WHISPERING PINES COTTAGES NORFOLK ISLAND
Our Pacific's Resort Report


OUR Thoughts on Whispering Pines Cottages, Mount Pitt Road, Norfolk Island
Whispering Pines is around 1.5 kms from town and that’s a reasonable walk, but it could be a bit of a challenge on the way back up hill carrying supplies, so that’s why a rental car is provided with each cottage – guests only pay for daily insurance and need to leave the car with a full tank of petrol. A credit card imprint is required for the rental excess bond.

Mt Pitt Road carries on past Whispering Pines and winds upward another 1.5kms-or-so through the beautiful National park to the summit of Mt Pitt.  The views rom the top of Mt Pitt are stunning – you can virtually see all of Norfolk island and Philip Island from the lookout.  At Whispering Pines you are so close to the lookout at Mt Pitt, you can nick up there any time you choose – enjoy sunrise and sunset, but the best view is probably gained on a day when there is an aircraft departure. It’s quite an experience to be looking down at the airport from the mountain as the aircraft taxis out and takes off. 

What Whispering Pines say About Themselves:
“Nestled close to the edge of the Norfolk Island National Park, Whispering Pines Cottages sit around the ridge line overlooking the stunning slopes and valleys overed in iconic Norfolk Island pine. Just out of town, but quiet enough that you find yourself getting lost in the view of the stunning natural scenery with the ocean just off in the distance beyond. With 7 cottages in total, two groups of two and one group of 3, these cottages make the ideal setting for small families or groups of friends travelling together – offering close proximity but still allowing for personal space. All cottages are fully self-contained with modern and spacious kitchens with open plan living and dining rooms. There are 5 cottages with 2 bedrooms and 2 en-suite bathrooms, and 2 cottages with 2 bedrooms/1 bathroom. Sit on the front veranda, enjoy a BBQ and watch the sun go down over the mountain.
