Lord Howe Island

Lord Howe Island is Just Paradise. Immerse yourself in the spectacular surroundings and experience some of the world’s best day hikes, snorkelling on the coral reef, hand-feeding fish on Ned’s Beach and much more. This multi award winning, World Heritage-listed paradise is less than a 2 hour flight from Sydney or Brisbane.

Its climate can be best described as one of perpetual spring with an exceptional range of natural phenomena, rich terrestrial and marine diversity, and an ecosystem developed from submarine volcanic activity.

The island has been described as the most beautiful in the Pacific, with a landscape of plunging cliffs and imposing mountains, sub tropical rainforests, beaches, a lagoon, and the world’s southernmost coral reef containing over five hundred species of fish.

With a permanent population of 350 and a speed limit of 25kph the Island is too remote to receive mobile phone coverage.

At the tiny local village there is a post office, a couple of shops and a cafe where you may enjoy great coffee,  whilst further afield there is a nine hole golf course and a bowling green.
