Following the success of our inaugural 2016 Norfolk Island Conference, we are going to do it again in January 2018.

Organised in association with Norfolk Island Central School, the Conference offers a unique chance to visit this special place, with a program that combines keynote presentations and workshops with a range of exciting site studies. Depending on the travel package selected, delegates and their partners will also have free time to explore the island themselves.

In the recently released NSW Modern History syllabus there are a number of specific opportunities to focus on Norfolk Island history.
