    Your Itinerary

    For six out of seven nights of this unique holiday you'll be out enjoying dinner and shows and having what you'll remember as some of the best times of your life. You'll have days to simply relax, as well as days of included activities and sight-seeing. Norfolk Island is just waiting for you.

    "To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries" - Aldous Huxley


    Fly to Norfolk Island ready to start your adventure. Pick up your car and drive to your lovely, comfortable ocean-view accommodation.

    Ocean view accommodation

    The rest of the day is yours to explore the town and meet some of the towns-folk before a very special dinner. Tonight you'll join a group of other visitors to Norfolk Island on a wonderfully social, three-course "progressive dinner" between different Norfolk Island family homes. Each home offers a beautifully-cooked, local meal and an opportunity for you to learn more about Norfolk Island from those who know it best - the locals. It will be a fun night and a great opportunity for you to meet some locals and other island visitors.

    DAY 2:

    Today is a free day for you to quietly explore Norfolk Island and just relax. The main towns of Kingston and Burnt Pine are quaint and interesting to visit. You can also soak up the sun on one of the island's pristine beaches and enjoy the unique beauty and quietness. Tonight you'll be treated to the informative Sound and Light show, showcasing the convict history of Norfolk Island. Dinner is by your own arrangement at the RSL club and bistro or one of the local restaurants.

    DAY 3:

    Today you will be enjoying the pristine waters off the coast of Norfolk Island on a glass bottom boat tour. See the beautiful reef and watch the colourful fish from the boat as your tour guides share their knowledge of the marine life unique to Norfolk Island.

    Mutiny on the bounty theme runs through the included dining and entertainment

    Tonight is the famous "Fletcher’s Fate Mystery Dinner". Fletcher Christian, leader of the Mutiny on the Bounty, had a very interesting life and a mysterious death. This evening the performers will shed light on those goings-on while you enjoy a wonderful three-course dinner.

    DAY 4:

    Today we recommend exploring the island further including the remains of the convict settlements which are free to visit. We also recommend visiting Norfolk Island Museum, home to numerous historic artefacts including a large display from perhaps Australia's most important shipwreck, HMS Sirius, the First Fleet's flagship. Tonight you'll have a meal on the west side of the island, a feast of local dishes and entertainment called "Island Fish-fry".

    DAY 5:

    Today’s activity is a tour of the home of famous author Colleen McCullough. This luxurious and private sanctuary is where some of her best-known works were written. It's also famous for its many priceless artefacts from around the world. After the tour you have the afternoon to relax before tonight’s special experience.

    Huge fun night as a convict with dinner and entertainment

    A joyful and jovial night awaits you at Norfolk Island’s only dinner and dance night, with a twist: you’ll be dressed as a convict. Dinner, singing and dancing in convict costume will make this an unforgettable night.

    DAY 6:

    Take your choice of a stroll through Hundred Acres Reserve, or for the more energetic a leisurely 3.5km walk through scenic Mt. Bates to Captain Cook Monument.

    Bush walk or stroll with barbecue breakfast

    At the end of the walks you meet on the clifftop for a delicious breakfast barbecue. (These walks are not recommended to anyone with medical conditions). If you prefer not to rise early and bush walk, but would like to have breakfast on the cliff top, you can join the walkers at Anson Bay.

    Wonderland at night, entertaining and informative

    Tonight's entertainment is Wonderland by Night. The setting is 10 acres of magical Norfolk pines & bushland lit up like an enchanted forest. Meander along (or ride in the ’moon buggy’) a gentle winding path with Matt Bigg – a descendant of the Bounty mutineers, as he recites poems and lights up the diorama. Dinner is by your own arrangement.

    DAY 7:

    Today we recommend visiting Emily Bay. If you like snorkelling, the reef is beautiful and there's a good chance you'll encounter some of the turtles that are often seen here. Tonight, for dinner we recommend Bailey's Restaurant at the Governor's Lodge, a beautiful place to spend your last night on this 8km by 5km island gem.


