Norfolk Island is growing in popularity as an iconic Australian holiday destination. Between the stunning scenery, rich culture, adventure experiences, and close proximity to Australia’s mainland- it really is the perfect escape. While Norfolk Island is small, there is a wide range of accommodation options to choose from, which is great, but it can make it difficult for you to decide where to stay. Some of the most popular accommodation styles are little self-contained cottages that suit both small parties and larger groups. This allows you to do things at your own pace and have fun cooking a few meals at home with the beautiful local produce. In light of this, here are some of our favorite Norfolk Island Holiday Cottages.

There are 5 different accommodation options to choose from at the lodge, coming in the form of a one-bedroom cottage, two-bedroom unit, and three-bedroom house.
