World Heritage listed Lord Howe Island is just 11km long and 2.8km at it’s widest. The island is part of New South Wales and lies approximately 600km north-east of Sydney and south-east of Brisbane and at the same latitude as Port Macquarie. The climate is sub-tropical with maximum temperatures rarely exceeding 26°C in summer and rarely falling beneath 14°C in winter. Exhilarating for those who wish to enjoy the plethora of activities and adventure available or equally rewarding for those wanting rest and relaxation. Perfect for all ages.

Walking and cycling are the main modes of transport. Well sign posted walking tracks criss-cross the island ranging from easy strolls to breathtaking cliff top guided treks. With only 400 visitors at any one time, the pace is always relaxed.

Lord Howe’s crystal clear lagoon, bordered by the world’s most southern coral reef, is home to over 500 species of fish and 90 species of coral. The island’s forest has 240 native plant species, half of which are found nowhere else in the world, and while 32 species of birds breed on the island, 203 different species have been recorded visiting.
