Event Details

NorfolkIslandTravelCentre FirstFleetAnniversaryCelebrations 4

The 6 March 1788 arrival on Norfolk Island of Commandant Philip Gidley King and a small group of convicts and free settlers saw the beginnings of the First British Settlement on Norfolk Island.

Centred around an evocative re-enactment of their landing on that day, this week offers the chance to discover some of Norfolk's fascinating but relatively un-known history, during a week designed to provide a snap-shot of convict life. Watch the First Fleeters land on our shores during the re-enactment, followed by a luncheon. Also see the island on an Island Life Tour, experience the iconic Fish Fry and discover the island's history. Don't miss out - this time of year is a stunning time to visit Norfolk Island!

I can strongly recommend doing the same tour arrangement to anyone with an interest in First Fleeters and others on Norfolk Island during the first and second settlements. There is nothing like seeing the locations in person.
