Located in the Pacific, Lord Howe Island is widely regarded as the most beautiful island in this region, and is the closest island getaway to Sydney.
This island can be reached in less than two hours when flying from either Sydney or Brisbane off Australia’s east coast. One of the four islands to be featured on UNESCO’s World Heritage list, Lord Howe Island is known for its natural beauty and heritage.
If a quiet peaceful island is what your looking for, then this is the perfect place to be. It is a very relaxing place where you may choose to enjoy unspoiled, un-crowded beaches with perfect golden sands.
A crystal lagoon borders the world’s most southerly coral reef, teeming with colorful tropical and sub-tropical fish, turtles and other marine life. The water is so clean and clear that it leaves one feeling as though they are swimming in a giant aquarium.
Families can enjoy the safety and variety of children activities, while lovers will find many romantic spots in the island’s secluded corners and luxury lodges. For the adventurous type, there are bush walks and more strenuous hikes including Mt. Gower, which has been rated as one of the best day walks in the world.
Visiting Lord Howe’s Island feels like escaping to an environment where you are met with a hospitality and friendly service second to none. You may not want to leave when this vacation is over!
