ACTIVITIES

Explore the extraordinary scenery and wildlife of World Heritage listed Lord Howe Island. Be as active or as passive as you like. Walk bush trails, climb mountains, swim, surf, snorkel, fish, cycle around the Island, play golf beneath the mountains, lie on a deserted beach, enjoy a massage or treatment, savour fine food and wine.

Walking – Although only 11km long and 2km wide, Lord Howe is laced with dozens of delightful, well-marked walking trails; nearly two thirds of the island is a Permanent Park Preserve.

Snorkelling – The Lord Howe Island waters are home to an astounding 500 species of fish and 90 coral species.
A State Marine Park was declared in 1998 and a Commonwealth Marine Park in 1999 – this is the world’s cleanest and clearest ocean: it’s like swimming in an aquarium!
The sparkling lagoon is protected by the world’s southern-most coral reef, creating a spectacular line of white surf against a blue backdrop of the South Pacific Ocean.

Bird watching – Lord Howe Island is Australia’s premier bird watching destination, with 14 species of seabirds breeding here in the hundreds of thousands.

Scuba Diving – Lord Howe Island’s abundant marine life and crystal clear waters attract divers from around the world to explore some of the best dive sites on the planet.

ENVIRONMENT

While more than five hundred species of fish navigate the ninety species of coral in the surrounding waters, the island itself is home to more than a hundred and thirty species of birds, both native and migratory.
It is, for instance, the only place in the world at which avid and casual birdwatchers alike can find the Woodhen. Because of the isolated and pristine nature of the island’s ecosystems, it is the only known location of the appropriated named Lord Howe Island stick insect.
The forests are virtually untouched, and natural attractions on the island include the variety of upper mantle and oceanic basalts, the world’s southernmost barrier coral reef, and a rich historical and cultural heritage.
Lord Howe Island rewards bird watchers and eco-enthusiasts with never ending, awe-inspiring discoveries.

Lord Howe Island is, in a word, ‘paradise’, a paradise that has held World Heritage Protection Status since 1982. This tiny island (11km x 2.8km) is located only two hours by plane from Sydney or Brisbane. Its climate can be best described as a perpetual spring. It plays host to a exceptional range of natural phenomena, rich terrestrial and marine diversity, and an ecosystem developed from submarine volcanic activity.

Everything about Arajilla Retreat is special with luxury accommodation and excellent service. Some guests visit for an adventure holiday, seeking out every corner of the World Heritage island, while others choose just to lay back and relax.

The boutique accommodation at Arajilla Retreat consists of 12 luxuriously appointed suites, each spacious and light filled with private decks. Suites are nestled amongst the forest so guests can experience firsthand, the sights and sounds of this unspoiled environment.

Blue Peter Beach House accommodates two guests in self-contained luxury and privacy.

Arajilla’s Restaurant serves premium, locally sourced ingredients like line caught fish and fresh produce from the resort’s own kitchen garden, skillfully prepared by Chef Ben Crompton and his team.

Arajilla’s day spa is specially housed in a traditional yurt under the majestic Banyan Tree forest. We have the perfect setting to relax, unwind and enjoy all that Lord Howe has on offer. Here, you will enjoy your massages and spa treatments in total serenity, with the gentle sounds of nature keeping you company.
