Day 1, Home to Lord Howe Island (D)

Leave the pace of modern life behind as we immerse ourselves in the spectacular surroundings of UNESCO World Heritage listed Lord Howe Island. We make our way to Brisbane Airport where we board our flights to Lord Howe Island. On arrival we are met by our local host and transferred to our accommodation.

This afternoon we travel to the Museum where we’ll be given a lecture by Ian Hutton. Ian is the curator of the museum and a passionate environmentalist, saying “living on Lord Howe Island is like living inside a David Attenborough documentary”.

Dinner tonight is at the Coral Café, located in the museum, giving us a chance to look through some of the displays.

Day 2, Orientation of Island (B & D)

We are collected from breakfast for our Chase ‘N’ Thyme Half Day Island Tour. This tour gives a fascinating insight into the flora, fauna and unique island way of life. Our tour includes an explanation of every venue on the island including the waste and recycling centre (which is more interesting than you may imagine!)

Tonight, dinner is at the Golf Club.

Day 3, Exploring Lord Howe Island (B, L & D)

We enjoy a Little Island Walk with our guide who will take a comfortable pace allowing a chance for commentary along the way. This afternoon if the weather is good, we will have the opportunity to do our Around Island Cruise. The cruise takes us close to the stunning vertical cliffs of Mount Gower and Mount Lidgbird. We can spot Ball’s Pyramid in the distance on our way around the island. Cruise past the Admiralty Isles, see the arch, the Gulch and the Herring Pool. Bird life is in abundance on the island and it’s a great opportunity to see some of them, such as the red tailed tropic bird, masked boobies, sooty terns and common noddies that nest on the cliffs and outer island.

At 5pm we will be picked up to go see historic movies at the local Community Hall. The movies run for an hour and all proceeds go to the local island school to help students get off the island for an annual excursion. After our spectacular day we enjoy dinner tonight at Driftwood.

Day 4, North Bay (B, L & D)

We have a “Big Day Out” planned today. The Marine Adventure team will take us on an in-depth tour of the North Bay of the Island. Here we can view the large variety of fish, turtles, stingrays, and incredible coral. The islands history of marine life will be portrayed with the relaxed commentary through the eyes of a sixth-generation islander before an opportunity to snorkel in the waters with some of the best visibility available.

Bring your swimsuit, walking shoes and a hat (snorkelling gear and wetsuits are available on the boat) as the day could include anything and everything!

Dinner tonight is at Bowling Club.

Day 5, Cruising The Island (B, L & D)

This morning we take a glass bottom boat trip on the brilliant blue lagoon, which was formed by a natural barrier of 6km of the worlds southernmost coral reef. The waters are home to more than 500 species of fish and 90 species of coral. We’ll see beautiful coral outcrops, surging strands of algae, colourful sponges and a wonderful array of fish life as we cruise over Cornets Hole and Erscotts Hole.

We have lunch included today at Coral Café before an afternoon at leisure. Options include taking a walk, going for a swim or simply relaxing with a good book.

Tonight, we are off to Anchorage, our hosts for dinner.

Day 6, Gentle Walk (B, D)

We meet our guide for an interesting walking tour to a grassy clearing known as the Clear Place. There are great views of the south end of the island, including Intermediate Hill and Mt Lidgbird and if the weather is clear, you may also be able to see Ball’s Pyramid in the distance.

This afternoon we will be visiting the North Eastern section of the island at Neds Beach where we have the opportunity to feed the fish (weather permitting). There are several species of fish that live in the waters at Neds Beach. You can expect to see silver drummers, wrasse, mullets, kingfish, garfish and event the spangled emperor. It’s a real frenzy of placid, but hungry fish.

Our farewell dinner is at Anchorage.

Day 7, Homebound (B)

With our bags packed full of memories, we say goodbye to Lord Howe Island. It’s easy to see why this place is so special, with its relaxed atmosphere, beautiful scenery and friendly locals. We board our flights back to Brisbane and arrive home from a fantastic holiday.
