Norfolk Island World Heritage Holiday Offer
Island's Amazing World Heritage Listing
Norfolk Island's historic Kingston and Arthur's Vale Heritage Area (KAVHA) has just joined UNESCO's World Heritage Listing, and to celebrate Australians are being offered a valued-packed stay in an historic 4.5 star, award winning homestead directly linked to Bounty mutineer Fletcher Christian.
Omniche Holiday's CEO Mat Christian Bailey is offering Christian's of Bucks Point, a beautifully restored, three-bedroom home overlooking Ball Bay, for seven night stays with hire car, airport meet and greet, three Baunti Escape island tours and all pre-payable taxes from $1515 per person quad share, bookable now for travel from September 1 to March 31 next year.
"KAVHA's inclusion on the World Heritage List will lift tiny Norfolk Island into a whole new league by giving it unprecedented importance in world heritage and tourism terms," said Mr Christian Bailey, a direct descendent of the Bounty mutiny leader.
"We are delighted with the decision and have put together a great holiday package for history lovers wanting to learn more about Norfolk Island's rich penal and maritime heritage."
Now an external territory of Australia, Norfolk Island was used as a penal settlement by the British Government for more than 60 years from 1788. Its fine convict-built Georgian buildings are still used today, as administrative centres, museums, private homes and the Norfolk Island Parliament.
Norfolk Air operates regular Boeing 737 flights from Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney and Melbourne while Air New Zealand flies a weekly A320 service from Auckland.
