According to legend, Norfolk Island is the most haunted place in the Pacific. A stroll between these gravestones reveals the history of what was once Britain’s worst convict colony. So bad was it, convicts sought execution as relief from suffering.

One prisoner, Thomas Salsbury Wright, was found guilty of forgery and sent off to Norfolk 99 years old. He lived in horrid conditions and died 6 years later. If I close my eyes, it’s as if I can hear screams, resigned sighs – amidst the sound of waves brushing the sand.

Written by  Anne-Sophie Redisch.
