Where To Picnic In Paradise On Norfolk Island

The only thing that will drag your eyes away from the views on a picnic in paradise will be the taste of the home-grown Norfolk Island food.

Norfolk Island is full of wonderful picnic spots where you can relax on thick, green grass while you gaze over the ocean or sit comfortably at picnic tables.

Madeline Ponti is a local who knows all the best spots, but she is happy to share her tips and send you off on your way with one of her Picnic in Paradise hampers made with the freshest local produce.

Here are five top picnic spots to enjoy. On the day, just remember to pick your spot according to the wind direction so you are sheltered and comfortable..

FIVE TOP SPOTS FOR A PICNIC IN PARADISE

MOUNT PITT LOOKOUT

The steep road to the top of Mount Pitt takes you to a small picnic area where the 360-degree view shows you the whole island. There's a table (if someone is not standing on it) and plenty of grassy areas to relax in.

​ANSON BAY

The drive to Anson Bay takes you on a bumpy road but the views from the long cliff top stretch are definitely worth it. Puppies Point is a must for a sunset picnic in paradise.

CAPTAIN COOK MONUMENT

Marking the landing point of Captain James Cook, this spot affords a memorable view. There's a large grassed space with tables or wander down to the boardwalk and picnic there. It is worth allowing extra time to complete the bridle track coast walk.

EMILY BAY

Under the pine trees at Emily Bay is a spot where you can while away many hours. Take an ocean dip, check out the coral, climb over the rocks or just relax. It's all there.

TWO CHIMNEY RESERVE

Just past Two Chimneys Winery is a little spot that offers ocean glimpses amongst the verdant greenery. There are some picnic tables here, and plenty of space to lay out your blanket. A small walk down a steep hill will take you to a lookout to Ball Bay.xt here ...
