Norfolk Island (, locally ; Norfuk: Norf'k Ailen) is an external territory of Australia located in the Pacific Ocean between New Zealand and New Caledonia, 1,412 kilometres (877 mi) directly east of Australia's Evans Head and about 900 kilometres (560 mi) from Lord Howe Island. Together with the neighbouring Phillip Island and Nepean Island, the three islands collectively form the Territory of Norfolk Island. At the 2021 census, it had 2188 inhabitants living on a total area of about 35 km2 (14 sq mi). Its capital is Kingston.

The first known settlers in Norfolk Island were East Polynesians but they had already departed when Great Britain settled it as part of its 1788 settlement of Australia. The island served as a convict penal settlement from 6 March 1788 until 5 May 1855, except for an 11-year hiatus between 15 February 1814 and 6 June 1825, when it lay abandoned. On 8 June 1856, permanent civilian residence on the island began when descendants of the Bounty mutineers were relocated from Pitcairn Island. In 1914 the UK handed Norfolk Island over to Australia to administer as an external territory.

Native to the island, the evergreen Norfolk Island pine is a symbol of the island and is pictured on its flag. The pine is a key export for Norfolk Island, being a popular ornamental tree in Australia (where two related species grow), and also worldwide.

The Importance of Knowing the Time in Norfolk Island

Make sure to look the time to make sure it is best. Not all clocks tell the time correctly. Depending on the location of your computer, your time could be off for as much as 5 minutes or more. Looking for more information on this location? Look below for tips such as population and more.

How to tell the time

You can use a old world analog clock, your computer, or even a sundial to tell the time.

Clocks work by logging track of the number of rotations of a particular wheel or spring. As the wheel or spring spins, it moves a gear that is connected to the hands of the clock. The speed at which the wheel or spring turns is controlled by a pendulum or weight, which swings back and forth as the clock ticks.

How to read a clock

Assuming you already know how to tell the time on a old school clock face, reading a digital clock is easy and straightforward. All you need to do is identify the numbers on the clock face and read them as if they were on a traditional clock face.

For example, if the digital clock reads "12:15," then it is 12:15pm.

Digital vs. Analog clocks

Digital clocks display the time as a number, typically in hours, minutes, and seconds. Analog clocks display the time using hands on a clock face.

There are pros and cons to each type of clock. Digital clocks are easy to read at a glance and can be very accurate. However, they can also be more difficult to set and may require batteries. Analog clocks are often more aesthetically pleasing and can be operated without batteries. However, they can be more difficult to read at a glance and may not be as accurate as digital clocks.

How to tell time without a watch

In order to tell time without a clock, you can use a alot of methods that only use the sun and shadows. One way is to find a stick and put it in the ground so that the shadow is cast on the ground. The length of the shadow will tell you what time it is. Another method is to use your hand to estimate how long the shadow is. You can do this by holding your hand up to the sun and making a fist. The area between your thumb and first finger will be about 15 minutes on a sundial. You can also use your watch or phone to find out what time it is by using an online world clock like this one.
