For a tiny island measuring just eight by five kilometres, Norfolk Island punches above its weight as a food destination. Islanders have access to fresh organic fruit and vegies, local beef and pork, goat’s-milk cheeses, an ocean teaming with seafood and even a winery. Each year, the population of 1400 celebrates the bounty of this produce with Taste Norfolk Island, a week-long festival showcasing the very special food, restaurants and lifestyle enjoyed by locals and visitors to Norfolk.

Highlights of the program include paddock-to-plate dinners, a food market in the old convict jail in the World Heritage-listed Kingston area, a farm walking tour and visits to a pickle factory, chocolate shop and liqueur distillery. A Thanksgiving Day lunch at Emily Bay lagoon is the opportunity to celebrate the island’s founders, who came from Pitcairn Island, and the American whalers who worked the waters surrounding the island in the 19th century.

This year’s Taste Norfolk Festival will be held from November 26-30. Visit norfolkislandfoodfestival.com
