Lord Howe Island Walking Trails, Lord Howe Island
(4.9/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Idyllic Lord Howe Island Walking Trails take visitors along coral-fringed lagoons and through lush palm forests, with dozens of lookouts from which the island’s two imposing peaks, Mount Lidgbird and Mount Gower, are clearly visible. There are a number of well-marked trails to choose from on this island, which is only 11 km (6.8 mi) long and 2 km (1.2 mi) wide, with more than half of its area designated as a permanent park preserve. Hikers of all ages and fitness levels can enjoy these guided walks, ranging from light strolls, to moderate cliff-top hikes, to challenging climbs to the top of Mount Gower which, rising to 875 m (2,871 ft), is the highest point on the island.

  • The Goat House walk and Malabar Hill to Kim's Lookout were the highlights on this spectacular Island. 
  • Only managed to squeeze in four walks during a week on Lord Howe: Mt Gower (must use guide), Transit Hill, Goat House Cave and the circuit past Kim's Lookout to Old Gulch and back via Old Settlement. ...  more »
  • The walking trails on LHI are incredibly well maintained and appropriately rated. There is something for everyone - easy, flat walks all the way up to very tough climbs.
