The only thing that will drag your eyes away from the views on Norfolk Island picnic will be the taste of the home-grown Norfolk Island food.

Where to picnic on Norfolk Island

Norfolk Island is full of wonderful picnic spots where you can relax on thick, green grass while you gaze over the ocean or sit comfortably at picnic tables. If you don’t want to put together your own picnic, you can order beautifully fresh Norfolk Island local produce from Platters by Paige.

Here are five top picnic spots to enjoy.  On the day, just remember to pick your spot according to the wind direction so you are sheltered and comfortable.

Five top spots for a picnic on Norfolk Island

Before you set out on your Norfolk Island picnic, make sure you have the right picnic gear with these perfect picnic tips.

Mount Pitt Lookout

The steep road to the top of Mount Pitt takes you to a small picnic area where the 360-degree view shows you the whole island.  There’s a table (if someone is not standing on it) and plenty of grassy areas to relax in.

Picnic on Norfolk Island at Anson Bay

The drive to Anson Bay takes you on a bumpy road but the views from the long cliff top stretch are definitely worth it.

Puppies Point is a must for a sunset picnic in paradise.

Captain Cook Monument

Marking the landing point of Captain James Cook, this spot affords a memorable view.  There’s a large grassed space with tables or wander down to the boardwalk and picnic there. It is worth allowing extra time to complete the bridle track coast walk.

Emily Bay

Under the pine trees at Emily Bay is a spot where you can while away many hours on your Norfolk Island picnic.  This gentle, long bay is a popular spot because it has so much to offer. Take an ocean dip, check out the coral, climb over the rocks or just relax.  It’s all there.

Two Chimney Reserve

Just past Two Chimneys Winery is a little spot that offers ocean glimpses amongst the verdant greenery. There are some picnic tables here, and plenty of space to layout your blanket. A small walk down a steep hill will take you to a lookout at Ball Bay.
