Historic Norfolk Island

Stock Photography By Tony Miller

Norfolk Island was discovered by Captain James Cook in 1774. A party of convicts and soldiers established a settlement in 1788 to produce food for Sydney. The British established a penitentiary in 1825 but the conditions were terrible.In 1852 Bishop Wilson recommended closure of the settlement and all had left by 1855. A year later the descendents of the Bounty mutineers were brought from Pitcairn Island to settle on Norfolk Island. The island is now a popular tourist destination.
