About Lord Howe Island - A Rare Place Of Exceptional Beauty
Surrounded by marine life so rich in diversity, that new species are still being discovered, Lord Howe Island is home to more than 500 species of fish and 90 species of coral.
The unique marine life has contributed significantly towards the Island being listed as World Heritage. These waters are pristine, relatively untouched with a long standing prohibition of nets, spear guns and other commercial forms of fishing.
Renowned for its pristine waters, Lord Howe Island is a water lover's playground. Scuba divers can dive at more than 50 sites, ranging from shallow waters near the beach to spectacular caves and volcanic drop-offs. Snorkelers can swim next to moon wrasse or turtles, or the more adventurous can kayak and explore The Lagoon or sail their own boat around surrounding islands.
Guests can also go fishing in Lord Howe's abundant waters and catch kingfish, wahoo and yellowfin tuna. Or head down to Neds Beach and feed mullet, wrasse, garfish, silver drummer, spangled emperor and metre long kingfish!
