The Locals' Guide - Lord Howe Island


Malabar at Sunset

Posted by Pinetrees Lodge – Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Malabar is one of Lord Howe's iconic walks, and many guests reach the summit during their stay to see the vast area of cobalt blue ocean. But it's all about timing. Our suggestion is to make the most of the Lagoon during the day, and then climb Malabar in the evening (make sure you take a torch). It's one of the more special experiences you'll have - anywhere!


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.
