Discovery Day


Every year on 17 February, Islanders and guests celebrate Discovery Day. There is an evening sports carnival on the Cricket Ground with palm tree climbing, a slow bicycle race, tug-of-war and a relay or two. There are also races for different age groups including pre-schoolers, "old buffers" and "old beauties". We have found that people really do run faster after a glass or two of wine. It's serious competition and grown adults running in the three-legged race hit the ground hard when they trip. 'Ring-ins' are welcome and we'll do special deals for top athletes! "Pinetrees Hoo Ha Ha!"

 If you're planning a trip in February, make sure you overlap with Discovery Day. You'll see nothing else quite like it, and you'll laugh - a lot.
