    A visit here is well worth while, best done with a guide who can tell you the stories of a lot of the graves

    The four museums are equally fascinating in their own way. All have very well presented exhibits and friendly. welcoming staff who happily explain aspects of the museums and indeed the whole historic site. It's great that you can spread your visit over several days. We added on the Cemetery Tour and our guide, Sallie, was excellent.

    This is a must-do if you enjoy this type of activity .
    Bought two sets of snorkelling gear from BCF before we headed to Norfolk Island after reading about how good it is.
    Went most days just before low tide which we found out from the tourist information centre.
    The water is crystal clear and spent around 1 hour in the water each time.
    Park your car only 20 metres from the water.
    So many fish and coral reefs to be found.
    I think they recognise me after a week and saw my first Moray Eel most days which was a highlight.

    A must-visit when you are at Norfolk Island.
    Just a short drive up Rooty Hill Rd which is a turn-off driving along Quality Road. Fabulous views overlooking Kingston and Slaughter Bay and to your left the golf course and cemetery. Also great views of Phillip and Nepean Islands .

    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 .

    Well worth the small climb up Flagstaff Hill for beautiful views over Kingston and the Bay.
    A few chairs up the steps for a breather and to admire the views.

    Like much of Norfolk Island there is much history to be found and the Bloody Bridge is just another story of the past.
    Well worth visiting only a short drive along Quality road past the cemetery.
    Stop and take a few photos and read the story about its history.
    Drive a little further up the hill for some fantastic views over Kingston

    The outside of the Church is very plain as it was a government building. The father of a friend had been the minister of this church in the 1940s. We were surprised that there are few services held. There was none on Palm Sunday when we visited. Very clean and well kept, it is worth a look.

    What a fabulous little course, set on a wonderful piece of land.

    This 9 hole little beauty, with 18 tees, will test you and wow you all at the same time.

    Andrew, Kylie, and Cheryl will give you a warm welcome in the well stocked proshop, and Josa, along with her staff, will sort your drinks out after the round.

    Do yourself a favour and bring your clubs for a hit or hire a set here, but it is a must do for any golfer heading to Norfolk Island.
