Welcome to Burnt Pine Travel
Located in the heart of Norfolk Island’s Burnt Pine shopping and business district is Burnt Pine Travel. A Norfolk Island travel specialist with over 30 years experience, we are small enough to offer personalised service and customised travel, yet large enough to provide complete travel services.
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.
Buildings of the second penal settlement are still in use today and are some of the best examples of Georgian architecture in the southern hemisphere.
