In 2009, Matthew Hayden and Guy Reynolds decided to put something back in to the Tiwi Islands, a place that had given them so much enjoyment in the past fishing together.
They designed a fishing event, geared straight at corporate Australia, with 100 pct of all funds raised going to enhance the lives of the children of the Tiwi College.
Guided by the likes of Matthew Hayden, Andy Bichel, Glenn McGrath, Michael Kasprowicz, Wendell Sailor, Adam Gilchrist, Allan Border, Matthew Burke, Phil Waugh, Kurtley Beale, Dean Mumm and Andy Symonds to name a few, a four day fishing event is designed to engage interested supporters in blue water and river fishing in a competitive environment.
All events are run by the 100 percent Tiwi owned entity, the Tiwi Islands Adventures.
Corporates pay $15,000 for the 4 day guided event.
In collaboration with the BLK Foundation, some $3.15 million (as of February 2017) has been raised between 2010 and 2016.
It has produced Australia’s largest sustainable Indigenous garden.
