Walking one of the many tracks on Lord Howe Island is an experience you will never forget, with spectacular views, breathtaking coastlines, beautiful rainforests and unique bird watching.

Bushwalking Tracks

There are extensive tracks and walks on Lord Howe Island, each varying in difficulty level. The most challenging walk on the Island is the Mt. Gower hike, taking approximately 8 hours to complete, with an experienced guide to assist you with the ropes up the mountain. This trek is ranked as one of the best one-day treks in the world.

The trek to the top of the 147 metre Mt. Eliza offers remarkable views of the lagoon, the southern mountains and the Old Gulch. This trek is just as adventurous as the Mt. Gower hike however is an option for the less-experienced hiker.

"Arajilla is in a terrific location near a beach and so close, by foot or bike, to all amenities and sights. We stayed in a Kentia room and it was very well furnished and cleaned each day to an exceptionally high standard. Loved the mini-bar and all the yummies in it. A quiet and relaxing place to stay."
