Next we’d recommend adding on some tours, so you can experience and learn about everything this island paradise has to offer. Read on to learn about three new tours starting June 2022.

Wars of Change Tour

This little island community wasn’t exempt from the effects of the war, and you will discover artefacts and history throughout your Norfolk Island travels during your stay here. During an afternoon tour learn about the social impact on the community from World War II.

Your experienced guide will tell you what happened when a major part of the island’s male population left the community to join the fight. During this time defence troops were posted to the island also creating a huge impact. Another wartime disruption was the construction of the Norfolk Island airport. This created a lot of destruction to mature Norfolk Island Pines and homes, but it did pave the way for future tourism and travel to Norfolk Island.

You will also tour some historic sites. This includes war machinery including artillery emplacements and radar stations, as well as tented accommodation for troops and water supply facilities. You’ll truly get a feel for the locals and a greater understanding of what this community has gone through to be where they are now.

Island Life Tour

With Norfolk Island located 1,412 kilometres off the east coast of Australia, being so far from the mainland makes you wonder how food, fuel, and other goods travel to Norfolk Island. The Island Life Tour answers these questions and more. During this six hour tour, you will spend a delightful day learning about modern island life, including:

·         The island’s ethnic groups

·         Nationalities present on the island

·         Languages spoken, including the Norfolk Island indigenous language

·         How and where islanders are born, educated, find work and careers, and attend various churches

·         Health and medical services

Your experienced guide will explain the eight original family groups and how their cultural traits are fostered and valued in today’s daily life. Plus there’s a two course, island-style lunch at Governor’s Lodge. What a perfect way to end the tour!

The Natural Wonders of Norfolk Island Tour

One of the best reasons to travel to Norfolk Island is for its natural beauty. Sheer rugged cliffs and outcrops of basalt contrast against the iconic Norfolk Island Pines and the verdant green island interior.

During this tour learn about the geological marvels of the island. These spectacular formations are the result of volcanic creation three million years ago. Your guide will show you the endemic and introduced species of trees, shrubs, plants, flowers and fruits. Keep a keen eye out for the resident and migratory bird life. You might be lucky enough to see or hear the call of the endangered Norfolk Island Green Parrot.

Morning tea is included on this half-day, morning tour. Don’t miss this tour, it’s a fantastic inclusion to your Norfolk Island itinerary and the perfect way to start the day.
