1 Norfolk Island
Watawieh and welcome to Norfolk Island. Settle into your resort, your home for the next seven nights, and meet your Tour Director and fellow travellers over a welcome dinner. (D)
2 Emily Bay

Norfolk Island has a colourful history spanning more than 600 years. The earliest settlers were believed to be East Polynesian seafarers who arrived around the 14th or 15th century, stayed for a few generations and then left. Captain Cook was the first European to encounter Norfolk Island in 1774 and described the island as paradise. Start your day with a visit to the historic Chapel of St. Barnabus before browsing the local markets. Discover the history, charm and key landmarks of the island, visit picturesque Emily Bay and enjoy the fresh sea air and crystal clear waters. 

The first prison colony was established on the island in 1788 and lasted until 1814. The island was abandoned until 1825 when an even harsher convict era began, which lasted until 1855. Visit Kingston, the World Heritage-listed convict settlement and hear stories from this time. Walk amongst the convict gaol ruins and learn about the historic and current uses of the pier buildings and other historic landmarks in the area. A guided tour of the maritime museum introduces artefacts from the HMAS Sirius, flagship of the First Fleet which sank off Norfolk Island.

Enrich Learn about the unique language of Norfolk Island, a fascinating mix of English and Tahitian, created by the Bounty mutineers and their Tahitian wives. (B/D)
