Situated in the South Pacific Ocean, Norfolk Island is located between the coasts of Australia and New Zealand. Boasting rolling hills, a shoreline dotted with lagoons and tonnes of tropical birds, Norfolk Island is a museum of Mother Nature. Although the capital is Kingston, Burnt Pine is undoubtedly the island’s hub. You’ll find most shops and restaurants here, as well as a Sunday market. To learn about the island’s history, pay a visit to Fletcher’s Mutiny Cyclorama – a 360-degree panoramic painting depicting the famous Bounty adventures. Norfolk Island National Park lies to the north and offers a variety of bushwalking tracks, with stunning views from Mount Pitt (316 metres) and Mount Bates (318 metres). Afterwards, you can take in vivid coral reef aboard a glass-bottom boat at Emily Bay. Accommodation ranges from mid-range guest houses to luxury cottages and resorts. If you’re planning some serious shopping, then Burnt Pine is your best bet, with numerous guest houses close to most stores.
