Norfolk Island services

The Australian Government remains committed to the continuity of essential services for Norfolk Island, and we understand the critical importance of sustainable health and education services for the Norfolk Island community.

We take this matter extremely seriously and remain committed to finding the best possible partner to deliver state-type services to your community.

During my visit to Norfolk Island, and in correspondence, I have received feedback about the desire of many to retain established connections wherever possible. I have also heard the desire for fit-for-purpose services, suited to the needs of your community. To this end I remain focused on finding the best possible partner for the delivery of your state-type services.  

Negotiations with potential partners to secure long-term service provision are ongoing, and more information will be provided when it is appropriate to do so.

The Government’s objective is to ensure the best outcome for Norfolk Island into the long‑term.
