A relatively new lawn bowls tournament the Norfolk Island Bowling Club purposefully earmarked February because it’s such a lovely time to visit the island. Its true bowlers from New Zealand and Australia enjoy Norfolk for the renowned friendly and social lawn bowls comps. But also unquestionably, there’s the attraction of enjoying a holiday on Norfolk Island at the same time.
Mind you Norfolk Island is pretty good all year round, unlike other clubs in Australia and New Zealand the club greens remains open throughout the year for bowling action. Tourist accommodation is conveniently located (some next door) to the bowling club so driving after play is optional.
Those who are lucky enough to triumph on the greens will be rewarded with excellent cash prizes AU1500 first prize, AU$1000 second prize and AU$500 third prize.

Norfolk Island Travel Centre is an award winning travel agency that specialises in quality, personalised travel. Norfolk has a unique beauty of its own, with its renowned tall majestic pines, sheer cliff faces, coral reefs and beautiful beaches. Almost one third of the island is devoted to National Parks and Reserves. But Norfolk Island is far more than a picturesque island in the South Pacific, it is paradise with a past. What was once a convicts’ nightmare is now the tranquil home of the descendants from the Mutiny on the Bounty, who have their own unique culture and their own language. There is much to see and do on Norfolk Island: fascinating historic tours, see Kingston which is a World Heritage Listed area,outdoor re-enactments of the Bounty Mutiny (with parts played by actual descendants of Fletcher Christian), ‘Light and Sound’ shows, eco-tours, glass bottom boat coral reef trips, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, dining out in the numerous fine restaurants, bush walking, scenic horse riding, golf on what has been called the world’s most beautiful golf course, bowls, tennis, and squash. Take advantage of Norfolk's tax-free shopping or perhaps simply take some time out to relax and enjoy Norfolk's peaceful existence.
