Norfolk Island

Welcome to beautiful Norfolk Island, a South Pacific island with a rich history; once inhabited by Polynesian and Micronesian communities centuries ago, Norfolk Island also bears the remains of European penal colonies. A place where you can experience 360 degrees of history, nature, and adventure, Norfolk Island is an ideal holiday destination for escaping daily life. For those interested in history and culture, make the most of your stay on Norfolk Island with a visit to one of Norfolk’s four museums. You can also learn more about the island’s past at the Kingston UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you will tour through various historic military and government buildings. The island also has strong connections to Australian LGBTQIA+ history; reports of gay couples living together date back as early as 1846, and Norfolk led the charge towards marriage equality in 2014.

For lovers of nature, Norfolk is home to 32 kilometres of coastline to explore, with ample opportunities for water sports like snorkelling, surfing, and fishing. After a long day of exploring, treat yourself to one of the many self-care experiences available on the island, like a hot rock massage, a yoga session, or an evening of stargazing. Norfolk is also a foodie’s paradise, with rich soils producing fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables served in world-class restaurants across the island. Getting to Norfolk Island is no trouble, with three flights departing weekly from Brisbane and Sydney. For a welcoming South Pacific experience in a fast-developing tourism destination, Norfolk Island is the perfect getaway for Australia’s LGBTQIA+ travellers.
