Norfolk Island holds a special place in the hearts of everyone at Spacifica Travel because it is the first South Pacific destination that we started sending our customers to over 15 years ago. This small island to the east of Australia plays such a huge and important role in our convict and settler history and is home to many decedents of the infamous ship HMS Bounty. But Norfolk offers visitors so much more than just historical artefacts, convict settlements, museums and heritage - it has a natural beauty that will transport you back to a simpler time.
The first thing that you will notice when you step of the plane is how green Norfolk is – with towering pines, rolling hills and free-roaming cows, the island has a pleasant country-side atmosphere that makes you feel like you’ve just returned home after a long trip. The second thing you will notice is how fresh the air is – clean, unpolluted and slightly salty, it will fill your lungs, leaving you feeling instantly cleansed and relaxed.
Norfolk Island’s colourful past tells a gripping story, elements of which can be seen all over the island. Spend your days learning about the disappearance of early Polynesians, the arrival of European settlers, the wreckage of HMS Sirius, the emaciated convicts and much more. Throughout your stay, you can experience professional tours and shows, world-class painting displays, music, photography and the written word.
For nature lovers, there are spectacular views from every angle, along with lots of lovely walks, bird watching and interesting flora and fauna. If you’re looking for something more active, there is snorkeling, kayaking and chartered fishing to keep you busy, as well as diving tours to explore the shipwrecked HMS Sirius.
Accommodation-wise, there are plenty of options on Norfolk, from self-contained apartments that are close to the main town Burnt Pine, through to stunning heritage cottages that have been fully restored to their former glory. There are also lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from, all serving great local, fresh produce.
