Kate Simpkin’s Norfolk Island Line Dancing Tour

Friday, April 19, 2019


There’s always a special zing in the air when the indomitable Kate Simpkin is on Norfolk with her Line Dancers! There’s a strong possibility that many locals have come across Kate and her group –possibly at the Sunday markets flash-mob dance, kicking up their heels with Lully at Paradise Hotel, or on a number of island tours!


With forty-five dancers in her group, Kate ran five Line-dancing lessons from Rawson Hall, which was also the venue for a Beach Theme Social Night. Other themed dinners included an Op Shop night at the RSL and a Hollywood themed farewell dinner at Bounty Lodge. The group also enjoyed a half day Island tour and Welcome dinner at Paradise Hotel (where Lully had them up and dancing!).  Kate also ran her own Kate’s 5 Star Extra’s where a number of the group also went to dinner at Dino’s, on a Bushwalk & Lunch Kate-Style, to the Maze & Hilli Goat Cheese and Wine ‘Red & Green Strawberry Theme’; and a Fish Feast followed by a Ghost Tour.


At the end of an incredible week of dancing, dressing up, socialising and touring we hope that Kate and all in her group have thoroughly enjoyed their Norfolk Island Line Dancing holiday. We will miss the energy in the air as you depart – and hope to welcome you all back to Norfolk again one day soon.

‘Belinda Biggs Norfolk Island Painting Holiday’.

Friday, March 22, 2019


Inspired by Norfolk’s natural beauty Belinda Biggs is once again set to share her love of the Island when she tutors artists during her 4 – 11 October 2019 Belinda Biggs Norfolk Island Painting Holiday.


Belinda is a leading Australian botanical artist who has been riding high on the crest of amazing artistic success. Not only has she been internationally recognised for her wildlife and botanical art, but is also well known and awarded in other genre painting and drawing work. Her painting NSW Waratah, exhibited in the prestigious ‘Focus on Nature XIII’ at the New York State Museum was recently acquired by the museum for their permanent collection and she was subsequently invited to submit another work for their next exhibition.  In addition, she has been included in the German publication, ‘Who’s Who in Visual Arts – 50 Masters of Realistic Imagery’. Her works are treasured in private and public collections worldwide.


However for all this fame when joining Belinda on her trip, students will also realise that she is a generous and attentive teacher taking care to ensure that everyone from newer to more experienced artists are all individually supported on their artistic journey. Belinda’s love and good knowledge of Norfolk Island is a major asset to this week as she personally selects and introduces each painting location.


As an artist, there could be no better trip to choose to experience an incredible Norfolk Island art retreat and holiday. Belinda has selected a number of tours and meals that are also included in the package price together with daily painting tuition sessions. For further information contact joyce@travelcentre.nf or call on 1800 1400 66.
