One of the best things about growing up on Lord Howe is unfettered access to nature; to be able to safely explore, swim, fish and surf; to not worry about locking any doors, or wear shoes... where everyone drives slow enough to wave hello, to have time to chat to visitors, and share our local knowledge. What a privilege it is now to be able to share all those unchanged qualities, and to see the delight that a visit to Lord Howe delivers!
Lord Howe has grown into a sophisticated destination, with great restaurants and world class diving, fishing, hiking and surfing - all carefully nurtured within an unique environment; uncrowded, undeveloped and breathtakingly beautiful. Our land tenure is particular to Lord Howe, and ensures we’ll never be over built. Waste management is innovative and widely admired as best-practice, and our weed eradication programs attract huge interest. World Heritage listing in 1982 certainly complemented the care our island community has always shown for Lord Howe, resulting in a high percentage of very happy return visitors!
