Location: Norfolk Island, Norfolk Island, New Zealand

Overview:
Short walk across a paddock to the north-east cliffs

Grade: Beginner

Access: Foot

Description:
This walk is on private property but walkers are welcome. Park near the gate on Stockyard Road and follow the rough 4WD track across the paddock beneath the trees towards the cliffs. There is a small toilet/long-drop (currently missing the door!) near the cliffs, along with a picnic table and some seats. The cliff-tops are positioned well for viewing the Noddies, Terns and Red-tailed Tropicbirds along the coastline. The area is fenced, but take care near the cliff edges.

Getting there:
Drive south out of Burnt pine on Collins Road, and then take Stockyard Road on the left. Don't turn right on to Two Chimneys Road, but continue on, and right again on Stockyard Road at the junction with Taries Lane. You can turn the car round at the end of Stockyard Road and park on the verge near the gate to Simons Water which is about 200 metres from the end of Stockyard Road.
