Norfolk Island Act 1979
The Norfolk Island Act 1979 was an Act of the Parliament of Australia. It granted the Australian external territory of Norfolk Island limited self-government.  The Act formally established the Norfolk Island Legislative Assembly and gave the Assembly powers to pass, amend, and repeal laws, and – subject to the assent of the Administrator of Norfolk Island – executive powers. The Act was made under the powers granted to Parliament in section 122 of the Constitution of Australia.
The Norfolk Island Legislation Amendment Act 2015 passed the Australian Parliament on May 14, 2015 (Assented on 26 May, 2015) abolishing self-government on Norfolk Island and transferring Norfolk Island into a council as part of New South Wales law. From July 1, 2016 Norfolk Island legislation will be transferred to New South Wales and subject to NSW legislation.
