Many Rivers recently started operations in the Torres Strait. Team Member Rita is based on Thursday Island and will be travelling regularly around the region to connect with individuals looking to start and grow a small business.
Region facts: The Torres Strait is Australia’s northern-most frontier, stretching from the tip of Queensland to the southern shores of Papua New Guinea. There are over 200 islands scattered throughout the Torres Strait, and of these 17 are inhabited. The Torres Strait is 150 kilometres across and joins the Coral Sea to the east with the Arafura Sea to the west. Thursday Island, the main administrative centre for the Torres Strait, is the gateway to a diverse culture and vast region. Source
