Cycling @ Mokutu

A-Frame Chalets @ Mokutu is a great place to explore from during your holiday on Norfolk Island, at your own pace, on a bicycle.

Located just 4 km from Burnt Pine township and 2.5 km from Kingston’s historic district, Mokutu makes a convenient base to explore, and offers commanding views of the sea and sunset!

The island is very hilly in some parts so I suggest a reasonable level of fitness for cycling round the island.

As a recent guest I cycled to Kingston and toward the Anson Bay area as well as other parts of the island.

A bicycle is perfect for a day trip as nothing on the island is more than a few kilometres from each other.

Some of the roads are heavily potholed, particularly those on the southwestern section of the island. The roads in and around Burnt Pine and Kingston are in much better shape.

The only real danger on the road aside from potholes is cattle, which have the right of way.

In all I cycled nearly 100 km in a week on the island.

Bicycles are for hire from Hayden Bell at the Automotive Service Centre.  He’s a cycling enthusiast who will make sure he sets up a bicycle suited for you.
