Convenient location next to the Post Office to grab a burger, sandwich, or some general supplies and groceries. Note that groceries on the island can cost 2 or sometimes 3 times more than the mainland.

Thompson’s is the shop go to for friendly service and fair prices. Avoid Joy’s Shop unless you really need something Thompson’s do not stock. Joy’s Shop has inflated prices way beyond reasonable and a lack of friendly service!

Yes they do car hire. Not sure of the prices though. Lord Howe is a small island and if you can, bike riding is the go
