Lord Howe Island Holidays

The Lord Howe Group of Islands comprises a series of seven-million year old volcanic formations, and lies in subtropical waters off the northern New South Wales coast.

Because of its isolation and absence of humans until recent times, Lord Howe has a unique natural history. Listed as a World Heritage site, these volcanic remnants have great natural value and beauty, with sandy beaches, coral reefs, imposing forest covered mountains and some of the rarest flora and fauna on earth.

Fifty seven of the islands’ 180 flowering plants and 54 fern species are not found anywhere else. Hundreds of thousands of seabirds roost on the island. Crystal clear waters teem with marine life and rare coral. The narrow crescent – shaped main island is only 11 kilometres long and has a strict tourist capacity of 400, which makes it the idyllic island paradise to enjoy a relaxing and revitalising holiday.

Take a stroll on the white sand beaches, snorkel over pristine coral reefs, scuba dive more than 50 sites with colourful fish, coral and green sea turtles.
