Norfolk Island National Parks

Does the idea of national parks, bushwalking, birdwatching, botanic gardens, art galleries, quaint historic churches and museums all on an 8km x 5km island sound like paradise? Well then pack your bags because your Norfolk Island holiday awaits.

Norfolk Island reserves and national parks cover a third of the island and provide a pleasant backdrop for an island steeped in history. Peaceful walking trails meander through rainforest and nature reserves, beaches and rugged cliffs.
There are 9 Norfolk Island bushwalking tracks in total ranging from gentle to moderate and varying in length from 20-90 mins.

Mt Pitt is located in the Norfolk Island National Park and is surrounded by many walking tracks like Palm Glen and the Mt Bates Track. The nearby birdwatching haven of Phillip Island, and other parts of Norfolk, can be viewed atop Mt Bates and Mt Pitt as tracks make their way up the mountain side.

A Norfolk Island map will outline all the walks in the Norfolk Island National Park and is available from Park Headquarters. While you are there, don’t forget to check out the collection of historic information on native fauna and flora. You may also want to make sure you have enough water as the Norfolk Island weather can get hot and there are no drinking facilities provided within the national park so you’ll have to carry your own.

Only a short flight from Australia or New Zealand, Norfolk Island is the perfect travel destination for your next holiday, with a range of accommodation to suit.
