Wet weather can be a drag, or a convenient excuse to relax with a book – it depends on your attitude. On Lord Howe, guests with good raincoats can still experience something special. After 50mm of rain, you can walk to Little Island and see up to 27 waterfalls. Yes, you’ll get wet, but you’re only a short distance from a hot shower. Another option is the walk through Stevens Reserve, or the walk to the Valley of the Shadows. Both are under the canopy, and in some ways are better in the rain. Photographers should climb any one of our peaks and wait for sunny breaks and rainbows – some days we even see double rainbows.
For the less brave, a trip to the Museum is worthwhile, followed by a decent coffee at Anchorage. And for the cocooning types, you can relax and read a book, play pool or board games with other guests, or challenge yourself to our 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle. The most important thing to remember is that the lagoon is also wet, so you can go for a swim or snorkel, burn some calories, and earn your next meal. You’ll feel better without cabin fever.
