24 April to 2 May 2018: Norfolk Island Conservation Project – Wildmob. Our work on Norfolk Island is hands on. We will be working within Norfolk Island National Park, other reserves and on private conservation land. A large focus will be on bush-land restoration to improve habitat for over 55 threatened or endangered species, and up to 18 species of seabirds that breed within the Norfolk Island group. However, wildlife and habitat management can be a complex business and so at any time we might be helping out with feral animal control, doing research to improve our management, or simply brainstorming with local ecologists and land managers to find better ways of doing things.
You will be working alongside like-minded people, National Park rangers, local naturalist and scientists and Norfolk Islanders. Of course there will be plenty of time to enjoy the natural wonders of the islands; snorkeling in pristine ocean waters, bushwalking and bird-watching along National Park walking trails, exploring the World Heritage listed Kingston and Arthurs Vale ruins from the islands convict history, and of course enjoying the world renowned hospitality of Norfolk Islanders.

12 to 15 November 2018: Governors Cup Golf Tournament. 2018 will be the 12 year anniversary of the Governor’s Cup. This tournament is growing each year and early indications are that the 2018 event will be nearly full. It is held in November each year which is traditionally one of Norfolk’s best times of the year for good weather. It is has a different structure to other local golf tournaments with the format being a pairs event held over three days. While the main focus of the week is fun and enjoyment, there will still be strong competition with amazing $10,000 worth of prizes on offer.
Day one (Tuesday) is a 4 Ball Best Ball Stableford, Day two (Wednesday) is a 2 Person Ambrose and Day three (Thursday) is a 4 Ball Aggregate Stableford. Teams are awarded points based on where they finish amongst the field on each days play (e.g. if there are 50 teams of 2 players then the team that wins will collect 25 points, the team that comes second will collect 24 points……the team that comes 24th will win 2 points and the rest will collect 1 point). This unique point structure, along with the three different games, gives teams of all different handicap levels a realistic chance of winning. It has also traditionally been very close on the last day, which leads to some exciting golf.
The week starts with a Welcome Dinner. There is a cocktail welcome hour and delicious full buffet dinner on the night included in the tournament entry fee.
The golf is then held over the next three days with daily presentations being held in the clubhouse on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Following the golf on Thursday, there will be a daily and overall gala presentation dinner. A three course alternate drop menu is included in the tournament entry and a great is night guaranteed for all.
The Governor’s Cup is a terrific golf tournament and a great excuse to come and visit Norfolk Island.
