Norfolk Island

Norfolk is a small South Pacific Island roughly 2/3 of the way between Sydney and Auckland. It is a mostly self-governed community administrated by the Australian government. A large number of the residents are descendents of the HMS Bounty crew and there is a significant Polynesian influence to the culture.

Due to debts to the Australian government and dilapidated infrastructure, Norfolk Island was integrated into the Australian taxation and social security systems on 1st January 2016. This will be administered by the state of New South Wales on behalf of the federal government.
