Cheap flights from Norfolk Island

Norfolk Island used to be a penal colony for the British colony of New South Wales between 1788 and 1814, which abruptly stopped to be continued during 1825 and 1855. It was only in 1856 that it was inhabited by the descendants of the Pitcairn Island inhabitants. Measuring only about 8km by 5km, Norfolk Island is relatively small, yet offers amazing features. Norfolk Island National Park is considered the crown jewel, having had encompassed the northern part of the island. If you find the capital Kingston somewhat desolated, continue your journey and head towards Burnt Pine, which is considered as the residential hub of Norfolk Island.

Where to go

Covering approximately 650 hectares, Norfolk Island National Park offers visitors awesome views from Mount Pitt and Mount Bates, interspersed with a number of bushwalking tracks, allowing visitors to enjoy the view while taking a stroll. There is also a sheltered beach at Emily Bay in the south, wherein visitors can admire the corals aboard the glass-bottom boats. Meanwhile just west of Burnt Pine, you can find the St. Barnabas Chapel, which was built by the Anglicans between 1866 and 1920. If you are interested to know further the history of Norfolk Island, just head to Fletcher’s Mutiny Cyclorama, which offers a 360-degree panoramic painting that depicts the Bounty mutiny and Norfolk Island history.

Suburbs in Auckland are also reminiscent of early European settlements that have good examples of Victorian, Edwardian, Deco, and Bungalow residential styles.
