Travel Guide Oceania Melanesia Norfolk Island Kingston



Kingston is the capital and largest settlement on Norfolk Island, an Australian South Pacific Territory. It is just a small village where all the formal administrative buildings, government buildings and Government House are located. Nowadays, the main commercial centre is Burnt Pine, but the cultural and historical centre remains in Kingston. It is built on the only flat, sea-level land available on Norfolk and several people living here have been relocated from the Pitcairn Islands, thus being descendants of the Bounty mutineers.




Kingston's climate is subtropical with an average rainfall of 1328 mm per year. Summer days range from 24 °C - 28 °C, with nights around 19 °C - 21 °C. In winter temperatures drop to around 19 °C during the day and 12 °C at night.
