Norfolk Island Quilters Getaway on beautiful Norfolk Island
Quilt Norfolk and Norfolk Island specialist Norfolk Island Travel Centre invite quilters to stunning Norfolk Island for a Quilters Getaway this October.
New Zealand instructor Jane Rixon joins Pam Furniss and Kerrie- Anne Riles from Australia, and Mary Christian-Bailey and Kay Greenbury from Norfolk Island.
The Quilters Getaway sees dedicated quilters and patchworkers from Australia and New Zealand master their craft in a series of classes teaching participants a range of design and fabric art skills.
Five renowned instructors give students their undivided attention for the full week on Norfolk Island. Teamed with the island’s picturesque setting, conditions are perfect to inspire students and instructors alike creating pieces to exhibit and new quilting themes and designs.
Quilt Norfolk and Norfolk Island Travel Centre are also delighted to confirm Michelle Hill will lead the 2016 Quilt Retreat on Norfolk Island April 2016. A quilting week like no other, participants will spend one on one quilting time and social time with Michelle on a beautiful South Pacific island gem. With retreat participation capped to 25 visitors, participants are guaranteed personal time with Michelle Hill for what will be a fabulous quilting holiday. The Norfolk landscapes and vistas are quilting inspiration in itself, there’s plenty of time for visitors to immerse themselves in the unrivalled beauty of Norfolk Island or simply enjoy a break away from it all.
Norfolk has a unique beauty of its own, with its renowned tall majestic pines, sheer cliff faces, coral reefs and beautiful beaches. Almost one third of the island is devoted to National Parks and Reserves.
But Norfolk Island is far more than a picturesque island in the South Pacific, it is paradise with a past. Elegant convict-built Georgian buildings are still in daily use and the Kingston and Arthur’s Vale Historic Area (KAVHA) is now World Heritage Listed as part of the Australian Convict Sites inscription. What was once a convicts settlement is now the tranquil home of the descendants from the famous Mutiny on the Bounty, who have their own unique culture and their own language.
There is much to see and do on Norfolk Island including: golf on an incredibly scenic course beside the sea, fishing, sea kayaking, edible gardens & eco tours, art galleries, bushwalking, glass bottom boat coral reef trips & Philip Island trekking, golf, bowls, tennis, squash, yoga, kayaking, swimming, snorkelling, and much more.
Take advantage of Norfolk’s bargain shopping or perhaps simply take some time out to relax and enjoy Norfolk’s peaceful existence.
