Do I really need a hire car on Norfolk Island?
When visiting our beautiful island, hiring a car is a must! Although Norfolk Island is a small island, there is no public transport and the island is very hilly. Hiring a car will give you the freedom to explore and fully appreciate our beautiful island, its undulating rural topography, country roads and quaint byways, leading to the beach, rain forest parks, picnic reserves and staggering cliff top panoramas.
The ‘Norfolk Wave’
The ‘Norfolk Wave’ in all its various forms is seen every time you pass another vehicle; yes we acknowledge each other with the raising of a finger, a thumbs up, or the full blown hand wave. Every bus driver, public service vehicles and even the police will give you the friendly Norfolk Wave; please join with us in this island tradition and enjoy the camaraderie of feeling connected.
Sharing the Road with Cows
Moo-ve over because on Norfolk, you share the roads with local cows and they have right of way. Whilst you may at first find it odd and a little intimidating you will quickly adjust to driving with cows wandering freely on our roads. Please be aware that we allow them right of way and in return they keep the roadside cropped and tidy. The speed limit on Norfolk varies but must not exceed 50kph anywhere. Be especially attentive around the school zone limited to 30kph and through the township at 40kph. Seat belts are compulsory and the drink drive tolerance restricted to 0.05 with blood tests often required where an accident or traffic incident occurs.
