Discovering Norfolk Island

When people think of the pacific islands they can visit most have thoughts that run to Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, or further afield at the Cook Islands, Samoa or Tahiti. Few tend to think of our more temperate options – Lord Howe Island, or in this case Norfolk Island.


With year round temperate climate, Norfolk has a vast array of things to offer all kinds of travellers. Its natural beauty and wonders allow one to experience anything from walks along the Bushland trails to Glass Bottom Boat trips over their reefs. The early and fairly dark convict heritage is still evident and a fascinating glimpse into the history of the Island. For art lovers there are galleries, museums and more to explore. For those looking for pampering there are spas and wellness centres to experience. For the sportsman there is fishing, horse riding, golf and more. Then there are also the beaches and the water activities. More than enough to see, admire and enjoy.

This fantastic destination is where we are headed for our first group departure with the Shoalhaven Solo Sisters. This March we depart on a seven-day journey to explore Norfolk Island, while we have included some true highlights in our package – we have also left plenty of free time for those that may want to pursue their own desires, be it an art class, a round of golf, or a stroll along one of the Hiking Trails.

You can find full details of our tour here, and should you want to enquire or find out more details just fill in the form at the bottom of that page. We will be restricting the amount of travellers we take, so it will be on a first in best dressed basis. We will also try to match everyone up with an appropriate partner, or if desired we can offer single supplements.


So if my expounding on the wonders of Norfolk hasn’t whetted your appetite, or the images we have shown .. take a look at the below clip produced by the Norfolk Island Tourist Board, and you will see, we are sure, that Norfolk has something for everyone.

  1. Hi from Gail Interested but would like to know do you have transport from the Shoalhaven to all or any start of your destinations (ship in Sydney or Airport etc ) either included or extra??? I think it is fantastic that you have Solo trips and I have a few friends that like myself have lost their husbands and still wont to fill their Bucket List.

    • G’Day Gail.

      All of our tours are based as packages ex-Sydney or the varying international ports people will be departing from as not everyone is from the South Coast. Having said that many travellers are from the Shoalhaven, Illawarra and Sutherlandshire areas and yes we can arrange transfers to the airport and the cruises to go with the major packages, but these are at extra cost.

      Also our thanks for the support – the reasons you mentioned (amongst others) are what prompted this initiative. Travel for singles has always been harder due to the burden of additional costs and we are hoping to help people work around that.

      No our tours technically start and end in Sydney (at least Norfolk Island) but we can and will help organise transfers to and from the airport for those seeking them. Please feel free to contact us on (02) 4421 5577 for more information
