Kingston and Arthur’s Vale Historic Area

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.
