Norfolk Island: Bounties beyond Norfolk - New Zealand Herald

This "Uluru of the South Pacific" is Phillip Island, an eroded volcano made of basaltic tuff and lava, dating from the Miocene epoch of three million years ago. Lonely Norfolk Island, our nearest overseas neighbour, is a beautiful volcanic outcrop that boasts 101 things to do for holidaymakers. It comes as a complete surprise to find that just 6km south of Norfolk is an island that rivals the vivid reds, oranges and purples of Australia's impressive Ayers Rock. The island is a mass of bright colours: turquoise waters, lush green pastures, stately pine trees and steel grey cliffs plunging into the sea. Source:
