Many First Fleet descendants have ancestors who lived and received land grants on Norfolk Island before the island was abandoned. Later inhabited by a second convict settlement and more recently the descendants of the Bounty mutineers and their Tahitian wives, this island is awash with history.

In recognition of the significance of Norfolk Island as the first settlement after Sydney and the critical role it played in supporting the fledgling community, - a week of special events will be held on the island.
