About Lord Howe Island

World Heritage-listed Lord Howe Island is a lush natural paradise, located in the Tasman Sea, just under two hours by plane from both Sydney and Melbourne. The island is tiny - just 11 kilometres long and 2.8 kilometres at it’s widest, but it’s jammed packed with incredible wildlife, lush mountains and stunning beaches. he product of a volcanic eruption seven million yers ago, Lord Howe Island became a haven for plants and seabirds. As such, rare flora and fauna abound on the island and 64 unique species of flowering plants and more than 130 bird species can be found here, such as the endangered flightless woodhen. T Incredibly, a maximum of only 400 visitors are allowed on the island at any one time, and there are only 382 permanent residents, so this really is the ultimate retreat from reality. The pace of life on the island is slow, people travel on bikes everywhere, or on foot to take advantage of the many fantastic hikes on offer here. Other attractions on the island include the beautiful 18 hole golf course, scuba diving, snorkelling and fishing.
