Kingston and Arthur’s Vale Historic Area

The Kingston and Arthur’s Vale Historic Area (KAVHA) on Norfolk Island is one of the foremost national examples of a cultural landscape with exceptional heritage and social values and is listed on the National Heritage List.

Today visitors to KAVHA can take a guided tour, follow walking trails or visit the open house at No. 10 Quality Row.

KAVHA contains one of the finest collections of colonial Georgian buildings in Australia and has international significance as an architectural record of convict settlement from 1788 to 1855.

Although many of the original buildings have been lost through demolition, neglect or natural disasters, the remaining buildings and ruins have been stabilised by a program of restoration and conservation which begun in the early 1970s.

Norfolk Island is located 1600km north-east of Sydney and an external territory of Australia.

Norfolk is home to the descendants of the Bounty mutineers and boasts its own language, a colourful convict history, dramatic coastal scenery, pristine beaches, coral lagoons, great restaurants and cafes, one of the world’s most scenic golf courses.

With such fun activities such as snorkelling, kayaking, mountain biking and scuba diving along with trekking and horse riding complemented by heritage and nature tours, fine dining and cliff top seafood feasts at sunset.

Interpretive history tours are available at the Kingtson Arthur’s Vale Historic Area (KAVHA) on Norfolk Island. KAVHA is of outstanding historic significance as a convict settlement spanning the era of transportation to eastern Australia between 1788-1855.

Tours available of Colonial Cemetery, The Landing Place,  Gaols & Industries, Polynesians, Beaches & Bridges, Historic Arthur’s Vale, First Settlement Heritage Tour 1788 – 1814 and No. 10 Quality Row Open House.

Although, as a place of secondary punishment it developed a reputation as one of the harshest and cruellest of Australia’s penal settlements, it was also a place where humanising experiments in penal reform were conducted. It is also significant as the only site in Australia to display evidence of early Polynesian settlement, and the place where the Pitcairn Island descendents of the Bounty mutineers were re-settled in 1856.

Norfolk Island has more than 65 activities available, from World Heritage nominated history to world class fishing, diving and cultural activities related to the island’s descendants of the Bounty Mutineers and their Tahitian wives.

Plastic bag free holiday: Help protect Norfolk Island Marine Life

Norfolk Island coastlineAs part of the protecting Norfolk Island Marine Life, the Norfolk Island History Lovers holidays are plastic bag free.

Enjoy and experience the unique and varied tale that is Norfolk Island history.

Norfolk has a unique beauty of its own, with its renowned tall majestic pines, sheer cliff faces, coral reefs and beautiful beaches. Almost one third of the island is devoted to National Parks and Reserves.

But Norfolk Island is far more than a picturesque island in the South Pacific, it is paradise with a past.

What was once a convicts’ nightmare is now the tranquil home of the descendants from the Mutiny on the Bounty, who have their own unique culture and their own language.
