There are numerous walks on Lord Howe Island - far to many to mentioned here. We have done everyone and enjoyed them all. There is something different to see every time. Some walks are quite physical and others are pleasurable.

We went to Lord Howe expecting great water-based activities (swimming, snorkelling, sea kayaking, diving) but were very impressed with the network of walking trails. Every day we headed out to explore. Too many for a week, so we'll have to go back and do more....More

We are in our 50s and of average fitness, and did two of the more reasonable walks during our stay. Both highly recommended. Be prepared - both walks require good walking shoes, plenty of water and some fruit or snacks to have along the way....More

I managed to walk a number of the trails, which had wonderful views, amazing vegetation, bird life and lots of exercise up hills and down hills. Some trails such as malabar and kyms lookout lead to north beach, very refreshing on a hot day. Others...More

Being a small island there'll be changes in the weather within a day. It can shower on & off then be sunny. If it's windy on one side or one end then it will be better on the other side. A spray-jacket is useful. Quoting... More
