The Locals' Guide - Lord Howe Island


Australian Geographic Expedition to Lord Howe

Posted by Pinetrees Lodge – Friday, July 20, 2018

The Australian Geographic Expedition to Lord Howe Island, supported by the CSIRO, led 20 citizen scientists to some of Lord Howe Island’s remotest corners. Along the way, they discovered two new species of wasp and soldier fly.


The Locals’ Guide to Lord Howe Island is written by Denis Corcoran, Pia Funch, Luke Hanson, Geordie Tennant and Dani Rourke. We regularly visit the island’s iconic locations (and our secret spots) in different conditions, seasons and times of day (by foot, bike, kayak, boat and snorkel), and hope to share our experiences with you. If you need some travel inspiration, details on locations and the best activities, or just a brief online escape from your daily routine, then read our posts about life on Lord Howe Island.
