Expressions of Interest for the Kingston and Arthur's Vale Historic Area Advisory Committee

Expressions of interest (EOI) are sought from people in the Norfolk Island community who would like to become a member of the Kingston and Arthur’s Vale Historic Area (KAVHA) Advisory Committee.

The KAVHA Advisory Committee provides expert and community input to the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development (the Department) to guide the management of KAVHA. This EOI process is for an additional community member position.

It gives me great pleasure to announce that current Advisory Committee members Mr David ‘Dids’ Evans, Mr Duncan Evans, Ms Kristal Buckley AM and Mr Kevin Sumption PSM have been reappointed to the Advisory Committee for a further two years, to 30 November 2021.

These individuals have made an incredibly valuable contribution to the management and future direction of KAVHA. They are passionate about conserving its heritage and community values, and are dedicated to seeing the site realise its potential for tourism and economic development.  

Recognising the need to introduce new skills and ideas, and succession plan for the future, the Department is seeking to add one additional community and one additional expert member to the Advisory Committee for the upcoming term.

People with a wide range of interests and backgrounds are encouraged to apply to join the Advisory Committee and represent the views of the community. This includes people with cultural and heritage interests and expertise, people living, working or operating businesses at the site, people with expertise relating to the natural environment, land use management and planning and recreational users of the site.

People with a high degree of skills and experience in the areas of heritage conservation, archaeology, collection management, land use management and planning, tourism, marketing and related business development are also being sought through a separate EOI process for a new expert member.

The Advisory Committee typically meets twice a year on Norfolk Island and is chaired by the Administrator. Members will be paid daily sitting fees for official committee meeting days.

Interested community members are encouraged to submit an EOI, addressing the assessment criteria, and including the names and contact details of two referees.

The KAVHA Advisory Committee Information Pack available at contains additional information about the assessment criteria, assessment process and the Advisory Committee’s operation.

Please email completed EOI to by 4.30pm on Monday 17 February 2020.
