Norfolk Island

Last updated: 8 February 2018
Captain Cook called this small forested island just off Australia paradise on earth. With its pretty shingle beaches and steep cliffs that drop down into the bays it is easy to see why he was so charmed by it.  

Once a penal colony, Norfolk Island is the largest of three islands in the South Pacific and is 1700 km from Australia. It is covered with nature reserves and national parks surrounded by coral reefs, and topped by beautiful alpine forests. The crystalline rock pools and sheltered bays together with the island’s year-round moderate climate make this a perfect spot for beach and nature lovers. The island is a refuge for over one hundred thousand seabirds, including the endangered green parakeet.
