Norfolk Island is an 8 km x 5 km paradise at latitude 29 degrees in the South Pacific.
The island’s major industry is tourism. In fact, tourism-related activities comprise 70% of Norfolk’s economy.
Since the GFC Norfolk has struggled to achieve visitor levels sufficient to provide a sustainable income for the island community. We need to raise the average visitor numbers from 500 per week to 800.
Additionally, our resident population must increase – more people, new ideas, and new investment are essential to also grow the island’s economy. The Norfolk Island Government has set a goal for a resident population of 2,100 people, up from its current level of under 1,700 people.
We are currently raising funds for the 2014 Destination Norfolk Island Travelling Roadshow. If you would like to donate please follow the link below to our funding page.
The monies raised will help to build awareness of Norfolk Island as a great place to live, work, invest, and holiday.
Awareness raising will be via an education program around Australia and New Zealand for six months. This will be a ‘conversation’ with the general population and travel partners about this beautiful and unique destination.
The conversation will be about the lifestyle on offer, and the changes to Norfolk Island immigration laws that allow Australian and New Zealand citizens to become residents.
Our roadshow will consist of two people travelling to the major urban and rural areas of Australia and New Zealand educating travel partners, setting up display booths, handing out information, creating networks, answering questions and offering support to people who would like to visit and /or live on Norfolk Island. You will be able to visit us in shopping centres, and at travel agencies and other travel partners.
There will be daily updates and photos on all forms of social media, with an emphasis on interaction with the general public. What we do will be totally transparent to you.
