More about Norfolk
Norfolk Island plays an important part in Australia’s settlement history, with Captain James Cook being the first European known to have sighted the island in 1774. Before this, Norfolk Island was initially settled by East Polynesian seafarers who arrived in the 14th or 15th century long before European settlement. Both of these settlements are still celebrated and acknowledged through historical sites and museums on the island today. In 2021, Norfolk Island has a small population, making up a close-knit community that is welcoming of visitors who are willing to respect their home.
