Enough talk! Let’s dive right in and give you a quick walkthrough of what makes Norfolk Island ideal for a family getaway.

Dig into local delicacies

If you visit in June or November, you will be a part of Bounty Day, or a Norfolk Island Food Festival. You will get to experience the best hospitality and some traditional dishes. These include pacific-style fish (local fish marinated in lemon juice, served with tomatoes, lettuce and other vegetables in a coconut cream sauce), mudda (green banana dumplings in coconut milk) and pilhi (a dish of green or ripe bananas, salt and flour). You can have a great family feast of local dishes and meet the locals at the festival.

Play golf at a World Heritage site

Gaze at the stunning beauty of Emily Bay as you sip coffee with your family at the clubhouse. You can have a fulfilling holiday at Norfolk Island by visiting the UNESCO world heritage ruins and museums full of rare artifacts.

Explore the island on your own

You can go to any place from your Norfolk Island accommodation by using the allocated Cumberland Resort and Spa rental car. You can drive to the top of Mount Pitt for a 360-degree view of the island or head northwest for a barbeque picnic with your family at Anson Bay. The captivating view of the sunset from Puppies Point and the starry night skies will give you an experience like never before. You can also try fun and adventurous activities at the beach, such as snorkeling and swimming at the blue lagoon, or a glass bottom boat tour to watch the crystal clear corals.

Do you want a break from the monotonous city life? If yes, you will not believe what Norfolk Island has in store for you. Norfolk Island is the place to forget the world and its headaches and have a good time. The scenic beauty at Norfolk Island will be a sight for sore eyes. Moreover, there are many fun things to do to keep you engaged. Although it’s hard to believe, Norfolk Island is only 35 sq km. But like the famous saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” Or, to be precise, “Don’t judge an island (especially Norfolk Island) by its land area.”

Where is Norfolk Island?

Alright! The place sounds all very nice, but where is Norfolk Island? Norfolk is a tiny Australian island in the South Pacific region, roughly between New Zealand and New Caledonia. It is almost at the same latitude as northern New South Wales. You will experience a mild subtropical climate, clean turquoise waters, and a coral-filled lagoon.
