Warraber (Sue) Island is the middle island of The Three Sisters, 100km north east of Thursday Island.
Warraber Island boasts an abundance of traditional foods such as wongai and coconuts and is positioned on a beautiful coral cay. Numerous fish, turtles and dugongs enjoy the warm waters and coral reefs surrounding the island.
Life on the Island remains traditional with hunting, dancing and ki ki (feasts) being vital to contemporary life. Many Warraber Islanders have kept strong links to their traditional primal religion, focusing on ancestor worship and respect to the spirits.
The residents of Warraber Island observe the "Coming of the Light" annually on 1 July. On this day in 1871, the Reverend Samuel MacFarlane of the London Missionary Society bought major social and spiritual change to the Torres Strait in the form of Christianity.
