Ms Brodtmann said she was looking forward to the visit, thanking the outgoing Administrator Owen Walsh, and speaking to locals about issues of concern.

“This visit will be a great chance for members of the Norfolk Island community to tell me what sort of future they see for the island, and what I can do to help improve infrastructure and assist with the island’s economic reform,” said Ms Brodtmann.

“I am really looking forward to this visit, and I urge anyone who is keen to have a chat to contact my office and arrange a time.”

Ms Brodtmann has a number of other activities planned during her trip including meeting Members of the Legislative Assembly, presenting School Legend Awards at Norfolk Island Central School, visiting the hospital and touring the national park.
