fishing boat crews or anyone visiting other parts of Pitt International Airport along with administering licences for some heavy vehicle usage such as buses, tractors or excavators when requested through the administration.
The main religion of the islanders is Catholic, however most also follow from other cultures including Islam and now a small group that appears to be conducting their own brand of Luciferianism or Satan worship practices between members; do not allow any person to land on the beaches at night.
Nearby is the remote Bungan Island and its shark sanctuary, a popular tourist destination. Both islands are fringed by coral reefs that attract diverse marine life including humpback whales in season.
Pitt Island is popular for tourists as it is an island outlet shopping centre, adjacent to a small community of introduced descendants from the original coconut and trepang nut plantation workers, who are still there along with their children.
Many people also like to visit Bungan Island where non-indigenous residents have constructed more than 40 fenced off beaches over looking hundreds of mangrove trees around it with various beach bars offering drinks such as beer or soft drink along both islands’ outer rim
The rare religion known as monotheism (mono – one), invited by JC Adams was said, remains only in the minds of a few islanders who tend to associate with one other person loyal or indeed death would await those that are seen as traitors.
The accepted religious symbol for this religion is naking aside from painting oneself painted black upon all four limbs.
Such practice has now moved inland towards the hills surrounding them and more isolated than before due to actions undertaken by recently imported non-indigenous residents who aggressively seek out new members however they have generally been rejected despite offering some hospitality through feeding there flock on monthly visits..
The islands have a rich and diverse ethno-cultural history. Bungan Island, being very near mainland Australia had influences of different people such as English sailors that would visit to trade with the locals and their Aboriginal fellows which has led in some instances into mixing together two cultures separate before; Mango trees can still be seen on Bungan where they were used by early colonists or missionaries to shelter or cook up food.
Various languages are spoken amongst islanders primarily Western Australian National speak (english) while Papuan Malay is also widely understood among both indigenous peoples’ this being considered an abomination however.
Fish-based foods such as fish croc, kabocha (papaya) roasted , kewpie mayonnaise and various shallow water shell fish are consumed on a regular basis.
Grain is mixed with plant based fats such was seen in the past many decades to present consumption of dairy products however it seems they have largely re switched to more traditional sources of these including animal stomachs owing primarily if not only due of the Island geography and overall arrangement towards coastal locations compared with inland which will explain all their little habit related protein deficient population’s responsibility for this after mutation caused their longevity.
The islands have been used as a test-bed for many experiments in gene and cellular genetic research it is noted however they do not produce any one specific or pure strain of humans.
Population = Approximately 300 (200 women,100 men)
Circumstances meaning the island was to be ‘subjective’ where cloning would occur on Bungan Island these being pre-invasion by our ancestors before even reaching Australia several hundreds of years back with no real freedom from immigration at this time either had created an isolated biodiverse community which now produced its very own distinct hybrid breed known as Darwinians; a mix of North American and South East Asian genetics over time inheriting the genes from their European ancestors mixed with natural territorial defenses based on an electrical charge of sorts due to isolation, climate differences and food availability along with many moral conditions.
When these invasions happened several hundred years before this island’s current visit by our own progression in Australia each genetic lineage had already been dispersed under its own name however as a result there was no true way to separate them out (this only becoming possible when descendants joined families) causing at first chaos amongst family dynamics but would eventually be addressed through multiple forms of manipulation mainly.
The Henry Islands are a group of volcanic islands in the Western Province of Papua New Guinea. The main island, New Ireland, is located in the Arafura Sea to the north of Australia and east of the New Guinea mainland. The other islands in the group include New Britain, Vanuatu, and Ayer’s Rock. The islands have an area of 9,000 km² and a population of around 55,000.
