Your Norfolk experience starts here...



Captain James Cook was the first to officially discover Norfolk Island, describing it as “paradise” – a term he did not use liberally in his journals.  From 1788 to 1854, this paradise became a harsh penal colony and home to hapless convicts.  Today, it is home to the descendants of the Bounty Mutineers whose barefoot manners, warmth and hospitality have been woven into the island’s unique and timeless rhythm – a special charm that draws visitors back time and time again.
