There are a lot of preconceived ideas about Norfolk Island when you ask people about travelling there. Some may be valid, but most are just residue of an era gone by. Not many people would tell you about the amazing food and great little cafes, the stunning views and beautiful lagoon-type beach and subtropical reef, the challenging golf course or the outstanding fishing. Very few, if any would tell you about a luxury holiday in paradise…
But times are changing on Norfolk Island and luxury is the latest talk coming out of the small (but no small wonder) 8km by 5km Island in the middle of the South Pacific.
