We took a night tour and would definitely recommend to others while on Norfolk Island. The stories are amazing, though to hear them at night just adds to the experience.

Visited on a tour and on our own. Well worth hearing about the history of Kingston and Norfolk Island. Take time to look at the museums and explore the area on your own. Walking along the beach at low tide gave some beautiful views.

Very interesting to wander around the layers of history of Kingston. Good photography opportunities and places to sit. Definitely recommend the museum pass. We came to Kingston every day to explore more!

A must visit when on Norfolk Island You get a real feeling of how hard the conditions were. Also the history is presented in the culture of the residents who are so proud of their heritage

I agree with the previous answer- we are aware the work is progressing nicely but not to the extent that cruise ships will be able to berth - we were informed the current unloading procedure would still be carried out.

If you are travelling from outside Australia, you will have to enter Norfolk Island from New Zealand or Australia. You can either book your tours from a Travel Agent there, or from Pine Tree Tours once you're on Norfolk... More
