The rest of our day is at leisure to explore down town Norfolk. If you love all things Chanel, Estee Lauder and Gucci, no visit to Norfolk Island is complete without a visit to Ross's Department Store where high end "lotions and potions" are at least 20% cheaper than the mainlnd.
Tonight we'll regroup and enjoy a lovely two course dinner at Hili's Restaurant before experiencing one of Norfolk's most popular attrations - Wonderland By Night. The setting is 10 acres of magical Norfolk pines & bushland lit up like an enchanted forest.

Today is a free day for you to discover unexplored areas of Norfolk Island. Hire cars can be arranged through Castaway's to visit other points of interest.

The choice is yours.
Tonight we regroup for dinner at Castaway's to share the day's experiences.
After dinner we'll experience another of Norfolk's most popular night time activities - the Sound and Light Show - Nightfall at Kingston brings a different mood to the convict settlement. The stillness and the stars are just as they were before mankind arrived in 1788. However, with the dramatic use of real life sound together with theatrical lighting and costumed actors, the stillness is broken as Pinetree Tours takes you through the horrifying decades of Norfolk Island’s convict era.
Day 5 - Wednesday 6 February 2019
Norfolk Island (B,AT,D)
This morning we'll enjoy a beautifully scenic breakfast bush walk.
