    Gain an understanding of Norfolk Island’s economy and cuisine by touring a plant nursery, vegetable farm and winery.

    After departing from the pier, you will begin a leisurely drive around cliff-rimmed Norfolk Island, a tiny speck in the South Pacific more than 400 miles from the nearest landfall. Being isolated, Norfolk Island has had to become self-sufficient, as you will soon discover.

    Your first stop will be a nearby nursery with an inventory of more than two million Kentia Palms. These elegant, highly valued palms are grown for export throughout the world, but primarily to Holland. You will see how the palms and namesake Norfolk Island pines are cultivated and protected from diseases that could undermine the industry.

    Then, it’s on to one of Norfolk Island’s largest produce farms, a 28-acre enterprise that supplies more than 50% of the island’s vegetables. As you drive along, be sure to notice the rows of banana plants that serve as windbreaks to protect the crops. There is also a piggery on the property that supplies meat and manure for the production of methane gas.

    Because of the island’s limited size, wine making isn’t a huge industry, but there is a boutique winery named Two Chimneys. While here, you will sample several of its varietals, sparkling wine and an elegant tawny port. Afterwards, you will return to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of easy walking/standing and there will be some steps to negotiate. Due to a lack of storage space on the vehicles and lack of accessibility at the venues, the tour is not available to wheelchair guests. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Layered clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
