There's more to Norfolk Island There's more to Norfolk Island

For those staying in the Burnt Pine township, the area is very walkable. Your dinner reservations are likely just a stroll away. You might find bicycle hire to be a good option; our Visitor Information Centre will be happy to help sort you out. But with over 120 km of road, most visitors opt to hire a car to make the most of their holiday.

Our unspoiled island has no public transport system, but a local Uber is available upon request.

Car Hire

While a decent pair of shoes will be all you require for a day of exploring the town, to make the most of our island from hilltop to waterfront, we highly recommend a hire car as the top choice of transport on Norfolk Island. Get exploring over pine-covered hills with the windows down to catch the fresh ocean air.

There are a few hire options, so do some research before choosing your wheels. Check your accommodation booking before organising an inexpensive hire car yourself, as some properties include one with your stay.
