Norfolk Island is the perfect escape from a demanding world. The delightful switch to ‘Norfolk Time’ allows the internal clock to release the passing of each hour and frees the mind from expectation.
Everywhere you look on Norfolk Island there is something to explore. Every local has an interesting story and every artefact in the museums speaks of a past long gone but remains pivotal in the lifestyle and for the people, who call this special place home today.
Adventures await at every turn with the island presenting a rich history and picturesque tapestry of tranquil forests, peaceful gardens and pine-dotted meadows, surrounded by some of the deepest and most beautiful waters in the Pacific Ocean.
The green rolling hills, lagoon-fringed shoreline, treasure-filled rock pools, soaring seabirds and majestic and world-famous Norfolk Island pines are part of an amazing backdrop of country charm and seaside serenity ready for you to explore on foot via the many laid out walking tracks and on meandering roads in a colourful Mini Moke, on push bike or on the many 4WD tours with local guides.
In nature’s paradise, discover White Terns fluttering overhead and Red-Tailed Tropicbirds gliding past sheer cliffs and catch sight of one of the rare Green Parrot, which can only be found on Norfolk Island, and over many years has been under the watchful eye of local rangers and National Parks and Wildlife to ensure this beautiful species lives on. And take a trip over to nearby Phillip island, another important breeding site for at least 12 species of seabirds.
Enjoy a refreshing swim at fabulous Emily Bay where you can also start your channel challenge to Slaughter Bay and back, snorkel at Cemetery Bay and off Salt Mill, kayak in the open waters and, for surfers, catch a reef break at Kingston.
Stories of catching four fish on one line are true so head out on a guided charter where a feed of Trumpeter (Red Emperor) is almost guaranteed and try for Kingfish, Grouper, Snapper, Trevally, Rock Cod and Tuna.
Back on land, play a round of golf on a world-heritage listed 9-hole course alongside sweeping gardens of Government House, learn about the history and culture of the island in the many museums and roam through remarkable remains of the Second Penal settlement.
And stand atop Mount Pitt and marvel at the absolute 360° views as you take in all that is there for you to experience on intriguing and fascinating Norfolk Island.
