Lord Howe Island Walking Trails, Lord Howe Island

#2 of 18 in Things to do in Lord Howe Island
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.

  • We have expired some tracks and enjoyed every step in during our time at LHI. Highly recommended is Malabar Hill, overlooking the whole island with the two mountains in the background. Or the "counterpart" to do so, the climb of Mt Gower. The walks are well marked, more walks, sometimes with some sharp points or paragraphs. Look at the Goat House Cave still "around the corner", where you have a great view of the ball's pyramid has. There's a good PDF with descriptions and a map on the Internet page of the LHI Board. Except for MT Gower, all tracks are loose on a half day or less feasible.
