Now, we rely on cargo ships to bring all sorts of Supplies to the Island, from grocery items to horses and cattle and the cars and buses that drive the tourists and ourselves all around the 170km of roads on this 5x8km island.
Giftware like coasters,mugs, placemats and stubbie coolers with photos of The Norfolk Guardian and buses and Trucks coming in on the Lighters can be purchased from Image gallery on Norfolk Island

The Guardian will then sail on to New Zealand and then fully loaded back to us.
Our Local supermarket here on Norfolk Island, Foodland, stocks both Australian and New Zealand grocery items, though we have strict quarrantine laws and dont import fruit and vegetables except onion, potatoes, ginger and garlic. All local produce is grown fresh here on the Island, although seasonal, you can't get any fresher than our own backyards.
When we woke up this morning (26/3) We had a lovely treat as P & O's Pacific Sun had arrived just outside Norfolk Island at Cascade.
