Pine trees, rolling green hills, and dramatic cliffs typify Norfolk Island, an Australian offshore territory 1,412 km (877 mi) east of the mainland.
Step out of the city life by going to Emily Bay and Norfolk Island National Park & Botanic Garden. Step off the beaten path and head to Mount Pitt and St. Barnabas Chapel. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Fletcher's Mutiny Cyclorama, contemplate the long history of Kingston and Arthur's Vale Historic Area, contemplate the waterfront views at Anson Bay, and go for a walk through Puppy's Point.
