Misery, Mutiny and Majesty: The Kingston Heritage Walk


This walking tour of World Heritage nominated Kingston, is a unique opportunity to enter the historic buildings of Kingston and explore Polynesian, convict and Pitcairn heritage. See how convicts endured the misery of exile in the New Gaol, contrasted against the houses for the military officers in Quality Row, the best collection of Georgian architecture in Australasia. Here at the far end of the earth, British and Polynesian history is brought to life through the stories and buildings. Surrounded by majestic Norfolk Pines, Kingston is a living area where Norfolk Islanders, the descendants of the Mutiny on the Bounty, still live, work and play.
