OVERVIEW

Swaying palm trees, breathtaking coastal scenery, a crystal-clear lagoon and the southern-most coral reef in the world all feature on this World Heritage Site. The island's isolation in the Pacific Ocean makes it home to 64 species of unique rainforest plants and teeming seabird colonies. However it's very accessible, being only a couple of hours flight from either Sydney or Brisbane.

Travel on this island is done primarily by foot on an excellent network of walking trails that criss-cross the island's volcanic landscape. To maintain such an unspoilt paradise, the number of tourists to the island is restricted. Care and consideration from all visitors is vital to the preservation of this unique environment. We stay and dine at the luxurious 5-star Arajilla Retreat ensuring that you'll be wowed on and off the track.  This is a very special trip!

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Panoramic views of the sparkling lagoon and ocean
  • Reef walk at picturesque Ned's Beach
  • Mutton Bird Point amongst other superb bird watching vantage points
  • Quintessential paradise of North Beach
  • Incredible coral viewing boat ride
  • Opportunity to scale Mt Gower, the island's highest mountain
  • Spotting the wood hen, one of the world's rarest birds

GENERAL INFO

Flights to the island are only provided by Qantas Link. The earlier you book the better. Most walks are easy to moderate, although track surfaces can be rough and uneven. The two most challenging walks are Goat House Cave and Mt Gower which will suit those who like to challenge themselves a little (that’s a lot on Mount Gower). Although almost everyone always gets up Mt Lidgbird to Goats.  An alternative walk is offered on both days. As well as hiking we spend time on a boat trip snorkelling on reefs, lazing and BBQ-ing on the beach and sipping champagne at sunset.

See the Bureau of Meteorology for information about temperatures and rainfall ahead of time to ensure proper clothing.

The walk starts at the Lord Howe airport where you will picked up and driven to your accommodation.

    Lord Howe Island is a little blip of land in a big ocean, anchored by two large mountains of volcanic origin at the southern end, a ridge at the other, with a lagoon running along its western side. It is lush, beautiful, peaceful.
    To be cossetted in the beautiful surrounds of Arajilla Retreat, fed wonderful food beautifully presented, enjoy the company of a fun, like minded group – what’s not to enjoy?
    Then there were our two lovely and superb guides, Marie and Katie. Good fun, helpful, flexible, nothing seemed too much trouble, whether they were out the front leading or ensuring the safe return of some of the slower walkers, like me.
    The walking required a lot of concentration and is measured more in ups and downs than kms covered, as there are many steps and paths can be very slippery and uneven with hidden challenges from roots and rocks.
    The scenery is superb, with the different light changing the landscape, and the kentia palms, banyans and other vegetation providing intriguing scenes.
    An afternoon snorkelling over the brilliant coral on the edge of the lagoon was a wonderful experience, again with great support offered to those who needed it.
    A most enjoyable week in a stunning landscape. Thank you Auswalk.
