The walk through the wood is fairly straight forward. The bird life is incredible with terns, black noddies and the red tailed tropic bird flying so close. Sometimes they just hover in front of you. If you look above we were lucky to see some of the birds nests and their young. Once you reach Rocky Point you are rewarded... More

Bit disappointed as before starting I had decided to do the shorter walk but when the driver told us we had no choice but to do the long walk because of buses on that day I have had strokes, have a total knee replacement and struggled all the way Thank goodness many fellow walkers offered assistance One of our party...

Hundred Acres Reserve was first farmed during the Colonial Settlement and is named after "One Hundred Acre" farm established in the area during the second settlement. It contains the largest area of coastal pine and white oak left on the island. Lovely walks thru the pines and onto coastal viewing

This Reserve is well worth a visit. The walk is a little hilly in parts but not too arduous and the view from Rocky Point is well worth the effort. A good spot to see terns and the redtailed tropicbird. One of our favourite walks on the island.

A new restaurant outing within a few blocks of office. We had a group of about 10 who were accommodated very comfortably. The daily menu is eclectic, but I would not advise the squid ink pasta with seafood, only because it is so dark you cannot see what you are eating. It was delicious, but also messy - the squid...

This is a great short walk through forest area and great views of the southern side of the island. When we attended in September, the terns were nesting and we had hundreds fly overhead close to us. It was a great experience.

An area set aside from human development. Well maintained access track. Good for birds, flora and closeness of the sea. A must experience on Norfolk Island.

Quite a lot to see and do here. First, park up at the north end of the giant Moreton Bay Fig trees on New Farm road, (which are a must see) this will position you right across the road from the entrance to 100 Acre Reserve and Rocky Point Reserve. Not suitable for wheelchairs unfortunately as its more of a... More

The walk down to Rocky Point was through beautiful wooded areas, including stands of tall tree ferns. We spotted many parrots and sea birds and saw several muttonbird holes. The coastal views from the point were clear and spectacular. Don't miss the amazing fig trees back out on the road.
