“Over-the-Seas” travel, right on your doorstep
If 2020 can teach us anything, it is that nothing can be taken for granted any longer. A global crisis that has not been felt for over 75 years, the effects of COVID-19 have been felt by us all - however from the darkness comes the shining light of adaptation and ingenuity. This is something that tour operators on Norfolk Island excel in, and the early shutdown of the island has not only prevented any active cases from arriving on our South Pacific oasis, it has enabled businesses to assess their products, undertake renovations and improvements, and to complete all those niggly little jobs that there never seems time to be able to do!
Some interesting research has recently found that Australians are keen to travel close to home when restrictions are lifted in order to support the local economy, particularly as many are wary of the health risks now posed by international travel.
So why not have the best of both worlds? Indulge in your desire to travel over-the-seas… while supporting the domestic market?
As domestic Australian travel begins to open up, there really couldn’t be a better choice than Norfolk Island for a holiday that offers a safe, clean, unspoilt community and destination you can really trust. Whether you are a family looking for a much-needed get-away, a couple looking to rekindle the romance or a group looking for a unique travel experience, Norfolk Island is an idyllic location right on your doorstep.
The beauty of Norfolk is that you can choose to do as much or as little as you’d like. Our pristine environment can be self-explored via swimming, reef snorkelling, rainforest walks or simply sipping your favoured drink from a vantage cliff top as the sun sets over the water. There are also a number of guided tours and activities offering extra experiences such as 4WD tours, deep sea fishing or Breakfast Bushwalks.
For those looking simply to recharge, the island boasts numerous spa retreats, beauty salons and yoga studios. The weekend markets enable visitors and locals alike to access fresh produce and local crafts, all a stone’s throw from cafes and restaurants.
Heritage and culture abound on Norfolk Island, from the world-heritage listed Kingston and Arthur’s Vale Historic Area to learning about the unique Norf’k culture from local Pitcairn Islander descendants during one of the many tours available - history and culture-buffs can immerse themselves in over 700 years of Norfolk Island’s unique and diverse heritage.
The team at Norfolk Island Travel Centre are ready and eager to help you organise your visit to our beautiful corner of the Pacific – “yorlye welkam lukorn” (Norf’k for “you are welcome to come and look around”).
Whether you visit Norfolk by yourself, with family or friends, or as part of an organised (or your own) group trip, make sure to use the knowledge available from local travel agents, tour operators and visitor information services all located on the island. ‘Meeting the locals’ really is part of a Norfolk Island experience, so make sure to do so even before you travel. You’ll surely find much more than you expected on a Norfolk Island holiday.
