Norfolk Island is a small island located in the South Pacific Ocean, approximately 1,412 km off the east coast of Australia. It is a self-governing external territory of Australia and is about 8 km long and 5 km wide, with an area of 34.6 km². The island is located between Australia, New Zealand, and New Caledonia.

Norfolk Island is known for its beautiful scenery, including beaches, cliffs, and forests. It is also home to a variety of wildlife, including seabirds and sea turtles.

The first Europeans to arrive on Norfolk Island were the British, who settled there in 1788. The island was used as a penal settlement until 1855. During this time, the island was used to house prisoners from the British penal colonies in Australia.

In 1856, the island was handed over to the descendants of the Bounty mutineers and their Tahitian companions. These people, known as Pitcairners, were allowed to govern their own affairs. The Pitcairners were largely self-sufficient and their economy was based mainly on fishing, farming, and timber.

In 1914, the island was annexed by Australia and it became an Australian external territory in 1917. In 1979, the island was granted self-government, and in 1985 it was granted its own constitution.

Today, Norfolk Island is a popular tourist destination and is known for its beautiful scenery and its unique culture. It is home to a variety of attractions, including the Norfolk Island National Park and the Norfolk Island Botanic Garden. The island is also home to a number of historical sites, including the Kingston and Arthur's Vale Historic Area, which is a World Heritage Site.

In recent years, Norfolk Island has become an important part of the Australian economy, with the island's tourism industry providing employment for many of its residents. The island is also a popular destination for retirees, with its relaxed lifestyle and warm climate.
