GETTING AROUND ON NORFOLK ISLAND



There is no public transport system on the island so it is recommend that visitors to the island take advantage of one of Norfolk's inexpensive car hire companies. Some of the major hotels provide a pick up and delivery service at set times during the day.

There is a Taxi Service available only on request. Norfolk has over 170km of road and most are tar sealed.

The speed limit is 40km/h through town, 25km/h in the National Parks and down at Kingston and Emily Bay. The school zone is 30km/h between the hours of 8.00am until 3.30pm during school days. Out side of these areas the speed limit is 50km/h.

Driving is on the left hand side of the road and locals wave to all passing vehicles which is called the "Norfolk Wave." many visitors to the island spend there holiday learning new waving techniques.

You can get your driving license on Norfolk Island at the age of 16 but to hire a vehicle from the hire companies you must have a current drivers license and be at least 21 years of age.
