Kingston

Kingston is the township founded on Norfolk by the First Settlers. It was subsequently the main township during the Second and early Third Settlements. Today the main commercial centre is Burnt Pine, with Kingston being the main administrative and historical centre of the island. It is built on the only flat, sea-level land available on Norfolk.
