A Taste of The Itinerary

A Taste of the Itinerary

A stunning refreshing retreat to Lord Howe Island, a tiny island 600 kms off the east Australian Coast. 11km long and at its widest point 2kms wide one of the most sort after locations off the East Coast of Australia and less than 3 hours flying time earning its rightful place at the top of everyone’s must see list due to its unique natural habitat.

The surrounding waters overflow with marine life such as green turtles, dolphins, fish species and the most southern coral reef. It truly is like no other place on earth and it will be a destination you’ll talk for ever. The reef exists within Lord Howe Islands protected Marine Park and is subject to fishing restrictions, meaning that the reef is hosts to over 90 species of corals and 500 sub-tropical fish species, many of which are endemic to the island.

Our week retreat to Lord Howe Island showcases unique and untamed beauty of the laid-back pace of life, proudly preserved eco system, modern cuisine by nationally recognised chefs, matching wines and cocktails by sunset.

On arrival we are greeted by our island host Carli Christian taken on a short island tour along the lagoon road past Ned’s Beach and to our awaiting accommodation at Somerset Apartments. During this retreat we split stay accommodation, 4 nights in self-contained unit whilst we showcase the islands cafes, restaurants and clubs and once we have settled into our new-found pace of life enhanced by the limited technology, no traffic and silent evenings moving to the splendid Arajilla Retreat for 3 nights of pure luxury under the rainforest canopy with the beach at our doorstep.
