Lord Howe Island is widely regarded as the most beautiful island in the Pacific.

Lord Howe Island is a World Heritage-listed island located around 600km off the north coast of NSW and less than two hours’ flight from Brisbane or Sydney. Along the island’s 10km west coast lies the stunning sandy semi-enclosed sheltered coral reef lagoon.

Most of the population lives in the north part of the island, while the south is dominated by forested hills rising to Mount Gower (875m) which is the highest point on the island. The island’s geological origins date back over 7 million years to the highly eroded remains of a sheild volcano, the product of eruptions that lasted for about a half-million years.

Today, only 400 visitors are permitted on Lord Howe at any one time, ensuring the island remains unpspoilt. The island’s outstanding natural beauty includes a rare collection of birds, plants and marine life, and the world’s southernmost coral reef.

The pristine waters surrounding the island are teeming  a unique combination of tropical, subtropical and temperate marine life.There are almost 500 fish species including Yellowtail Kingfish, Bluefish, marlin, tuna and hundreds of tropical species. Over 80 species of coral occur in the reefs surrounding the islands.

The island’s unique species of birds can be seen throughout the island and the Lord Howe Woodhen, Golden Whistler, Silvereye and Currawong are found nowhere else in the world. The island is seasonal habitat to millions of seabirds such as Noddy terns, White terns, Sooty terns, Muttonbirds, Black winged petrels and Red-tailed tropic birds. Some migrate from as far as Siberia each year to breed.

In combination with a warm climate, vibrant local community and relaxing atmoshphere, Lord Howe is the perfect destination for all ages.
