Norfolk Island may be small in size, merely a dot in the vast South Pacific Ocean, but it features a large and colourful history.
The island’s unique language – a curious mix of English and Tahitian – owes its origin to the descendants of Bounty mutineers from Pitcairn Island, who arrived on the island in 1856 following the end of its incarnation as a British penal colony.
The history and heritage that abounds from that time is still evident, with the capital, Kingston, home to an array of museums housing significant artefacts and archaeological finds.
Norfolk Island is also renowned for its beauty, with sparkling seas and a picturesque landscape offering all manner of recreational activities, from hiking to fishing and everything in between. Head out on a glass bottom boat or enjoy a gourmet afternoon tea in a park-like setting, the choice is yours.
