Discover world-class diving, snorkelling, fishing, walking, surfing, kayaking and golf, or just relax and rejuvenate on Australia's most beautiful island.

Lord Howe Island is one of the most spectacular destinations in the world. Its dramatic scenery, lush subtropical forests, rare flora and fauna, pristine beaches and colourful marine life are breathtaking and unique. In combination with a warm climate, vibrant local community and great range of world-class activities, Lord Howe is the perfect destination for all ages. In recognition of its scenic beauty and biodiversity, Lord Howe was inscribed as a World Heritage site in 1982. The list includes Uluru, Kakadu, Fraser Island and the Great Barrier Reef.

We are serious about food and wine. It's the feature of a Pinetrees holiday. The quality of our food is exceptional and we serve full breakfasts, lunches (including picnics and BBQs), afternoon teas and 4 course dinners every day. Our chefs have worked in some of Australia's best restaurants and can prepare meals for all dietary requirements. All you need to do is eat, drink and enjoy – we'll do the shopping, cooking and cleaning.

Every year we host a variety of great events including the Seven Peaks Walk, photography classes, wellness retreats, dive weeks and ocean swim weeks. We also offer 15 tailored adventure activities, through partnerships with the best local guides, to help guests experience parts of Lord Howe Island that very few people see. Read the Locals' Guide to Lord Howe Island to learn more about our best activities and secret spots.
