Norfolk Island is located between New Caledonia, Australia, and New Zealand. It has over 170 native ferns and plants, as well as several unique types of sea birds that come to breed on the island each year. It’s a beautiful destination that is open to the public, but it’s not only for the bird and plant enthusiasts! There is so much you can do on Norfolk Island.
There is a golf course located along the Government House gardens that has a nine-hole course and an 18-hole par of 72. The home of Stipendiary Magistrate has been restored to make the clubhouse, where you can watch the action on the veranda as you enjoy a snack or drink. The mild climate makes for excellent conditions all year round.
If full-blown golfing is not your thing, then why not try some mini golf? A well laid out mini golf course is about half a kilometre up Grassy Road. Check out the toys for the kids at the shop while you’re there!
