Lord Howe Island is an ideal destination to escape the worries of COVID-19. Our World Heritage listing caps the number of island-wide guests to 400 at any one time, and they scatter through two cafes, eight volcanic peaks, 10 square kilometres of lagoon, 18 surf spots, 20 beaches, 24 kilometres of coastline, and 45 kilometres of hiking track. In reality, you’ll feel like you have the place to yourself.
Our COVID-19 arrangements are based on a careful balance of health and holiday considerations. Clearly, we want you to come if you’re well, and stay home if you’re unwell. During your travel to Lord Howe, we want you to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission by wearing a mask in confined public spaces, such as planes and buses. Once you’re on the island, we want you to social distance, practice good hygiene and appreciate that our collective health is only as good as the weakest link. Hopefully, you’ll feel relaxed, well-hosted, and blissfully unaware of all the extra things we’ll be doing to keep you safe.
