A popular tourist destination, Norfolk Island has become a haven for families looking for a relaxing, action filled family holiday. The newly released 'kids stay free' offer will further tempt families this Summer.
Norfolk Island is a destination ideal for families, there are not many places in the world where drivers wave as each car goes by, the beep of a car lock and unlock is completely foreign, all fresh food is seasonal or pulled from the sea and where children have such wonderful safe freedom
Family favourites include coastal and rainforest walks to see Norfolk’s endemic plants and birdlife, horseriding, fishing, miniature golf and swimming from what must be one of the safest beaches on the planet.
Emily Bay lagoon is naturally protected by a stunning above and under water, coral reef. On low tide the bay is like a lake, swim to the pontoon in its centre, go snorkeling, kayaking or see the underwater world by popular glass bottom boat. On high tide get set to take the body board down for some extremely tame, 5-year-old perfect, kiddie surf.
Join the locals at one of two jetties to toss in a line for a family feast - no pressure Dad, the island has top notch back up fish and chip shops. It’s too easy to slip in some educational activities Norfolk Island has an amazing history and remarkable stories. Walk the reef to see if you can spot the old causeway where the HMS Sirius sank during the First Fleet Settlement. Visit A Walk in the Wild for interactive touch and tell stories scattered throughout the rainforest. Pick a tour from Norfolk Island Museums or take an iPod tour through the Second settlement ruins and the island’s historic cemetery, which is also very handy to rock pool adventures at Cemetery beach.
Top it off with some great shopping for everyone, beauty products for Mum, shoes for Dad and a huge range of toys including the cheapest Lego in the world.
