Like many people in the world, I’m a big fan of sun, sand, and swimming in the sea. Which is why I’m particularly attracted to island holidays, such as the ones I’ve enjoyed in Cambodia. However one part of the world I’ve yet to enjoy, and one which is blessed with beautiful islands nearby, is Australia – and in particularly Lord Howe Island.

Lord Howe Island is a World Heritage-listed island located a few hours flight away from Brisbane or Sydney. At any given time you will be one of just 400 or so visitors to this beautiful little paradise, meaning your diving, kayaking, snorkelling, surfing or swimming adventures can be enjoyed in relative isolation, a rare treat compared with many of the more touristy islands dotted around the world. For those less enamoured by the sea, it is also possible to trek up to Mount Gower (875m) for beautiful panoramic views.

Numerous Lord Howe Island packages are available to help you get the most out of your trip, which can include a stay at the beautiful Pinetrees Lodge. Other activities available for visitors on Lord Howe Island include relaxing spa treatments, great restaurants, and some unrivalled bird-watching opportunities on an Island home to 130 permanent and migratory bird species.

2 Thoughts on “A Paradise Island just a Stone’s Throw from Oz

  1. Wow guys! Looks like Skull Island! Amazing, and really, Aussie-land has so many beautiful spots and close-by paradises, it’s one of the most awesome areas on earth. We did Fiji for 4 months this past year and I must say, I hadn’t seen a more pristine area on earth….and I’ve seen a few. This island definitely rivals Savusavu and the entire island of Vanua Levu in Fiji.

    Awesome-ness 🙂

    Paradise-type islands are my favorite vacay spots on earth. I love the city, and I do appreciate areas away from the coast but there’s something like a remote, quiet, pristine paradise located on the sea. Places like Koh Lanta, and the more quiet areas of Bali and Phuket (Yes, the QUIET areas) , well, they have a sweet spot in my heart. I feel that as an island hopping pro blogger that these are the spots where I most want to hang, and I also feel they most align with my brand.

    I am kinda picky like that.

    As I said, we did Fiji and this island looks just as beautiful as the many stunning islands in the South Pacific. Great share guys and now I have to add it to my travel list when we’re in the area again. We’re doing Bali in February for 4 months and it’s not far at all from Oz so we may just have to add this one to our trip.

    Thanks Guys!
