Norfolk Island is an incredibly safe destination with a zero crime rate and old-fashioned neighbourhood friendliness is still the norm here. Therefore you can let the kids explore at their own pace knowing they’ll return safe & sound. Here are our Top 5 Family Activities on Norfolk Island!
1. Explore Emily Bay
This is arguably one of the most picturesque locations on Norfolk Island! Emily Bay boasts turquoise waters with a vast array of coral to snorkel amongst. The kids will love spotting a variety of sea life hiding within the coral gardens and there’s even a pontoon in the middle of the bay to show off those impressive backflip techniques! Using up all that energy can create hungry little bellies and Emily Bay has free BBQs for you to use whilst soaking up the views across the bay to Phillip & Nepean Island.
2. Mini Golf Course
Open Fridays & Saturdays from 2-5pm, mini golf is an activity that the whole family will enjoy, plus the winner can be treated to a delicious ice-cream from the cafe! You can also play a game of giant chess, visit the toy shop or take a “Walk in the Wild” - a privately owned rainforest trail for you to explore the stunning flora & fauna.
3. Hedge Maze
Challenge yourself and make your way through the Hedge Maze at the Strawberry Fields Garden & Maze. Once you find your way back out of the maze, you can pick your own strawberries! Yum!
4. Visit Hilli Goat Farm
The kids will love meeting the cheeky goats at Hilli Goat Farm! Have a pat or feed the goats who might have kids of their own by the time you visit! After meeting the stars of the tour, learn about the milking and cheese making process and sample some of the luxurious goat milk cosmetics like hand creams & soaps. Then it’s time to relax with a lazy lunch and experience the paddock to plate way of life on Norfolk Island featuring delicious goat cheese and stunning views!
5. Learn about the history of Norfolk
Norfolk Island has four main layers of its colourful history, starting with Polynesian voyagers from 800AD, followed by Captain Cook’s arrival in the 1700s, then the convict settlements in the 1800s and later after the Mutiny on the Bounty, the arrival of the Pitcairn Islander families. Explore the convict ruins in World Heritage Kingston, visit the Cyclorama (a magnificent 360 degree panoramic painting that captures Fletcher Christian’s Mutiny with storyboards and sound effects) or join a tour to receive an in-depth account of Norfolk’s past.
