Pinetrees is an ideal gateway to the beauty and adventure of Lord Howe Island. Most of the island's outdoor activities are world-class and only a short bike ride away. Guests regularly comment on how much they can do in a short amount of time.

Our staff are experienced fisherman, surfers, walkers, photographers, golfers and divers. Every morning at breakfast, we’ll recommend where to go and what to do, depending on the weather and your level of enthusiasm. Some guests are happy to relax under one of the boatshed umbrellas, swim in the lagoon, and absorb the panorama of two of Australia’s most dramatic mountains. Other guests like to keep themselves busy – they might catch a 15kg kingfish, walk through ancient subtropical forest, surf perfect waves or dive on the southernmost coral reef in the Pacific Ocean. Guests can also challenge themselves on the island’s spectacular golf course.
