1856 – The Untold Story

On 8 June 1856 a total of 194 people, descendants from the Bounty, arrived on Norfolk Island from Pitcairn Island aboard the Morayshire. The descendants arrived in cold, wet blustery conditions. Few had ever been to sea before, they were seasick, homesick and heartsick. The journey of 6,000 km / 3,700 miles took five weeks.

They arrived to a recently abandoned penal settlement set aside for the ‘worst of the worst’. It was full of ghosts and memories. 1856 – The untold story follows their journey in the World Heritage Kingston area, recounting stories of the families, where they lived and how they adapted to their new life on Norfolk Island on this evocative tour.
