Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lone pine tree stands next to Emily Bay. There are others nearby, but it is by itself. It has been doing that for quite some time, in windy conditions, as it is evident by its angle. You'd think nothing else of it, if you weren't told Cook sketched this thing when he visited Norfolk Island. So that's it claim to fame. It's been around that long.

An old lady actually parked her blue rental car right in front of this tree causing much anger from people trying to take photos of it. She had no idea why this was an issue and stubbornly stayed there until they got back on their tour bus and left.

Actually this is quite a bit of a problem throughout the Kingston World Heritage Area. There aren't any marked spaces, it's just dirt everywhere and although common sense should kick in, it is not crystal clear where you should be parking, so people just park wherever they feel like, and if they are old (which a lot of tourists on Norfolk Island are) usually as close to whatever they plan on walking to that they can. Many photographs of ruins and historic buildings in Kingston will unfortunately have rental cars in them. If you rent a car on Norfolk, try to be considerate of photographers when you park.

One very famous tree is the lone pine overlooking Emily Bay.
Has been standing since the first arrivals many years ago.
Great spot to capture the sunset, and BBQs ( free ) are located not far to enjoy as well .

With an excellent view across Emily and Slaughter Bays, and to Nepean and Phillip Islands, this is a great spot to take in the beauty Norfolk Island offers.

We were told, and I hope it is true, that this tree was there when Cook passed by. It was apparently captured in a sketch at the time so perhaps it is true.

Great to visit and get a photo of this historic pine tree. It is included in the half day tour and well worth hearing its story

From Lone Pine we got great views of the nearby islands as well as Emily Bay. On one of our several visits here we watched the school swimming carnival - very exciting. Emily Bay itself has such clear water and is very safe for swimming or snorkeling. Watching the waves break over the reef near Lone Pine was quite spectacular.

Apparently Captain Cook made a note/sketch of this pine so it is significant. Hard to believe it is till there standing by itself? Great spot to take pictures of Emily Bay.

our coach tour stopped at this picturesque location for photos but unfortunately, I got some grit (sand?) blown into my eyes by a gust of wind through the open windows of the coach just as we stopped and spent the next five minutes trying to get it out. Missed out on the photo opportunity.
