I had often heard. "If you have the opportunity you must visit Norfolk Island " An unexpected opportunity did come up and with only a few days' notice I was off ! We were a small group of 12 and for many, first time travellers with Sisterhood. A few of the 'sisters' felt both a little nervous (and excited)but this didn't last too long as we settled into our accommodation and got ready for our first night out at a traditional Polynesian "fish fry " which was an indication of things to come. Norfolk is a tiny island in the South Pacific defined by majestic pine trees and jagged cliffs. Sandy beaches include Emily Bay with its reef protected waters , Anson Bay and Steele Point both with magnificent views of the South Pacific Ocean. Our time on the island was spent exploring the historic colonial site of Kingston with its beautiful Georgian homes , the Governor's House, the old hospital and the convict jail. Many of our guides were "islanders" and direct descendants of Tahitians and HMS Bounty mutineers who were very proud to share their heritage. We enjoyed a morning bush walk in the National Forest , a visit to renowned author Colleen McCullough home, experienced "wetls" - traditional food tasting, enjoyed the local restaurants ,shopping and quickly fell into the easy pace of the island where the free roaming cattle had the right of way on the roads. Most importantly we enjoyed each other's company , whether it was having "pre dinner" drinks, sitting under a tree chatting or strolling on the beach. Lots of laughs and friendships were made so …. "If you have the opportunity you must visit Norfolk Island ".
