Norfolk Island National Park & Botanic Garden, Norfolk Island

(140+ reviews on the web)
National Park
Comprised of three islands with some of the most beautiful hiking in the region, Norfolk Island National Park & Botanic Garden is practically untouched by human development. Thick evergreens blanket the crags along the coast where you'll find lookout points with plaques providing information about sights in the vicinity. Hike to Captain Cook's Monument, which pays homage to the famous captain who named the island, then visit Mrs. Moore's Botanic Garden. Mrs. Moore purchased property on Norfolk island in 1949 and began cultivating the local plant species inside her own garden. Wanting to share her collection of local fauna with the public she allowed the Norfolk Island Administration to take over in 1975. Tour this labor of love as the artfully arranged Norfolk Botanic Gardens.

  • The Botanic Garden is not an easy walk. It consists of wooden boardwalks and stairs on the side of a hill. Whilst it is still accessible for wheelchairs it is quite difficult for others, especially ol...  more »
  • On the Mt Pitt road 2 minutes drive from town centre this is a must see. Extensive boardwalks make this easy to navigate the gardens. No walk is really long and stairs are few so walking is easy.  more »
