Nature

Luxury escape on stunning Norfolk Island

Norfolk Island is a Pacific paradise right on your doorstep. With crowd-free beaches leading to turquoise waters, a pristine
environment of lush-green valleys and rainforest trails, and fresh seasonal produce gracing plates the day it’s picked, Norfolk is also a natural wellness destination. Enjoy tranquil, calm surrounds to unwind and relax, or take advantage of the many tours and activities available to be as active as you like.

The experience

Indulge in a luxury escape with Norfolk Island Travel Centre’s Wellness Package. The package includes return airfares from Sydney or Brisbane, seven nights twin-share accommodation, seven days car hire, exclusive half-day island tour, the Norfolk Whey tour at Hilli Goat Farm, a private one-hour yoga class followed by a one-hour Thai massage, a two-course meal at The Homestead and a Breakfast Bushwalk.

Choose your accommodation at The Tin Sheds, Tintoela or Whitewood Sea, all of which offer stunning, tranquil and calm surroundings. The Tin Sheds boasts luxury premium boutique-style accommodation, surrounded by beautifully landscaped private gardens. Tintoela is island elegance at its best, with three luxury boutique cottages set among four acres of tropical gardens. At Whitewood Sea, guests will enjoy magnetic views across Creswell Bay to majestic Phillip Island from a beautifully appointed, newly renovated house.
The best way to begin your holiday is on the exclusive half-day Island tour in the company of a knowledgeable local guide. You’ll gain your orientation to the island’s rich and varied past, geography, culture and daily island life.

You’ll also want to experience a real taste of Norfolk Island life with the Norfolk Whey tour at Hilli Goat Farm. Learn about the farm’s history as you stroll around the amazing edible gardens and, of course, meet and interact with some of the “hilli” goats in residence.

Take time out from exploring to pamper yourself with the included private one-hour yoga lesson at Norfolk Island Yoga, followed by a 60-minute therapeutic Thai yoga massage which induces a calming mental state using assisted yoga postures, massage, acupressure, energy work and meditation.

The food

As part of your package, you will enjoy a two-course dinner at one of Norfolk Island’s top dining experiences, The Homestead Restaurant. Set in a 1930s island home, the restaurant pairs simple ingredients with the elemental technique of cooking over embers to enhance the contemporary dining experience using seasonal local produce, meat and seafood. At the heart of the kitchen is the wood-fuelled Argentinian parrilla grill, engineered by the father of owner Kurt. It is a gastronomic journey of all Norfolk Island has to offer.

Other self-book dining options on Norfolk include booking a gourmet picnic and relaxing at sunset, glass in hand, at one of the island’s many clifftop picnic areas. There are numerous restaurants with sumptuous spreads catering to all dining preferences and dietary requirements. Paddock-to-plate is the norm on sustainable-minded Norfolk Island, with much of the delicious produce having been picked that day.

It’s worth getting up early to join the included Breakfast Bushwalk that will take you through diverse habitats from rainforest to clifftops, between enormous pines and white woods, surrounded by sea birds. Your efforts will be rewarded with a delicious barbecue breakfast with all the trimmings.

The package also includes a visit to the Hilli Goat Farm for the Norfolk Whey tour, located on a stunning clifftop property at Anson Bay. Meet the cheeky goats, learn about the milking and cheese-making process, then sit down to a delicious Hilli Goat feast of beautiful local produce, handmade cheeses and breads, fresh fish and so much more, all washed down with a complimentary glass of wine. Owners Emily and Zach recommend visitors arrive with a good appetite to savour all the goodies on offer.
