Travel diaries :: Long Weekend Away: Things to See, Taste and Do on Norfolk Island

As we landed on Norfolk Island on board an Air New Zealand flight from Sydney, I saw the vastness of emerald green pastures, rugged earth, bottle green pines and surrounding turquoise bays meeting the metallic deep seas of the South Pacific Ocean and oh, a local cow, briefly looked up at the plane and then resumed grazing grass as if to say, “Just another plane landing.” I read in a brochure on the plane that the “cows have the right of way on the roads”. I knew what I would be experiencing on Norfolk Island would be something of beauty and intrigue.

Bistro Remy takes you to France without leaving Sydney :: The Langham, Sydney

It is pleasing to see Sydney’s finest hotels reinventing their restaurants and making them more accessible to local residents and neighbouring office workers in terms of quality dishes using fine quality Australian produce but without the luxury prices. I was invited to a lunch last Wednesday for the opening of the new Bistro Remy of The Langham Sydney, one of Sydney’s finest and grandest harbourside hotels in the heart of The Rocks district in Sydney and I’m blessed to have a heroic appetite on occasions like this.
