10 of the Best Things About Norfolk Island
1. Emily Bay
2. Heritage & Culture
How does such a small Island lay claim to such rich history & stories? The locals have their own language, customs & heritage & the World Heritage status of Kingston reveals its multi- faceted convict and historical importance.
3. Fresh Seasonal Food
The Island has always grown its own seasonal produce – the way the rest of us are now catching on to! You won’t believe the taste of vegies, their ‘food miles’ can be measured in metres and they’ve never seen a day of cold storage! November’s annual Food Festival celebrates our bounteous harvest.
4. Beauty Abounds
This Island goes beyond any superlative you can think of. Suffice to say there must have been a reason why out of all the Pacific Islands he visited, the only place Captain Cook described as ‘paradise’, was Norfolk Island.
Norfolk Islanders love their sport and not only participate themselves but host many Open Tournaments. An excellent way to get to know the locals is by joining a golf, bowls, archery, or pistol shooting event. Their newest event, outrigging, is an excellent spectator event as well.
6. Artistic Inspiration
This is a creative place, no doubt partly inspired by the Island’s peace and beauty. Joining an En Plein Air painting, photography and even quilting trip is an excellent way to combine artistic passions with a holiday.
7. Getting Out Into It
Choose between walking trails in vivid green rainforest, snorkelling in crystal clear waters, beach walks, kayaking, deep sea fishing or a game of golf. Norfolk is being increasingly appreciated for its adventure activities offering plenty of choice for energetic visitors! Sunset cliff-top drinks and a BBQ followed by star-gazing completes any day.
8. Phillip Island
Only 20 minutes by boat, outlying Phillip Island is a nature lover’s nirvana. A stunning, even if strenuous walk discovers the largest breeding populations of red-tailed tropic birds in Australia amongst thousands of breeding birds. A true conservation success story can be discovered here.
9. Friendly Locals
Barely a visitor returns without commenting on the friendliness and easy manner of the locals. Make sure to return the Norfolk ‘wave’ when driving, and know you’ll be genuinely welcomed to have a chat at a local club, in an Islander’s home during a Progressive Dinner, in a café or out and about!
