summer festival of lord howe island

Pinetrees pentathlon on Lord Howe Island

Join us for a festival of adventure, fitness, food, wine and music. We’ll have yoga, guided adventure activities, adventure races, cooking master classes, wine tastings, long picnic lunches, amazing dinners, and live music. Imagine everything that Lord Howe Island is celebrated for, in perfect summer weather, and we’ll do it all in one week - the Summer Festival of Lord Howe Island.

The Summer Festival includes:

  • intimate evening performances from multiple ARIA award winner, Jeff Lang, who was described by Rolling Stone Magazine as “Australia’s best roots-music musician” (from 27-30 January inclusive) - that's four nights with one of the best!

  • morning group yoga classes with yoga-guru to the stars, Charlotte Dodson (and options for private classes during the day) 

  • afternoon cooking master classes and wine tastings with Tom Kime, a protégé of Rick Stein, Ruth Rogers and David Thompson, and author of six excellent cookbooks - you'll taste at least five amazing dishes in each class

  • an invitation to compete in the inaugural Three Peaks Adventure Race - a test of endurance, strength and navigation skills - and win a free stay at Pinetrees in 2020, with a friend, to defend your title

  • guided snorkelling, diving, kayaking, fishing and hiking (additional costs apply)

  • 6 nights’ accommodation at TripAdvisor’s No.1 Hotel in Australia for 2017 & 2018

  • full breakfasts

  • lunches (either at Pinetrees, gourmet BBQ hamper or picnic lunch)

  • afternoon teas

  • 4 course dinners (and Tom Kime’s five course festival dinner)

  • island airport transfers

The Summer Festival will run from 27 January to 2 February 2019. Packages start from $3,066.00 per person twin share in a Transit Hill Room, excluding airfares. Music performances with Jeff Lang, yoga classes with Charlotte Dodson, and cooking classes with Tom Kime are free-of-charge for Pinetrees guests. Join us for a very special week (and it’s NOT school holidays). Please call Pinetrees Travel on (02) 9262 6585 or contact us for more information or to make a booking.

Three Peaks Adventure Race
Competitors in the Three Peaks Adventure Race will cover 15km over 750 vertical meters. Most of the route will be along single tracks and spectacular volcanic ridges. Competitors will need to lodge their best current times for a 10km walk and a 5km run to help officials determine the fairest handicap start times. The winner will be invited back to Pinetrees Lodge, free-of-charge for seven nights, with a friend, to defend their title in 2020 (conditions apply).

Pinetrees Pentathlon
The Pinetrees Pentathlon ‘PP’ is a team relay event that tests intellect, speed, endurance, skill and teamwork. The inaugural PP in 2018 was one of our funniest days of the year, but don’t let the fancy dress fool you – it was serious.
