Norfolk Island Events - Heritage & Culture
Every month a number of Events occur on Norfolk Island covering sports, history, music, dance, arts, hobbies and special interests. Travel to participate in an Event or time your holiday to add in some extra holiday experiences.
Dawn Service Commemorations for ANZAC Day on Norfolk Island are the first to be held in Australia. As the sun rises over Emily Bay, in view of the Island’s own Lone Pine, the Norfolk Island RSL leads a poignant community ceremony of remembering that individually connects and unites.
Celebrate the arrival of the Pitcairn Islanders, alongside the Norfolk Island community! On June 08 1856, the Morayshire arrived on Norfolk where they were met by the Commissariat Storekeeper and his wife – this day became known as ‘Anniversary Day’ and later ‘Bounty Day’. Visitors are welcome to absorb the local culture, embodied through the local ‘Norf’k’ language (a mix of Tahitian, Creole and old English) as well as traditional food, crafts and customs.
Family history society members and genealogy enthusiasts across Australasia are warmly invited to the Australasian Federation of Family History Organisation’s 2022 Congress, hosted by Norfolk Island Museum. What better location could there be to immerse yourself in family history, genealogy, heraldry and history than on beautiful – and historic – Norfolk Island.
