Norfolk Island, some 500 nm north of NZ, and 700 nm east of Brisbane, Australia. Daily services by Air New Zealand Airbus A320. Neroli and Bill had 2 days spare out of a 5 day duty, so these are some of the sights that we saw. Despite common legend that it is a place for the “newly weds or nearly deads”, it has a lot to offer other tourists. Click on http://www.norfolkisland.com.au/ or Google Norfolk Island for more information.
In the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s it was a popular destination for groups of Aero Club aircraft to visit, either as a stand alone destination, or as a stepping stone to the rest of the Pacific Islands, or via Lord Howe Island to Australia. Numerous liight aircraft make a stop at Norfolk Is each year, but club trips are not so common now. Most Aero Clubs do not own aircraft with the range or required navigation equipment, but a lot of private owner aircraft, including high performance microlights, do.
Anyway here are some of our photos. Call if you want more information, (but not to book the Cub to go there!!)
