postcards from historic norfolk

Whutta-waye? (how are you?)

We are back from a very short, but amazing trip to Norfolk Island and we are hoping to one day go back and take the children.
It is an amazing place, 
so tied up with our Australian heritage.
I could rabbit on for days about it, 
but I won't bore you, 
like someone showing thousands of slides from a trip, back in the day, 
I took nearly 400 photos in 3 1/2 days so it would be easy to do, 
I am going to try to be selective!

Here are 10 photos taken from the historic Kingston - Arthur Vale area.

 Entrance to the gaol.

 Kingston Pier 
this pier has been in use since convict times
 this is where they unload the cargo from the boats, 
depending on the weather, 
if it is too rough they have another pier that they try.

These boats are used to get the cargo off the ship.
They can fit a small car into one of these!

Quality Row

This house is set up as a period house museum.

I will be back with some beautiful scenery from Norfolk Island morla (tomorrow).


  1. Oh lovely!! Look forward to seeing more, glad you had a wonderful time:)

  2. I have always wanted to go there, it looks stunning! Definitely keen to see more photos!!! x

  3. It does look beautiful - love the look of the last house. What a fascinating trip it must have been.

  4. I cant imagine what it'd be like to live there?

  5. Isn't it the most fabulous place? I can't wait to get back there.

  6. It's such an amazing place. Can you still do duty-free shopping there? Kylie

  7. It sounds like a fascinating place. Would love to visit one day x

  8. Lovely photos! DH and I went there about 3 years ago and had a great time. DH played golf at the little course there...lots of wind and some tricky 'holes' he tells me
    :-)Did you see the trees near the graveyard that are growing horizontally because of the wind?

  9. It all looks wonderfully peaceful and inviting. Great photos Deanne.
