Lose yourself for a day by wandering the ruins cemetery and museums at this historic site.If possible go with a local tour but hire cars are plentiful and not dear at all
This is a great place to walk around as the views in all directions are spectacular. It is also full of history with the museums found inside the well maintained buildings from the 1800s. It has the best of both worlds for a tourist .
Lots of old ruins to visit and walk around, all for free and most are wheelchair accessible. Heaps of parking and of course toilets never too far away. You can spend hours checking out the area and reading the information boards dotted around.
We spent a few days exploring the Kingston township of old convict ruins and enjoyed it immensely. The cemetery was well worth the guided tour, as was the museums pass to all the historical buildings as they are spread about the township area. A must do is a swim in Emily Bay just beautiful. Our full stay was week and... 更多

A well preserved area of the remains of the early settlements on Norfolk Island. There are plenty of signs out informing what the buildings are. The grass is cut and obstruction free giving easy access. The area is very photographic if anything but there is not much left of what it originally was.
Make sure you get the museum pass as you can use it for you whole stay, that way you can do the tag along tours and then pop back in at your own pace. If you are into history then you will enjoy it all. The whole area is just so pretty its hard to believe that so much cruelty... 更多
Well preserved houses and building all around the area as well a the remains of the Convict era. There were restorations underway at the 'church' and we were not sure if we could go in. Other buildings seemed to be either occupied or derelict. It would have been nice to look inside some of them.
Read up on the area first and then go visit. Get a Museum pass and check them out and read the signage. The KARVA Information Centre is also worth a visit.
