Australia’s Remote Islands

This three-part series presented by ABC reporter Tracy Bowden explores three unique Australian islands from the Sub Antarctic to the Sub Tropics and to the South Pacific.


Australia's Remote Islands - Ep 3 - Norfolk Island

In the South Pacific Ocean, Norfolk Island has a fascinating - and brutal - history of convicts and mutineers. Many of its people are direct descendants of Fletcher Christian and his bounty mutineers. With its colourful history and quirky style of government, the island has relied heavily on tourism for income. But the GFC took a heavy toll. The fiercely independent islanders are now being forced to turn to the mainland for help.
