About Norfolk Island

Norfolk, a lush and tranquil island country, is situated in the South Pacific Ocean, to the east of Australia and north of New Zealand. The island, known for its distinctive pine trees, features a figure of this pine tree on its flag.
The island, with dormant volcanoes, is characterized by rugged plains. While Norfolk Island has a population representing diverse ethnicities, including descendants of Bounty mutineers, Australians, New Zealanders, and Polynesians, it doesn't have an extensively varied ethnic makeup.
Religious preferences among the residents are quite diverse, including Anglicans, Roman Catholics, Seventh-day Adventists, and Australian Christians. Alongside the local language, English is also the official language, facilitating easy communication.
Kingston, serving as the capital of Norfolk Island, captivates visitors with its unique historical structure. Despite being the capital, Burnt Pine is the island's primary economic center. Emily, Slaughter, and Anson Bays offer visitors the island's most beautiful beaches. Access to the country is provided through Norfolk Island Airport located in the capital. Speed limits in most areas of the country range from 50 to 80 km/h, with an interesting detail – cows also have the right of way on the roads.
Norfolk Island offers various accommodation options, including boutique hotels, luxury accommodations, and rental holiday homes. The Norfolk Island Country Music Festival, organized by the Norfolk Island Country Music Association, stands out as one of the island's most famous festivals. The festival attracts participants from Australia, New Zealand, and Norfolk Island. Another significant festival on Norfolk Island is the Food Festival, where the island's cuisine is introduced to the world with the participation of many tourists.
Due to its diverse population, Norfolk Island's cuisine may vary in different regions. However, generally, seafood, fresh fruits, and vegetables are commonly used. Traditional dishes include pilhai with sweet potatoes, bananas, or pumpkin, hihi pai – a sea snail tart, and mudda, a type of banana dumpling.
