Lord Howe Island is well known for its scenic beauty and biodiversity. However, it also has a relatively unknown and fascinating history. Some families have been on the same land for 160 years.
In many ways, Lord Howe Island is like a small country town in the Pacific Ocean and islanders have a healthy disrespect for mainland authority. There are only about 350 permanent residents and visitor numbers are limited to 400. Visitors are always fascinated by day-to-day island living. It’s similar to any small town in NSW, except there are a few captivating differences.
