Norfolk Island

Norfolk is a short two-hour flight from Sydney. As you land you will see tall Norfolk pines and green nature all around the island.

Norfolk is known for its history and the Bounty.

Its part of Australia so you only need a drivers license to visit. Its set up as International so you normally fly Qantas from the International Airport.

The people are some of the friendliest on this earth. Their smiles, friendly nature, and keen to please is beyond your expectations.

The Bauti shuttle picked us up from the airport and only ten minutes and we were pulling into the Paradise Resort. Most accommodation on Norfolk is comfortable, friendly, and close to town.

The Paradise offers large comfy rooms with on-suites. A large pool in the middle of the resort with sun lounges to sit on with a drink or magazine in hand.

The resorts offer a bar near reception, la le carte meals at night, light or large meals at lunchtime and a huge buffet for breakfast.

Next door the is the gardens, cyclorama, gallery, and Hillis café/restaurant.

I had the best pork belly at Hillis and the Devonshire tea. I would highly recommend.

Up the road is the Bounty Museum worth visiting. They offer free Wi-Fi as well as the island communications are limited due to the remote area as you go back in time.

The town is only ten minutes’ walk from the Paradise. The walk is past beautiful gardens, cows, and friendly people. The town offers many bouquet shops, cafes, clubs, etc. Enjoy a few hours to support the locals and pick up a unique purchase for yourself or a friend.

We went on many tours, picked up and returned by Bauti from the Paradise.

The tours I recommend are the progressive dinner, fish fry, Colleen McCullough tour, Discover Norfolk/Kingston, 1856 The untold story, Glass bottom boat, who killed the Surveyor mystery and so many more to choose. These tours really give you the Norfolk experience. Many included dinners a great way to eat Norfolk style.

I would recommend Norfolk Island as a place to visit many times as it’s the place to destress and find your happy place.
