Norfolk Island Paddock to Plate Agribusiness Incubator Discovery Session Postponed Until Further Notice

The Norfolk Island Paddock to Plate Agribusiness Incubator Discovery Session organised by Regional Development Australia Norfolk Island has been postponed until further notice.

Due to the travel restrictions caused by Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), we are now looking into different ways that we can deliver this program in 2020. Once we have a clearer picture of what this might look like, we will reschedule the session and consult with the community to ensure that the new model fits with its needs.

We would like to offer our support to everyone affected by the current travel restrictions and encourage you to get in touch with us if we can assist with funding applications or Government outreach. With tourism being the island’s major industry, we know that this will be a tough time for local businesses, and we will do everything we can to help support you through it. Please do not hesitate to contact Kerry Grace at for assistance. 

If you would like to share any ideas for the future of the Norfolk Island Paddock to Plate Agribusiness Incubator, please send them to Elise McCaskie at or ph: 53447.

If you are involved in the local agriculture industry, there is a webinar that you may be interested in happening on Thursday night, details are as follows:
