Voted by TripAdvisor as one of the Top 10 South Pacific Islands to visit, Norfolk Island is the perfect place for travellers seeking more than just hot-cross buns and crème eggs this Easter.

Norfolk Island is just a hop, skip and a jump away! Just a 90 minute flight from Auckland and you’ll be touching down in an island filled with gastronomical delights, enthralling history and charismatic charm. 

Local fare

This Easter, Norfolk Island has everything you need to get your taste buds tingling - from chocolate to coffee and adventure!  Direct from the soil or straight from the sea, the seasonal ‘paddock to plate’ approach to local Norfolk Island dining means food tastes just as it should – fresh and full of flavour!

With the Island surrounded by reefs and deep currents, it’s the perfect combination for amazing varieties of fish. Enjoy caught-that-morning fish including Red Throat Sweet Lip and Snapper. Join an island style fish fry feast on the cliff top whilst watching a stunning sunset, with local market garden salads and traditional dessert pies to finish; wash it down with a glass of wine from Two Chimney’s Winery or short-black espresso from Anson Bay Coffee Plantation.

With numerous dining options, you’ll never go hungry in Norfolk.  From cafes to local restaurants or even progressive dinners where you dine in local family homes, you’ll find dining a delight.  In fact you may even like to try your hand at whipping up a gourmet dish with the Mastering Taste Cooking School.  Or sample the “Christian Brothers” local hand crafted cheeses that includes feta, ricotta, haloumi, and a hard cheese, adding another foodie experience for visitors unique to the island.

Discover nature

For the active, bushwalk through the National Parks with a tour guide or self guide with an iPod, discover giants and numbering some 180 rare flora and fauna rainforest species that make Norfolk Island one big botanic garden. Alternatively, try a kayaking tour, horseriding, tennis, golf or a bike ride.

Delve into Norfolk's history

For an intriguing afternoon, head down to the World Heritage area of Kingston.  As well as being spectacularly beautiful, this is where the heart of Norfolk’s history lies.  Wander amongst the ruins of the old penal colony and discover the tragic stories of both prisoners and later, the descendants of the famous Mutiny on the Bounty .  The contrast between such tragedy and such beauty can’t help but pull at your heartstrings.

And if you are bringing the kids with you, Kingston is the perfect place for an Easter Egg hunt!  The kids will love clambering over stone walls, prison ruins and old relics searching for chocolate treats.  In fact Norfolk Island keeps children entertained with free mini golf every afternoon, giant boab trees perfect for the most elaborate of make-believe adventures and a beach that stretches in a giant horse-shoe.  

There’s more to Norfolk Island than you may think, so make the break this autumn and hop on over!
