At a Glance

Norfolk Island is a direct 2.5h flight from Australia. It's home to the southern hemisphere’s best collection of restored convict built Georgian buildings and structures that are still in community use today – a World Heritage listed living history. Only 8 x 5 kilometres in size, it's packed full of beauty and blessed with a wonderful sub-tropical climate where the great outdoors is yours to enjoy. Visitors can pursue a range of nature-based experiences such as bush walking, sea kayaking, frontier surfing or diving/snorkeling.

When to visit

Peak visitation to Norfolk Island is from about October to March. These tend to be the warmest and driest months, particularly later in the season, when sea temperatures rise. From January to March the remnants of tropical cyclones can sometimes affect the island.
