Six hundred kilometers east of mainland New South Wales rests one of Australia’s best-kept secrets; an island formed from volcanic remnants measuring only 10km in length and between 0.3 to 2km in width.
With a population of only 360 (very lucky individuals) Lord Howe Island allows for only four hundred tourists at any given time – meaning its peaceful, never overrun and remains relatively protected from (human) degradation.
Arguably one of the most beautiful islands in the world – Lord Howe Island will take your breath away. A lost world of endless charm and strong character; you will feel completely isolated here – which is a good thing – allowing you to disconnect from life and reconnect with your mind and body.
People often say that photographs fail to do the island justice? Well if that’s the case – and these photographs are anything to go by – please put us on a plane immediately.
Isn’t she divine?

Serenity like nowhere else…
Catching waves at day break, not a soul in sight.
Another day, another breathtaking sunset…
The water is crystal clear, the wildlife breathtaking.
If we know less about the ocean than we do outer space, can you imagine what kind of wonderful things might lie hidden beyond our grasp in the deep blue? Pretty glad we get to see these little fellas near the surface ? #lordhoweisland #underwater #oceanlife #paradise

No matter the weather, you’re still in paradise…

Sunsets that captivate.
Did we mention the place is also a foodie’s mecca?

Impressive views for those special occasions…
Clear nights, ten billion stars
The awe-inspiring Banyan Tree. Their roots create giant canopies and majestic archways, making you feel as if you are walking through an Enid Blyton novel. To think that a tree might be a century old and as grand in height certainly puts our tiny existence into perspective. ??? #photo by James Sherwood, Bluebottle Films #nature #canonaustralia #landscapes #natgeo #motherearth #trees #travel #lordhowe #visitnsw #seeaustralia #awesomeearth_pics #awesomeearth #OurPlanetDaily #travel #explore #seetheworld #adventure
