Today, we enjoy a tour taking us to some of the key historic areas of Norfolk Island, including Kingston, Cascade and Longridge. This is our chance to learn all about the fascinating history of Norfolk Island. We'll see the famous convict buildings and enjoy the stories told as we visit each new place.  Take in the amazing views from the lookouts, where we'll enjoy the beautiful beaches in all their glory. Learn about Norfolk Island government, laws and of course an islander's unique lifestyle.  Some of the highlights include the renowned Melanesian Chapel and a visit to the grounds of an old island home - where we'll enjoy morning tea. 

This afternoon we join the Curious Castaways Tour to learn about the curious tale of English Pirates and Polynesian Princesses.  A quirky melding of two cultures that fashioned a new and very unique way of life.  Includes the island's fascinating early Pitcairner history, Norf'k language, weaving and wetls - a traditional food tasting.

Norfolk Island (B, D)

Today we enjoy Christian's Glaas Bohtom Boet (glass bottom boat) where local Norfolk Islander, Donald, will share his knowledge of Norfolk’s unique marine life.  Once we've ‘walked the plank’ with these ‘mutineer descendants’ it takes just 60 seconds (yes one minute!) to be at the reef.  Here we'll view beautiful coral gardens and tropical fish inside the calm crystal waters of Norfolk’s lagoon.  Donald provides full and interesting commentary during this environmental tour. *Time to be reconfirmed due to tides*

Afternoon at leisure.

Tonight we'll enjoy the popular Island progressive 3 course dinner where we visit 3 different Norfolk Island family homes.  A fun night and a great way to meet the local people and sample some of the island dishes. (White wine and juice is available, feel free to BYO other drinks.

You will see where her books were researched, and Norfolk Island pies made from local eggs and fruit in season. This a glimpse into the life of a modern-day literary icon. If you have read her amazing books, you will love the experience of sharing the world of Colleen McCullough, author of “Tim”, “The Thornbirds” and “Morgan’s Run”.

Day 6 - Saturday 24 February 2024

Norfolk Island (B,D)

Early this morning, take your choice of an easy stroll through 100 acres reserve or for the more energetic, a leisurely 3.5km walk through scenic Mt Bates to Captain Cook Monument. At the end of both walks we meet on the clifftop for a delicious BBQ breakfast. (People not wishing to do a walk, will be able to join the group for the scenic clifftop breakfast).

The rest of the morning is free or you may like to do some shopping in Burnt Pine, as there are some great little shops to visit, including Franks Shoes, or enjoy a coffee at The Olive or the Golden Orb café, just to name a couple.

In the afternoon, we'll experience the totally unique 360° panoramic painting that will take you on an amazing journey - Cyclorama! Feel like you’re really there witnessing the Bounty adventures and discover how the world’s most famous mutiny created the Pitcairn and Norfolk communities.

Conceived by Norfolk Islander Marie Bailey, this gigantic panoramic painting vividly illustrates the story of her ancestor Fletcher Christian, the famous Mutiny on the Bounty and the descendants who settled on Pitcairn and Norfolk Island.  A spectacular 3D effect is achieved with realistic perspective and detailed artwork stretching all the way to visitor’s feet.  Storyboards, lists and maps explain the history in an easy-to-understand way.  The Cyclorama provides a total experience. 

Enjoy a two-course dinner this evening at Bounty Bar & Grill.

Day 7 - Sunday 25 February 2024

Norfolk Island (B,D)

This morning after breakfast, you may wish to take a leisurely stroll down to the local markets at Rawson’s Hall, to see the local produce and arts and crafts on offer.

Later in the morning, we indulge in High Tea at Seriously Chocolate. Enjoy a delicious High Tea where chocolate is seriously devine!

Later, we'll visit the Bounty Folk Museum, which tells the strange and startling history of Norfolk Island, from the harrowing tales of ill-fated convicts brought here, to the against-the-odds survival of the Bounty mutineers and their Tahitian wives. Though, small in size the museum is wide in scope, with lots of artifacts to pore over. Discover Bounty memorabilia, early photographs of Pitcairn settlers, old weapons and some frankly quite terrifying antique medical instruments. Browse handwritten research books and get lost in the page-turning plot of Norfolk Island’s past. You’ll also get a good sense of the day-to-day life on the island, not just the key historical events.

Tonight, we'll enjoy the Murder Mystery Dinner - a 3-course meal fit for the commandants whilst the mystery unfolds… Meet the Commandant, Clergyman & Convicts of this period. Includes true characters from the second settlement. Guaranteed a great fun night out. Solve the mystery and win a prize! BYO drinks
