Capella Lodge


Rare birds, plants, geology and marine life; explore the most remote rocky coves, undertake a journey of discovery with world renowned naturalist Ian Hutton, spend a day walking to the summit of Mt Gower rated as one of Australia’s best day walks or “bus it” around the Island to get your bearings.

Play 9 holes on the most picturesque course in Australia, swing a tennis racket or bowl with the locals. Visit the Lord Howe Island museum and visitor centre for more information on this unique Island.

Lord Howe Island has a myriad of land based activities for you to enjoy.

“Lord Howe Island is a hot pot of the best parts of the world: the sublime beauty of Bora Bora, the laid back pace of Byron Bay, the far-flung mystery of the Far East and the village style and spirit of Nantucket and the Hamptons”

Janine McCulloch, Slow Coasting
