Lord Howe Island Bushwalking Trips

Discover a walker’s paradise

Lord Howe Island is made for walkers and our bushwalking trips take full advantage of the complex network of walking tracks that weave their way throughout the diverse habitats on the Island; many providing stunning island views along the way.

With tracks graded from easy hikes in the lowlands, right up to the 9-hour climb to the summit of Mt Gower, the Island has walks to suit every level of fitness. Explore lowland forests, 875m tall rainforest clad mountains, the world’s most southerly coral reef and thronging seabird colonies.

There is so much to see and explore and it’s all packed into an Island only 11km long and 2km wide making it perfect for discovery on foot.

In addition to knowledge shared by Ian in guided walks and lectures about the geology, birds, plants and the marine environment of the Island, bushwalking tours are packed with additional delights such as “mystery” walks to tracks and areas less visited by general tourists, “discovery” walks at night to look for nocturnal animals at beach or in bush.
