The Tiwi Grand Final on Bathurst Island is a big event in Australian Rules football.

On Sunday 20 March 2000 people turned up to see Muluwurri play Tuyu at Warramiyunga Oval.

Led by Lindsay Moreen, who kicked seven goals in a best-on-ground performance, Muluwarri (the Magpies) won by 12 points.

The day is a celebration of Tiwi Islands culture, as local artists and centres open their doors to tourists.
