Ask the walking map at the visitor’s centre. It’s for free ! With this map you will be able to do the right walks. Sometimes it can be very steep ! That’s why you need the right information.

World class walking trails. There is something for everyone from extremely mountain climbing to casual scenic strolls that would be suitable for any level of fitness. All have great views and plenty of wildlife to take in.

The hikes on Lord Howe are magnificent. So pure and pristine with magnificent vistas from every side. There are unique plants and birds around every turn. Bring your camera and take your time to absorb it all.
