Tour Duration: To suit, subject to flight schedules
Norfolk Island lies about 1700kms east of Sydney and is only 5 kms by 8 kms in size. It is a volcanic island made up of undulating hill country, with steep cliffs rising out of the ocean, patches of sub – tropical rainforests and a fascinating history. Discovered by Captain Cook it was twice settled as a Convict Settlement and twice abandoned. The original buildings of these settlements are beautifully restored and on display today. Its third and permanent settlement came with the relocation of the descendants of the famous mutineers of the Bounty. The mutineers settled on the tiny island of Pitcairn, about 3000 miles to the east and their descendants relocated to Norfolk Island in the mid 1800s when their community began to outgrow this small island. Today the families of these descendants are prominent. The history, the scenery and the hospitality will make this a memorable holiday. Our accommodation on Norfolk Island is at the South Pacific Resort and our touring on the island is with Baunti Escapes. Please note: Due to airline schedules this tour includes the first night in Sydney.
