About Lord Howe Island
Lord Howe Island is a World Heritage-listed paradise located 660km off the north coast of NSW and less than two hours' flight from Brisbane or Sydney.
At any one time, you'll be one of only 400 visitors on Lord Howe Island, regarded as one of the most beautiful islands in the Pacific. A holiday here is relaxing and unhurried, where getting around by bike or on foot is the way to go and there are plenty of adventures and activities to choose from.
World Heritage-listed for its outstanding natural beauty, remarkable geology and rare collection of birds, plants and marine life, Lord Howe is surrounded by the world's southernmost coral reef. The pristine waters teeming with marine life and rare coral form Lord Howe Island Marine Park, one of the largest in NSW. There's a whole host of water-based activities on the island, including scuba diving, fishing, snorkelling, surfing and kayaking.
On land, there's no better way to seek out Lord Howe's 64 unique species of flowering plants, the endangered woodhen and seabird colonies than on well marked walking tracks. If you're feeling especially adventurous, join a tour to climb to the summit of Mt Gower, one of the island's towering twin peaks. From the summit, you'll be captivated by the view - Mt Lidgbird in the foreground and The Lagoon below. On the descent, the jagged-spire of Balls Pyramid rises from the sea.
A wide range of accommodation styles, sumptuous spa treatments, beautiful hotels and great restaurants make Lord Howe Island the perfect getaway.
