Due to the rugged coastline, ships arriving at Norfolk Island are required to anchor approximately 1 km from shore at either Kingston or Cascade Bay depending on weather conditions.
Goods are discharged using the ship’s derricks into small lighters. These are towed between the ship and the shore by motorised launches. These lighters are 8m in length and are modelled on the old American whaling boats. A mobile crane on the jetty lifts the cargo from the lighters onto the pier.
As the video and our Photo Gallery shows, it is not possible to use containers on this service so all cargo is unitised and either palletised or crated for shipping. It is essential that all goods are properly packed for shipping.
Everything was done properly – I was most impressed with the very friendly and most efficient service provided by Norfolk Forwarding Services ….. certainly, I got value for money !
