Kingston and Arthur's Vale No 9 Quality Row - Kingston Research and Interpretation Centre Adaptive Reuse Project: significance of site

The Kingston and Arthur's Vale Historic Area (KAVHA) is of outstanding significance to the nation as a convict settlement spanning the era of transportation to eastern Australia, between 1788-1855. It is also the only site in Australia to display evidence of early Polynesian settlement, and the place where the Pitcairn Island descendents of the Bounty mutineers were re-settled in 1856.

Number 9 Quality Row Kingston contributes to the significance of KAVHA as one of the principle historic elements in a group of Royal Engineer-designed penal military officer's residences.
