Discover Norfolk Island: Unveiling a hidden paradise in the South Pacific
Tucked away in the South Pacific Ocean lies a hidden gem that often goes unnoticed by the masses: Norfolk Island.

With its pristine beaches, national parks, UNESCO World Heritage site, protected marine park right to the shoreline, brilliant night sky and rich history, Norfolk Island is a true paradise that offers an unforgettable travel experience.

For History Buffs

Originally settled as a British penal colony, Norfolk Island has a unique and intriguing past. Visit the Kingston and Arthur’s Vale Historic Area, a UNESCO World Heritage site, which showcases the remains of the old convict settlement.

Norfolk’s sweeping narrative took on a more hopeful tone when the descendants and families of the HMS Bounty mutineers arrived from Pitcairn Island, shaping the European and Tahitian character and culture you’ll find on Norfolk today.

Learn about the island’s fascinating history through informative exhibits and guided tours. Truly immerse yourself by learning a few phrases from the local language – you can start with watawieh (hello, how are you) or see yorlye morla (see you tomorrow).

Escape the Hustle & Bustle

The island’s laid-back atmosphere, absence of traffic lights, and minimal crowds create a tranquil setting for relaxation. Enjoy the fresh air, time spent in nature and plenty of peaceful places to unwind. You’ll feel a million miles away from city life when you see the free-roaming cows and learn that the livestock have right of way.

Naturally Norfolk

Norfolk Island boasts breathtaking natural beauty, from its rugged cliffs and turquoise waters to its lush greenery and stunning sunsets. Walk or drive to the top of Mount Pitt for 360-degree views of the island. Visit Emily Bay, a picture-perfect sandy beach encircled by coral reefs, ideal for snorkelling and swimming. Take a hike through the scenic national parks, such as the Bridle Track along the coast.


Norfolk Island is a haven for astronomy enthusiasts and anyone who appreciates stargazing. With its remote location and minimal light pollution, there are clear, unobstructed views of the night sky – so much so that Norfolk was awarded the rare status of Gold Level Dark Sky Town by the Australian Dark Sky Register in 2019.
