Lord Howe Island is the best walking destination in Australia, and one of the best in the world. Its World Heritage listing is for scenic beauty, biodiversity and rare flora and fauna, and there’s a large variety of terrain in a small area. You can explore the intertidal zone at low tide and discover amazing life forms, you can walk along user-friendly graded tracks to swimming coves and lookouts, you can climb small hills and capture vistas that feature in David Attenborough documentaries, and you can climb big mountains.
Everywhere you look on Lord Howe there are amazing colours and textures. The light can be bright to showcase the range of blues in the water, it can be soft to provide subtle tonal contrast in the landscape, and it can be saturated. Best of all, you get to see the sunrise and sunset over water every day.
Our Photography Weeks from 9-13 November 2020 (available) and 10-14 May 2021 (available) will combine the skills of local guides and photographers to help you discover and capture the island’s stunning landscapes and life forms. Some walks will be self-guided, while others will have expert guides to explain the plants, geology, birds and marine life. Each guide can help you capture better images (and help you win our daily ‘best photo’ competition). In 2015, we were included in the Sydney Morning Herald’s ‘six of the best travel photography tours’ in the world. Other excellent reviews of our Photography Weeks have been published in the Sydney Morning Herald, Great Walks Magazine and Outdoor Magazine.
