Norfolk Island Cemetery, Kingston

5.0
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Norfolk Island
Relive the history of the island's convict era by taking a walk around Norfolk Island Cemetery, established in the 1820s and featuring many tombstones brought from other burial sites. The headstones and inscriptions dating back as early as 1792 provide an account of the often violent deaths of the settlers-convicts, many of which were executed. The cemetery is the final resting place of many Pitcairn islanders (descendants of the Bounty mutineers) and the acclaimed Australian writer Colleen McCullough of "The Thorn Birds" fame.
