360° OF WONDER – Norfolk Island
From surfing to stargazing, ghost tours to golf, stunning scenery, pristine beaches and fantastic food, Norfolk Island has it all. It’s less than a three-hour flight from New Zealand, and once you experience Norfolk Island’s 360° of wonder, you’ll soon be wondering why you didn’t come over sooner!
EVERYWHERE YOU TURN ON Norfolk Island – literally for 360 degrees – there’s something wonderful, something to thrill and inspire, to soothe the mind, body and soul. And while Norfolk has been on many Kiwis’ to-do list for years, and there’s never been a better time than now to come see paradise before the hustle and bustle returns.
With its mix of sunlit sands and crystal-clear waters, rugged cliffs and deep forests, Norfolk’s diverse landscape magically changes at each turn. And while it’s an ideal spot to kick back and bask in the sunshine and sea air, chances are you won’t be sitting still for long.
Pull on some goggles and float out from the sands of Emily Bay to coral reefs or out a little further into surf breaks where the waves are plenty and your fellow surfers are friendly and few. There are morning charters that let you fish the day away – and the fishing here is spectacular! – then by night sit back as your catch is served up to you expertly prepared island style.
And island style eating is what is putting Norfolk Island on the map for many foodies. Because forget about food miles – on Norfolk they work in food metres! Their volcanic soils are rich, deep, and free of all the chemical nasties the rest of the world is finally waking up to, so pile your plate with food caught, collected and harvested from our pristine waters, tide pools and paddocks each day.
And, if you like to eat organic, well, that’s pretty much the only way the Islanders know: from mouth-watering fresh-caught seafood cooked on the barbecue or flame-grilled Norfolk Blue beef served up in the atmospheric dining room of a convict-era home, to the South Pacific’s best wood-fired pizzas and burgers big enough to satisfy the appetite of the most ravenous castaway.
So come on Kiwis, now really is the time to get back in the air and get on over to Norfolk Island before the rest of the world returns. It’s just a hop, skip and a jump away, and it offers everything you want in the perfect getaway: sun, sand, great food, relaxation and adventure.
So, what are you waiting for?
