Lord Howe Island
Lord Howe Island is a World Heritage-listed paradise with year-round scheduled services offered by QantasLink, including regular flights direct from Sydney and weekend flights from Brisbane. A holiday here is relaxing and unhurried, where getting around by bike or on foot fits the idyllic pace.
Lord Howe Island's famous twin peaks, breathtaking views and natural forest make it ideal for walkers and hikers to discover the island on foot. Challenge yourself on a one-day, guided climb of Mount Gower, at 875m, considered one of the world's best hikes, or take a more leisurely walk under lush forest canopies in the Valley of Shadows.
Cast off at Blinky Beach for Australian salmon or snorkel straight off the sand at Ned's Beach where you can also hand-feed fish. Enjoy a wide range of other watersports including surfing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, kite surfing and windsurfing.
Lord Howe is also one of Australia’s premier birdwatching destinations. There's also no better way to seek out Lord Howe's 211 species of birds that have been recorded visiting here, of those 32 species breed on the island.
A wide range of accommodation styles, sumptuous spa treatments, beautiful hotels and great restaurants make Lord Howe Island the perfect getaway.
