About Norfolk Island

In Peter Clarke’s book The Essential Guide to Norfolk Island, he gives a fascinating account of the blend of history and laid-back informality that make Norfolk Island such a unique destination. Rich and diverse in culture – from the original Bounty Mutineers and their descendants, the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Convict Settlement, to today’s varied and multicultural population, – Norfolk Island has some of the most beautiful scenery you are likely to see. Norfolk Island has to be seen to be believed.
