History and Culture



Visitors to Norfolk Island soon realise that the island buzzes with a living breathing culture and history. Before 1788 there is evidence of a Polynesian Settlement, the First Colonial Settlement (1788 - 1814) Second Penal Settlement (1825 - 1855) Third Pitcairn Settlement 1856 to the present day.
Kingston and Arthur's Vale Historic Area is one of 11 historic sites that form the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage Property.
