Norfolk Island is a sub-tropical jewel which lies north of New Zealand and north-east of Sydney, Australia. It was originally a convict settlement then was later settled by the descendants of the sailors who were the survivors of the mutiny on the Bounty. The sailors and their Tahitian wives and families developed a unique language which is still in use amongst the island families today. To be a visitor to the island is a great joy, the scenery is spectacular, temperatures mild and the people are so very friendly. The photos in this article were taken in July 2006, this was my seventh visit and I would love to return again.
