Nature Walk

Discover Lord Howe's plants, history, geology and conservation on a 4-hour walk

This 4-hour Nature Walk with naturalist Ian Hutton is the perfect introduction to Lord Howe Island. Starting at the Museum with a 10-minute plant presentation, we then begin an easy walk. Trekking through lowland rainforest, we get a close up look at the Island’s endemic plants. Ian will share stories of their origins, uses on the Island and individual idiosyncrasies.

A font of Island knowledge, Ian will also share snippets of history, information on the volcanic geology and tales about local conservation efforts along the way. There will be opportunities to spot the many unique landbirds of the Island, including the ever-popular Woodhens.

Once we reach the top of Transit Hill, the 360-degree view of the Island is a stunning sight, offering a unique overview and perspective on this World Heritage Site.

Ian's Gallery

There was quite a lot of interest in my last post. Here some more drone images of the coral with low tides. Our coral is in trouble… hottest summer, highest water temperature ever recorded, bleaching and now this stress of being exposed high and dry for hours; a wake up call for all on Climate Change #lordhoweisland #coralreef #coralbleaching #lagoon #lowtide #lordhoweislandmarinepark #worldheritage #dronephotography #coral #naturephotography
Extraordinary low tides this week with new moon and a sea level anomaly; so much coral exposed #lordhoweisland #coralreef #coral #lowtide #drone #island #worldheritage #lordhoweislandmarinepark #naturephotography
