There is no better place to be when the mercury rises than a tiny sub-tropical island where the cool sea-breezes make summer sublime and,at Latitude 290, that place is Norfolk Island.
Norfolk Island is perfectly situated to present an ideal summer climate combining with natural beauty, history, unique culture and glorious beaches to create everything you need for a great holiday. In historic, world-heritage listed Kingston, Norfolk’s old town and playground, the beautiful Georgian stone buildings provide a picturesque background to the spectacular lagoon and sandy beaches.
Throughout summer, locals and visitors swim, paddle, kayak, snorkel, surf and sail to their hearts’ content. Equipment can be hired on island and tours are available for kayaking, sightseeing and glass bottom boat trips.
Dotted around the beaches and all over the historic Kingston precinct are barbeques and tables awaiting in amazing settings for a sumptuous picnic and a mobile café at Emily Bay offering that essential ice cream or snack for the serious beachgoer!
Whilst there are top beaches on Norfolk Island, the spectacular National Park and reserves offer a wide range of walking trails suited to both young and young at heart. The bushwalks explore forests, clifftops, bird rookeries and tree fern gullies and discover incredible flora and birdlife that provide one photo opportunity after another. No matter where you go, the vistas will astound you. You can explore on your own or book one of the fascinating tours led by well-informed local guides.
For the more adventurous, there are several ocean fishing charters and many of the island’s restaurants will prepare your fish or you can barbecue your catch on a cliff top while taking in a breathtaking sunset.
Summer isn’t a season on Norfolk Island – it’s a celebration. Come on over this year and join the party!
