Secreted away in the Tasman Sea approximately 500km off the golden coast lines of Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbor, Lord Howe Island is one such destination. In fact, Lord Howe Island is so different to mainland Australia, that the island itself is almost like a little known mix of Australia and the country’s southern neighbour New Zealand.

Usually visited as part of our New South Wales tailor made holidays, Lord Howe Island is a volcanic, crescent shaped destination with breathtaking mountainous topography. Why do our holiday experts recommend visiting? That’s simple. 75% of Lord Howe Island is made up of permanent park reserve. Lush tropical forest and palm studded beaches subsequently make up the main part of the island, whilst the island itself is surrounded by the pristine and spectacular beauty of the world’s southernmost true coral reef.

For nature lovers and enthusiasts, Lord Howe Island is at the same time almost just as much a floating aviary as New Zealand, with the forested dip and swim of the island being home to a spectacular variety of unique bird species. The best part? Lord Howe Island is host to everything from spectacular walking and underwater activities, to exclusive dining and lodging. In fact, when you visit Lord Howe Island, you visit an island with just 400 tourist beds, making it the place in Australia to really get away from it all.

Ready to sample Australia’s best kept secret for yourself? The best part of our tailor made holidays, is that you get to tell our travel specialists where you want to go and what you want to experience. So call or contact us and talk to us about visiting Lord Howe Island yourself and let us start putting together a truly one in a life time travel itinerary.
