Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Walking from Slaughter Bay into Emily Bay to do some snorkeling this convict era ruin, especially its chimney caught my eye. It made an excellent backdrop and place to film through to make some videos. Also has great signage that tells you all about its purpose in preserving food by extracting salt from sea water and storing it.

On our wander through Kingston we stumbled across the Salt House on our arrival at Emily Bay. An interesting read of it's purpose and just an idyllic location. Worth a visit.

Visit the Salthouse and take photos of the surroundings. The Salthouse is just a ruin nowadays and will remain that way. World Heritage Listing means the building relics cannot be improved, only maintained. The convicts who worked in the Salthouse would have had a very hard life.

The Salt House is strategically located on a pretty point overlooking Emily Bay. There are views, benches, tables and shade ... what more could you ask for? It's also close to the best snorkelling area of Emily Bay. The site is named for the adjacent ruins of the convict-era Salt house. No roof but otherwise quite well preserved and a very good information board on how the salt was manufactured and stored here.

Stunning location on a small peninsula between Emily and Slaughter Bay. Easy to access and view some of the early Norfolk Island history.

If visiting Emily Bay, don't forget to take in this piece of historical ruin. You can walk to easily from the beach or park nearby. Good story panel.

This is so typical of the paradoxical nature of the island.
Her is one of the most stunning bays I've evr seen and swam in and here is the old convict Salthouse overlooking all the frivolities happening on the beach.
The history placard next to the building tells all the story when you read through it.
