Historical Convict Prison Site

Norfolk Island / The Pacific

The Historical Convict Prison Site is also known as the Kingston and Arthur’s Vale Historic Area. This site served as an out-posted penal station of New South Wales.  However, it also was the prison for re-offending convicts. The prison had a few female convicts, but the overwhelming majority of them were male. This site is made up of 40 buildings, built-in limestone by the convicts.  Today they are all substantial ruins and archaeological remains.  They are surrounded by 225 hectares of undisturbed land.
