Postcard from Norfolk Island

I recently visited Norfolk Island (for the second time) and again was just blown away by the island's natural beauty and the friendliness of the locals.





It's a destination that's perfect for nature lovers and families, with stunning beaches, the calm water protected by coral reefs; bushwalks through remnant forests, plenty of (tame!) wildlife and so much green everywhere!


A former prison island, history buffs will love exploring the incredible convict-era buildings, or hearing the stories of the Bounty mutineers, the descendants of whoms still live on the island. Fresh air, starry, unpolluted skies and great food - the majority of it grown on the island, are among the myriad of attractions.


In this episode, we hear from Sharyn Quintal, the owner of Prinke Eco Store a cute little shop in the main street that sells great coffee and delicious treats, as well as all kinds of eco-friendly products.


Sharyn, a born and bred islander talks about what there is to do on the island; from cliff-top picnics to snorkelling or taking a glass bottom boat around the sheltered bays, the best vantage points for stunning views, the local laws (cows always have right of way!) and the unique 'Norfuk' language, which is a mix of old English and Tahitian.

Norfolk is such a fascinating island - one of the most interesting places I've ever been. And I'm sure, after listening to Sharyn, you'll be just as intrigued by this Pacific gem.
