Norfolk Island is largely populated by descendants of Pitcairn islanders and the infamous 'Bounty' mutineers, and has a fascinating and quite unique history. From the shipwreck of the Sirius, a flagship of the First Fleet, and its designation as 'Paradise' by Captain Cook, this sub-tropical island became the site of a remote penal settlement for the most hardened of convicts until it was abandoned in 1855, making way for new settlers. Its spectacular natural beauty is breathtaking, with the purest air, towering Norfolk Pines, striking landforms and crystal waters. A volcanic island with sheer granite cliffs that fall away to pristine water teeming with healthy fish, this is truly a wonderful place to visit. Go scuba diving on the nearby reef, take a glass bottom boat or fishing tour, or explore the local flora and fauna, with many species endemic to the island. Take a walk on the Bridle Path along the northern coast from Captain Cook's monument towards Bird and Elephant Islands, with one third of the island protected natural Reserve, you'll be able to experience its natural and enduring beauty. Visit the World Heritage listed penal settlement site, and the beautiful St Barnabas Chapel. You can explore the island by horseback, enjoy a bush billy tea, and take a swim in the crystal clear turquoise waters of Emily Bay. There are ghost tours, a theatre production inspired by the Mutiny on the Bounty, and museums to visit.
