If you missed visiting Norfolk Island during the recent school holidays, plan now for a family escape to this fascinating and fun playground for everyone to enjoy.
The island offers an array of great hotels, cottages and catering villas in fabulous settings, ideal for families to settle into on their holiday escape.
There is so much to explore, taste, learn and do. The sea temperature is around 190C so the beaches still beckon and adventures, including kayaking, glass bottom boat rides and fishing charters, enable everyone to have fun on the water without having to get all that wet.
With a nine-hole golf course in the heritage area, a tennis club, squash courts, horse-riding stables, horse and buggy rides and kilometres of intriguing walking trails through pristine natural reserves and parks, and much more, there are plenty of options for staying active. Not to mention photo opportunities!
The clubs, cafes and casual restaurants all cater for children and the ice cream parlour and specialty sweet shop are great family favourites. One of the cafes also has its own friendly bull the children can feed while Mum and Dad kick back for a coffee. Plus there is a tour of a goat farm especially for families; and the amazing Fletchers Mutiny Cyclorama historical attraction.
As well as the wide variety of history, lifestyle and cultural bus tours on offer, families can install one of the many iPod tours in their car for exploring the island. The Visitors Information Centre has a wealth of news about all that is happening and services tailored for families, including local baby sitters or the availability of holiday kids’ club activities.
So next school holidays, escape on a short flight and enjoy your family connections on Norfolk Island.
