what to bring

Fishing on Lord Howe Island

You don't need to pack fancy clothes - guests wear resort wear/beach wear/active wear during the day and smart casual clothes to dinner. You may also need a light jumper for cool evenings which can occur year round. We have a complimentary guest laundry.

Suggested items to bring: a reusable water bottle, torch, raincoat, swimming costumes, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, insect repellent, books, camera and accessories, reef walking shoes, comfortable walking shoes, day pack and personal toiletries.

If you can’t get by without your IT you can of course bring your laptop (Wifi available at Coral Café and Anchroage Café), portable DVD player or iPad.

If you have a prescription snorkeling mask we recommend bringing that, otherwise you can easily rent snorkeling equipment from many places on the island.

Pinetrees provides hair dryers, luxury bathroom amenities, beach towels, rain umbrellas.

Other businesses hire bikes, cars, snorkeling equipment, diving equipment, surfboards, kayaks, wind surfers and kite surfers, sailing boats, fishing equipment, beach umbrellas and golf clubs.

There are two general stores on the island, Joys and Thompsons, where you'll find a limited selection of most items like toiletries, snorkelling equipment, toys and other items you might like to purchase during your stay.

Traveling with Infants: Pinetrees have a number of strollers you can use and cots are provided in the rooms for infants. If you’d like to bring your own stroller you can but a portable cot is not necessary. A number of baby ‘cabooses’ are available to hire with your bikes from Wilson’s hire. If you’d like to pre-book those (recommended for busy times of the year) please call Wilson’s Hire on 02 6563 2045 to reserve one for your stay. If you’d like to know about what nappies and other baby items are available to purchase on the island you can speak to Joy’s shop on 02 6563 2121 or Thompson’s Store on 02 6563 2155. It’s not necessary to bring baby food as the chefs will prepare baby food for infants. If you’d like to bring along extra treats or special foods that they particularly enjoy you can. There is a fridge in your room.

Children’s Bicycle helmets – Wilson’s Hire have a range of bicycle helmets for children but if you’d like to bring your own please do so.
