Who can resist fresh sea breezes, relaxing walks along the beach and stunning views across the ocean? Yup, us neither! Norfolk’s natural beauty is breathtaking and with the convenience of your own car hire you can explore the island at your own pace. Explore the Botanic Gardens, enjoy a clifftop picnic or enjoy snorkelling in the protected waters of Emily Bay. Take in scenic vistas from multiple lookouts like the Captain Cook Monument, Flagstaff Hill, Queen Elizabeth lookout and our favourite – Mount Pitt Lookout for a 360 degree view of the entire island. Why not try to time your visit to Mount Pitt when one of Air New Zealand’s planes arrive? It’s an amazing spectacle to watch the talented pilots landing manoeuvres! The Norfolk Island Fire Service even play a little game with the pilots and give them a rating for each landing! Watch the video with Ray Martin here.
The Norfolk Island locals share a strong sense of community and are very welcoming to their mainland visitors. They are very proud of their island heritage and are very willing to let you into their world by sharing their language, traditions and customs. One little custom that you can take part in is to give a ‘Norfolk Wave’ to other cars and passers-by as you drive along the winding country roads. Enjoy life at a slower pace where you can share in their social gatherings, gain a deeper understanding of Norfolk’s culture and experience island living at its best! Time seems to slow down here and you can rest assured that once you’ve had your fill of the clean fresh air with a hint of Norfolk Pine, you’ll be coming home feeling relaxed and refreshed, having met some new friends and gained fantastic memories.
