Quilting organisers say Norfolk Island provides the perfect setting for a craft event. Norfolk’s beautiful landscapes, vistas and rich history help get the creative juices flowing and inspire plenty of new themes and designs.

The Quilters Getaway will see dedicated quilters and patchworkers from Australia and New Zealand master their craft in a series of classes teaching participants a range of designing and fabric art skills.

The Norfolk Island Travel Centre has special packages for travel from $849 per person ex Brisbane for a seven night twin share stay and $1148 per person ex Sydney for a ten night twin share stay. The prices include, return economy class airfare (seat + bag) to Norfolk Island, airline taxes, meet & greet at the airport, self-contained accommodation, car hire (car hire surcharge $18 per day plus petrol is extra), discount shopping card, complimentary miniature golf and complimentary ‘A Walk in the Wild’. Prices are subject to availability.

Registration fee for the classes is an additional $560 per person and includes two dinners, a choice of tutored classes, a welcome pack and much much more!

Norfolk Island Travel Centre

Norfolk Island Travel Centre, located on Norfolk Island, 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.
