Lord Howe Island

Paradise found

Visit Lord Howe Island


Lord Howe Island is a World Heritage-listed paradise located on the world's southernmost coral reef, less than two hours' flight from Sydney or Brisbane. Snorkel and dive in crystal clear temperate waters teeming with fish, colourful coral and green turtles or trek to the top of Mount Gower and bushwalk through native forests and over white sand beaches.

This tranquil, sub-tropical, volcanic island is widely considered to be the most stunning in the Pacific. You'll enjoy plenty of solitude, with no more than 400 visitors allowed here at any one time, a measure that helps to protect the fabulous natural charms. Lord Howe's far-flung setting has enabled unique flora and fauna to thrive, including 241 native plants and several species of flightless bird, one of which is the woodhen.

Rainforest-clad Mount Gower defines one end of the island, from which extends a narrow centre fringed by a lagoon and reefs where both tropical and temperate fish flourish. Snorkelling provides the chance to see yellow moon and double-header wrasses, while abundant yellowfin tuna, marlin and wahoo make this a superb destination for game fishing.

At the other end of Lord Howe is a tiny group of islets where a profusion of nesting seabirds can be spotted, such as the rare providence petrel, the sooty tern and masked booby. All in all, it's an absolute gem for nature lovers - and island lovers too.
