The 28-page brochure discusses the wonderful variety of wellbeing, dining, cultural, historical, family, relaxation, action-packed and nature-based island and water activities and adventures available to all who venture to this travel hot spot.
Norfolk Island presents beautifully-appointed hotels, cottages and self-catering villas situated in stunning surrounds and more than 25 eateries, all offering an abundance of locally sourced fresh, organic and wholesome produce.
Think fresh fish, local beef, succulent pork and fruit and vegetables picked daily, Arabica coffee, handmade chocolates, honey, artisan cheese and a local winery and the island becomes an ideal short-haul getaway for gastronomes.

Stunning swimming beaches and majestic coastlines contrast lush rainforests and bushland set against the backdrop of dramatic history and unique culture, while World Heritage listed Kingston and Arthurs Vale Historic Area is the oldest of 11 Australian penal colonies.

The new Norfolk Island brochure includes an introduction from NIT Ambassador and Television Personality, Ray Martin quoted as saying “Visiting Norfolk Island may mean turning back the clock to a quieter, more relaxed era, but don’t let anyone tell you that this lovely place is strictly for retirees or your grandparents”.
