Lord Howe Island provides a bounty of activities for the outdoor enthusiast. Recreational activities include hiking up Mt Gower and viewing Balls Pyramid in the sea, bushwalking, scuba diving, snorkelling, reef walks and surfing as well as feeding fish by hand and bird watching. Explore Lord Howe Island Marine Park to see rare coral forms and marine life in the clear waters. The island is also home to unique species of flowering flora.
You can do a lot here or a little. Spend your holiday at a more relaxed pace and see the sights on foot or by bicycle. To enjoy your Pacific paradise stay, accommodation options range from self-contained apartments to luxury retreats offering pampering spa treatments and fine dining options. This idyllic island is also less than two hours' flight from Sydney or Brisbane making it the ideal tropical getaway.
The island's compact size and small local population means tourist numbers are capped at 400 each year so it's worth arranging a Lord Howe Island holiday package to make the most of your stay.
