About the TSRA

The Torres Strait stretches 150 kilometres northwards from Cape York Peninsula to Papua New Guinea and up to 300 kilometres from east to west. This 48,000 km² area includes more than 270 islands and reefs.

As one of the most remote Australian Public Service (APS) agencies, TSRA supports programs across the region, including for 17 inhabited islands of the Torres Strait and the communities of Bamaga and Seisia on the Northern Peninsula Area of mainland Australia.

We are a statutory body and the lead Commonwealth agency in the Torres Strait for Indigenous Affairs operating under the direction of an elected Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal Board.
