Australia’s Norfolk Island, located 1471km east of Brisbane in the Pacific Ocean, is the result of a volcano that existed some 2-3 million years ago. Its human history features inhabitants including Polynesians, First Fleeters, convicts and mutineers. Today, it is also perhaps Australia’s most remote community. We sent Australian yachtswoman Jessica Watson to discover Norfolk Island’s homegrown treasures. Read her full feature in AG#136, out now.
