Featuring a great historical and cultural significance, Kingston is the second oldest town in Australia, now serving as the capital of the Australian South Pacific Territory of the Norfolk Island. Rising 20 meters above sea level within the foothills of the Kingston escarpment, most of the accessible beaches of Norfolk Island are located along the foreshores of this region. Slaughter Bay and the Emily Bay open into the Kingston lagoon and reefs on the south side, while the broad expanses of the Sydney Bay and the Cemetery Bay directly pour into the South Pacific Ocean.
An easy driving distance from Burnt Pine, Kingston convict ruins and upper-class houses of Quality Row are worth a walk through. Providing spectacular views, Kingston also offers services of Norfolk Island Golf Club in close proximity. Apart from swimming at Emily Bay and exploring the regional history of the settlement at Kingston, look out for the caravan at the beach which often appears selling hamburgers.
