Norfolk Island is home to the descendants of the infamous Bounty mutineers and their Tahitian companions which make up a large proportion of the population. The Bounty descendants are the fourth settlement on the Island, the first being a Polynesian settlement followed by 2 penal settlements.

Our team provide a friendly, professional and knowledgeable first impression for arriving visitors as they step onto the pier and are moved to the transit area. We've worked in conjunction with Australian inbound tour operators creating exclusive touring programs for high end cruise brands.

Tourism has been one of the Island's industries for over 70 years and is now the major one. An airstrip was constructed by the United States Army Air Forces during the Second World War and became the Island's main gateway giving birth to a boutique tourism industry.

70 years of growth and expansion later, Norfolk Island has a well established and wide range of activities to offer visiting cruise lines.

Choose from historical, cultural, food, scenic and adventure tours, numerous sporting activities, shopping, markets as well as many other options for passengers to fill a day. Whatever experiences your market is seeking, Norfolk Island can tailor make an encounter that will exceed expectations.

Christmas Island, a dot in the Indian Ocean, located 2600km north-west of Perth, Western Australia and 360km south of Java.

Exploring the waters surrounding the island is also an experience not to be missed. Myriads of tropical fish swim by in only metres of water, while a short distance away, divers can cruise the drop-off which plunges dramatically into the abyss and swim with the visiting whalesharks in the season.

Nothing captures the public imagination quite like the Anzac story. Discover your own sense of national pride when you visit the 1914 departure point where over 40,000 servicemen and women left for Gallipoli. Experience the legend that shaped a nation at the National Anzac Centre – Australia’s foremost museum honouring the Anzacs.

Albany’s special place in the remembrance of the First World War is recognised the world over. Each year on Anzac Day thousands of locals and visitors solemnly gather atop Mount Clarence for the dawn service, looking out over King George Sound to commemorate the diggers who perished in the Great War. Wreaths are laid upon the waters of the Sound, as they have been since 25 April 1930.

Get the wind in your hair and the sun on your back. Dramatic peaks and rugged coastlines are yours for the taking in Albany. Explore the amazing south, where the mountains touch the sea and the ocean touches the land in a vast panorama of rugged beauty that is all yours, right now.

Whale-watch from June to October and experience frolicking whales from whale-watching charter boats off Albany’s coastline, as well as from land-based lookouts. Spot southern right whales and humpback whales during breeding season. Hear humpbacks calling via underwater microphone in King George Sound. Keep your eyes peeled – you might even spot some dolphins, or seals at their favourite spot at Bald Head.

Have a desire to be at one with nature? Albany is surrounded by a plethora of National Parks and nature reserves in every direction. Whichever direction you take, you are spoilt for choice. Torndirrup National Park features massive granite outcrops, sheer cliffs and the famous Gap and Natural Bridge rock formations. Or visit Two People’s Bay, home to one of WA’s best beaches, Little Beach.
