“Kingston pier”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Boat launchings on Norfolk Island have to be seen to be believed! Take your camera down and wait for someone to launch their boat. The waves crashing on to the reef are also spectacular here.

“Watch the boats /jet skies”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

We had many trips down to the Kingston pier just to watch the boats being lifted into and out of the water, same has the jet skies. Watching the surfers when there are big waves and the kids jumping into the water.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Watching how the fishing boats are lowered with a winch into the water from their trailer was something amazing. We saw where Queen Elizabeth stepped onto the steps of the pier and the old buildings surrounding the pier are full of history.

“Great Fishing”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

Fished off the pier most nights we were on Norfolk Island. We caught enough Trevally to be able to eat this beautiful fish everyday. Absolutely delicious. Even bought a few home to Brisbane with us. Sunsets were awesome and watching the boats taken into and out of the water was fascinating. However saw some huge sharks swimming in the area.

“Unloading ships”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

Not often on Norfolk do you get the opportunity to see the supply ship being unloaded, and they do it today no different than they did some 225 years ago. And as a bonus we were able to see guests arriving from a cruise liner, which uses tenders to bring them ashore.
