RAHS PROPOSED HOLIDAY WITH HISTORY NORFOLK ISLAND TOUR
Norfolk has a unique beauty all its own with its renowned majestic pines, sheer cliff faces, coral reefs and beautiful beaches. Almost one third of the island is devoted to National Parks and Reserves.
But Norfolk is much more than a picturesque island in the South Pacific, it is full of history, a paradise with a past. Elegant convict built Georgian buildings are still in daily use and the Kingston and Arthur’s Vale Historic Area (KAVHA) is now World Heritage Listed as part of the Australian Convict Sites inscription. What was once a convict settlement is now the tranquil home of the descendants from the famous Mutiny on the Bounty who have their own unique culture and language.
RAHS is considering a package holiday with history for any members who wish to take part. It will be a fully escorted tour led by Tour Operator and RAHS Councillor Judith Dunn
It is envisaged the package, from September 26 to October 3, 2014, will include seat and bag airfare, accommodation, taxes, airport transfer to and from accommodation, hire car (insurance extra) and organised tours. Please register your interest with Judith Dunn. 21 passengers are required to make this a viable tour and the tour maximum numbers are 24.
Accommodation is at a resort with 2 x 1 bedroom twin or double units each with its own bathroom. These twin/double units have an adjoining studio unit with kitchen, dining and lounge area. The cost of the tour is $1350 per head
