Norfolk Island Travel Centre is inviting visitors to one of the best vantage points for the solar eclipse, and to enjoy a week of astronomy with James Barclay. On 14th November the sun will be 98% eclipsed by the moon and the conditions on Norfolk Island should be excellent.

James says Norfolk Island is ideal “… because the island has no light pollution, the night skies are so dark the whole island is bathed in starlight from horizon to horizon…”

On eclipse day, the group will assemble before sunrise on a private property overlooking the ocean. During the evenings visitors will marvel at the green laser pointer guided tour of the night skies and the close up view of stars and planets by powerful telescope. Photographers will have the opportunity and tuition from James to take award-winning astro pics from various scenic spots around the island.

The Travel Centre is offering a special holiday package that includes return flight and airfare taxes, seven nights twin share accommodation, car hire, airport greeting and transfers, half day island tour, welcome dinner under the stars, cliff top fish fry, alfresco BBQ, farewell dinner, a bonus shopping card with free gift and entry to miniature golf and Norfolk Island’s A Walk in the Wild tour attraction, prices from $1795 per person ex Brisbane and from $1845 per person ex Sydney.

Norfolk Island Travel Centre

Norfolk IslandTravel 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.
