A day trip to Phillip Island
For the fit and adventurous. Dependent on the weather and ocean conditions, pre-bookings are recommended. Our on-site managers can assist with this.
There are many wonderful walks on Norfolk Island. Pack a picnic and you’ll be set to enjoy a leisurely meal in another magical setting. Drive to Mt Pitt and take the walking trail to Captain Cook Monument or stroll through the Hundred Acre Reserve. The approach to this reserve has the most magnificent stand of Moreton Bay Figs.
If there were one thing that Norfolk Island is not short of it would have to be stunning views. Puppy’s point is just another example. Best known as a spectacular sunset vantage point, it does not disappoint and is a perfect place to enjoy a picnic.
Another hidden gem on Norfolk Island, and at the bottom of our garden, is the Crystal Pool, a natural rock pool accessed down a steep embankment with a rope trail. It’s an adventure and not for the faint-hearted or unfit! On a calm day at low tide, the pool is magical with beautiful coral and sea life on view.
The sky at night
Norfolk Island is a Gold Level Dark Sky Town, recognised for its excellent dark skies. With little or no light pollution, you will not believe your eyes when you venture out at night.
