A Walk in the Wild – The Amazing Natural History of Norfolk Island

Thursday, April 11, 2019


Agnes Hain, one of Norfolk’s most respected tourism entrepreneurs launched the ‘Walk in the Wild Amazing Natural History of Norfolk Island’ DVD and video 5 years ago. 


We now have a digital record of Norfolk’s ecosystem from the volcanic eruption 3 million years ago through to recent times.  You can learn about the work to save several of our endemic bird species from extinction.  Do you know about the world’s tallest tree fern, how the Providence Petrel saved a settlement, or how the root of the routi tree was distilled to produce alcohol?  Be amazed by the bird without a nest, and the bird that can glide for 10 minutes.  Wonder, (like us), where the Whale bird goes after leaving Norfolk each year – it remains a mystery.  Hear Bubby Evans talk in the Norfolk language about how he supplied the local school with ink from the sap of the bloodwood tree up until the 1940s.


This is sure to become one of those ‘must have’ mementos of a Norfolk visit, with profits from its sale going towards scholarships for young Norfolk Islanders.

Kids and Pines and Nursery Rhymes ... by Archie Bigg

Thursday, February 21, 2019


One of Archie’s passions is encouraging the young people to speak the Norfolk Island language. To provide the children with a resource he has chosen a number of popular nursery rhymes and rewritten them in the Norfolk language also giving them a Norfolk Island flavour. 

Talented local artist Tracey Yager has complemented the nursery rhymes with her beautiful illustrations – poor Humpty Dumpty was found by the king’s horsemen down in the convict ruins at Kingston.  He had just fallen off Gallow’s Gate!
