Lord Howe Island Events

Lord Howe Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its stunning natural beauty and biodiversity, and some of the fauna and flora found there is unique to the island. With banyan and palm forests, spectacularly clear waters thriving with marine life, and picturesque walks and lookouts, it's one of NSW’s best kept secrets, and at only 2 hours flight from Sydney and Brisbane, it's the ideal destination for a weekend getaway.

Throughout the year, the Lord Howe Island plays host to a range of activities and events. Whether you’re looking for an adventure on land or sea, are keen to indulge in fine food and wine, or want to get up close with the island’s bird or marine life, there are plenty of fun events to pique your curiosity.

Staying on the island is truly a treat. Lord Howe Island accommodation spans from self-contained apartments for the budget-conscious, to sprawling resorts with ocean views, so you’re sure to find something to suit your needs.
