Rock around The Rock

Put your glad rags on! If you’re into Rock & Roll, The Rock is the place to be in mid-February.

No, The Rock’s not a new downtown dance venue.

It’s Norfolk Island; a place of pine trees, spectacular sub-tropical scenery, luscious fresh foods and rock & roll mania during February.

The Norfolk Island Rock Around The Rock festival runs from February 11 to 18.

Don’t visit heartbreak hotel; get onto a package tour featuring four nights of dancing coupled with four demonstration workshops and unique Norfolk Island hospitality.

Plus, you can also find your thrill with a week of local rock ‘n’ roll activities at clubs and hotels on the island including lunches and evening dances.

Performers featured include leading Australian rockers such as Lucky Star, Dance On, Franky & Johnny and locals The Norfolk Island Rockers.

About Norfolk Island: Discovered by Captain Cook in 1774, Norfolk Island was first settled as a British penal colony in 1788 through to 1856. On June 8, 1856, the island was re-inhabited by a community from Pitcairn Island, descendants of the Bounty mutineers and their Tahitian companions. Known today as Norfolk Islanders, they form a majority of the 1,800 resident population. Norfolk Island is renowned for its spectacular coastal scenery, colourful history, sporting and cultural activities, convict heritage and tax-free shopping.
