Wonderful views

On a clear day you can see most of the island from this vantage point and gives a good perspective of the size. Fairly narrow but well maintained road gives access to this point.

Great views of a magnificent little island standing alone in the Pacific. Very impressed with the trail out to the summit, easy to walk and well maintained. Just another gem in paradise. The forest with the local bird species flitting about is a sight not to be missed. Very peaceful.

A short drive up the mountain for the best view of the whole island. Parking available, a well kept lawn area with picnic tables from which to take pics, watch the planes arrive and depart or just relax and enjoy the view.

Great views of the island from up here. If you time it right you can watch the plane land or take off.

Mount Pitt is not a mountain by the usual standards, but is the highest point on Norfolk Island with excellent views. A perfect place for great scenes of the local areas and some excellent photo opportunities.

A great vantage spot that offers 360 degree views of the whole island. A steep-ish climb on the best road on the island. Really only a few km from the heart of town. Well worth a visit, esp if you have a hire car

Don't leave the island without a visit to this spot. The view is amazing - we even saw whales. Quite a few bushwalks if you're keen.

Took the Mt Pitt road as it wound its way up the hill and was pleasantly surprised by the clear view of the whole island. Just great to see the hills and valleys that make up the island. Lush growth all around , rugged coastline, airfield. Great bird's eye view.

As the road goes in it gets rather narrow, windy, and up hill. When you reach the reach you will agree it is all worth it. Marvellous views over most of the island and the sea