    Today is your last day on Norfolk Island. After checking out and returning your car it's time for you to fly back home to reminisce on your holiday at this charming destination.

    "Just to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had in Canada/Alaska thanks to Ben. He did a great job with our Travel Itinerary everything went to plan I would recommend Australian Escapes and this holiday to my friends and family we are definitely going to do this holiday again. I did give Ben a ring and thanked him and told him what a great job he did. We are looking forward to our next holiday with Australian Escapes." Rosanna M.

    "I was one of the ladies who went with Cherrie to Norfolk. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and thought you did a marvellous job organising it all for us. The accommodation in both Sydney and Norfolk was outstanding - I had never been to either places before and could have stayed much longer in Sydney, as the view from our hotel windows was wonderful. Everyone on Norfolk was so friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble. Thank you so much for making our holiday so enjoyable." Jan W.

    "Hi, have finally returned. Wonderful, wonderful trip. We think we loved Paris and its age/artworks but all was full of laughter fun and learning. Paris apartment was beautiful, & quiet when windows were closed, which wasn't bad anyway. The street is full of lots of restaurants and cafe's. (we also loved Shakespeare & co bookshop.) Fruit and chocolates in most rooms and champagne which I think we only drank in Brussels. we were ready for bed everywhere else though we almost had it for morning tea at Amsterdam on check in. Magnificent. Cheers." Val C.

    "Have just returned from our wonderful trip to the UK. Just wanted to say a huge thanks for your organisation, we had the best holiday ever, an absolutely marvellous time, the tour was magnificent. We would recommend the Trafalgar Britain and Ireland Winter delights tour to anyone who wants to do adventurous travel, learning about other countries, and making friends. The coach was actually over half full of Aussies! Thanks so much for organising such a memorable holiday for us." Lee D.

    "Deb and I are very grateful for the work you have put into our holiday. 10 days in and we are blown away by the quality and location of the motels and apartments. Many thanks." Jen W.

    "My husband and I have recently returned from a holiday to Canada and Alaska booked through Australian Escapes. The itinerary was planned to take in all aspects of the holiday we required. The travel transfers worked seamlessly and the accommodation was at a standard that met our expectations of comfort and location. We absolutely loved the cruise and surprise upgrade to our stateroom. From our experience with this recent trip I would recommend Australian Escapes." Margaret & Bill T.

    "We've arrived back safely after a thoroughly enjoyable trip where all the arrangements ran like clockwork, for which we want to thank you and your team, especially Sonya and Skye. We'd have no hesitation in recommending you and Volga Dream cruises to anyone who asks. Kind regards and thanks again." Irene and Blake S.

    "I want to thank you for all the accommodation you arranged for us during our holiday in North Queensland in August. It was all excellent. The transfers went very smoothly too and we couldn’t have been more pleased with our holiday. Thank you for making everything so easy." Gloria K.

    "My life has been like a whirlwind since I got back. I am now on holidays and catching up with people that I have not had time to contact since coming back. Thank you so much for organising my trip to The States and Canada for me. I had a great time and everything went really well. All flights went well. The hotel you booked me into in Champaign was a really old home with beautiful gardens, all done up and run by two gay guys. It was really quaint and I loved it. I had a great time, everything went without a hitch, I loved all the accommodation that you organized for me and I would like to wish you a happy Christmas and all the best." Marlene S.

    "A message of thanks to you and your staff. The holiday went off without any problems and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and and had a wonderful time. Again many thanks." Dianne D.

    "We are back and rested after a hectic few weeks (away), but everything worked out extremely well. Thanks so much for all your organisation – once you get used to the trains and buses, life becomes easy. Once again, thanks to you and the team for all the organisation from both Lorraine and I – we really enjoyed the holiday. All the best." Bob C.

    "We just wanted to let you know that the arrangements you put in place for us in WA worked beautifully. You said the Margaret River accommodation was exceptional and it certainly was both in terms of location and facilites. Thanks again." Betty and Clancy S.
