Holiday in paradise on Lord Howe Island
This magical island in the Tasman Sea is less than two hours’ flight from Sydney. It is one of just four island groups in the world possessing World Heritage status because of its rare and unique flora and astonishing variety of marine and birdlife.
Surrounded by the world’s southernmost coral reef, Lord Howe is home to 130 permanent and migratory bird species while more than 500 species of fish and 90 species of coral thrive in its crystal-clear waters.
You’ll be able to relax and unwind on Lord Howe with swimming, snorkelling, diving, walking and admiring nature – it is Australia’s best location for bird watching.
Walks on the island are a major drawcard with a highlight being the day climb to the top of Mt Gower, one of the majestic twin peaks on the island. For true bliss, book a massage and spa treatment after your day’s walk.
