Hidden 700km kilometres north-east of Sydney, discover the jewel that is the World Heritage listed Lord Howe Island.

The island is home to a wealth of treasures that you can explore at your own pace either on foot or by bicycle. The picture-perfect beaches are also a joy to experience whilst the protected bays are filled with kaleidoscopic coral that offer superb snorkelling opportunities. Mount Gower, the tallest mountain at 875 metres above sea-level, offers incredible vistas over the crescent shaped island below – a highlight for hiking enthusiasts. There are plenty of other day-hikes available to smaller hilltops as well as secluded beaches. 

Before winging your way to the island, spend 2-nights at the Four Seasons Sydney. Located in the city’s heart, with Circular Quay at its doorstep, the hotel offers views directly at the Harbour Bridge and iconic Sydney Opera House. Expect elegant guestrooms, state-of-the-art facilities and silver-service that make the Four Seasons one of the world’s leading hotel groups.
