Selaru Island lies 470 km due north of Darwin and 410 km due east of Timur Leste. It is one of a group of 65 islands in the Tanimbar Islands, between Arafura and Banda seas, in the Indonesian Archipelago. The islands were first visited by the Dutch in 1629 and settled by the Dutch in 1900. The people are Papuan Melanesians. Their wooden houses on piles show fine construction and carvings, and they are skilful boat builders. At sea they collect sea cucumbers and turtle shell; on land work in iron, copper and gold. The women are noted for ikat weavings using handspun cotton thread.

The largest settlement is Adaut on the northern coast. In the vicinity are fine beaches, interesting off-shore islands, and skull caves (some sealed, and skulls of uncertain origin). You’ll find famous beautiful wild Lelemuku orchids here, though protected and can’t be taken away. In the centre-south of the island is Lingat village, with nearby beautiful beach Pantai Limian. Lingat was a Japanese war base, and many war relics, bunkers, flagpole and an airport (a base to bomb Darwin) can still be seen there.

Making sopi (gin) is an island specialty, particularly at Lingat, where the houses are often on high stilts. Cooking is often done in earth ovens, as in Papua and the Pacific islands.
