Few, if any, international borders separate societies at such vastly different stages of development as Australia's remote northern border with Papua New Guinea. This region, known as the Torres Strait Treaty Zone, serves to maintain the age-old cultural links between the people of southern PNG and the Torres Strait islands and provides the stage for a complex and fascinating interaction between the indigenous inhabitants and between the many government agencies operating on both sides of the border.
