Sitting 1,600km north-east of Sydney, 1,400km east of Brisbane, and 1,100km north-west of Auckland, Norfolk Island is a popular destination for Australians and New Zealanders alike. Despite being just a short flight from both countries, you’ll feel totally off the grid once you arrive.

The beautiful nature on Norfolk Island defines our way of life. In one day, you can go from experiencing rolling green hills and lofty sea cliffs to exploring lagoon reefed beaches and rainforests. With the tallest ferns on the earth, Norfolk Island Pines and 200-year-old Moreton Bay fig trees, the Norfolk Island National Park is the epicentre of birdwatching, trail walking and reconnecting with nature. Venture back to the coastline to discover a mesmerising strength of pristine sandy beaches and secret rocky coves. There are sweeping shallow bays, incredible fishing spots and amazing snorkelling. Head down in the late afternoon to be treated to a sunset you’ll never forget.
EATING & DRINKING
Norfolk Island is quickly gaining a reputation for the incredible range of paddock to plate dining options. The rich, organic soils and seasonal growing cycle mean local food and beverages are some of the freshest and tastiest you’ll find on the planet. Imagine feasting on fresh, locally caught tuna sashimi or the perfectly cooked local trumpeter that you caught on your fishing charter. You can sample the refreshing delights from the local winery or spend an afternoon at the island’s new sunset bar.
