Norfolk Island awaits your visit!






Norfolk Island is a most amazing place to visit and one that so rewarding in many different ways.

Norfolk Island is situated in the Pacific Ocean about 1,400 kms (800 miles) east from Australia. It takes about three hours flying from Brisbane to Norfok Island. The Island is part of the Commonwealth of Australia, but has its own governance to a large extent. It is a truly beautiful island that has the most wonderful scenery, everywhere you look and a fantastic and genuinely riveting history.

It is on this island that the descendants of Fletcher Christian and his band of mutineers settled. This history is celebrated all over the island, least of which is the still standing original buildings of the first and second penal colony in the original township of Kingston.

Norfolk Islanders have banded together to bring tourism to the island and they’ve done this in a rather unique way. Those on the island who have a “hobby” or “interest” have organised “week retreats” for tourists to come to the island, experience the wonders of the island and its people and also indulge in their particular passion for 5 days running.

Examples of their retreats that they offer include a golfing week (they have a great golf course), Clay Target week, Bowls week, Poker Tournament, Line Dancing, Country Music week, Opera Week, Archery week, Rock and Roll week, The Red Hatters Week, Theatre week, Food Festival, Jazz Festival and so much more.


Those like minded enthusiasts can gather on the Island for a whole week of doing what they love best and of course the seasonal food and restaurants are many and varied across the island.



What ever your hobby, it's a fabulous week and one where you will make long lasting friendships.

The accommodation is great and includes the hire of a car for the weekend. Norfolk Island is a small island with a square area of 36 sq kilometres (13 miles) and is a little too big to walk to get to places. The roads are good, but the speed limit is 40kmph because the islands cows are allowed to roam free on the verges of roads and other trafficable areas.

Norfolk Island is a truly unique little gem of a place that’s worth visiting at least once. Interestingly, a number of hobbyists come back year after year to enjoy the generous hospitality of the people and the pristine environment of the island.
