The Locals' Guide - Lord Howe Island


Trailer - Locals' Guide to Lord Howe

Posted by Pinetrees Lodge – Wednesday, November 28, 2018

The Locals’ Guide to Lord Howe Island is written and photographed by a collective of island locals who love their home and have knowledge to share. To date, 60 of the best locations and activities are described in detail, with more content coming every week.

The contributors to the Locals’ Guide include a lawyer with an MBA (Denis Corcoran), a scientist (Luke Hanson), a professional editor (Geordie Tennant), a hotelier (Dani Rourke) and a multi-lingual marketer whose last job was with the United Nations (Pia Funch). We are blessed with talent and motivation, and the resulting Locals’ Guide is unique in its originality, quality and detail.

We write about places that only locals know about, we provide tips and details that only locals know about, and we tell stories about some quirky locals that only an isolated island in the northern Tasman Sea can produce.

Anyone with an interest in travel, photography or videography will enjoy spending a few hours reading the Locals’ Guide, and anyone with an interest in Lord Howe Island, in particular, will enjoy the distraction of some quality content.


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.
