You got to get there first ... Norfold Island is
a good place to visit during World War 111. Totally isolated in the northern Tasman Sea, Pacific Ocean between Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia is used to be a penal colony and
home to pirates from the Mutiny on the Bounty.
1500 miles from the nearest land.
You can island fever very quickly.
