Weather

Here on Norfolk Island we are spoilt with a balmy subtropical climate year round. Temperatures range from 19° to 28° in summer and 12° to 21° in winter so be sure to pack sunscreen for sunny days and warmer clothes for nights out in the cooler seasons. Check out the latest weather forecast.

 

Medical Services

  • On Norfolk Island, Australian Medicare applies, which includes emergency medical evacuation transfers from the island to mainland Australia. Don’t forget to bring your Medicare, Pensioner and/or Healthcare cards with you.
  • Private travel insurance is highly advised for all visitors who do not have an Australian Medicare card.
  • Our island has similar medical facilities to those available in small rural towns in Australia. The local health facility, Norfolk Island Health and Residential Aged Care Service (NIHRACS), has a General Practitioner clinic with three to four doctors providing care. These doctors deal with all presenting emergencies and manage inpatients. Some dental services are available on the island, including emergency dentistry. There is an ambulance service on the island.
  • There is no operating theatre on Norfolk Island and pathology and x-ray services are limited. Patients with serious illness or those requiring emergency surgery are evacuated to the most appropriate hospital on mainland Australia. The Australian government covers the medivac costs for all those with a Medicare card.
  • Our local pharmacy, Burnt Pine Pharmacy, stocks many medications; however, may not supply less common medications. We advise that you bring sufficient supply of medication for the duration of your stay here and remember to pack it in your carry-on luggage. The Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) and National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) applies on Norfolk Island for those with a Medicare card and NDSS card for that service. 

We wish you a safe and healthy stay on our island.
