Discovering the Unique History and Charm of Norfolk Island

In December, a happy group of adventurers, comprising members of the Palmerston and Darwin Probus Clubs embarked on an expedition to explore the very picturesque and historically significant Norfolk Island.

The group stayed at the Governor’s Lodge, conveniently located in the historical district, close to the beach and many of the area’s famous landmarks. The group enjoyed meals at the Boathouse and Salty’s to name a few.  A highlight was attending the Commandant’s dinner, where actors dressed in period costumes and enthralled guests with tales about the notorious Convict Settlements on Norfolk Island.

A trip to Mount Pitt Lookout was a must where they were treated to 360 degrees views of the island. After admiring the views, the group set off to do the 500-metre summit walk to Mount Bates and back, which was most enjoyable.  The time on Norfolk was well spent exploring, the cemetery, beaches, and historical buildings.
