Lord Howe Island Somerset Apartments Fly-Stay – 8 days

Lord Howe Island is a haven for nature lovers and anyone who enjoys a slower pace of life!

The small Australian island is famous for its sandy beaches, subtropical forests and clear waters. In the south, a rugged trail winds up soaring Mount Gower for sweeping views of the length of the island. Ned’s Beach in the north has sea life and coral-rich waters – you can even hand-feed the friendly fish from the shallows.

The island is home to seabird colonies and the flightless and endangered Lord Howe woodhen. Renowned for incredible snorkelling in the lagoon and scuba diving, you’ll find many great dive sites surround the nearby Admiralty Islands.

On an island that has very few cars and allows no more visitors than residents, this magical getaway is ideal for travellers who want to switch off, slow down, relax and re-connect!

    Hello Laura,
    Marcia and I had a wonderful time, Lord Howe Island was great!

    The 80 minute flight to LHI was very good, minimal check-in time.

    Gaye from Somerset Apartments greeted us at the airport, which was nice, she gave us a bit of an island tour before going to Somerset a good orientation.

    Somerset Apartments are centrally located – actually a great position – and are nice and clean, with a really good bed . The kitchen is equipped with all the necessary electrical appliances and the bathroom / toilet has been recently renovated. The gardens around Somerset are really a tropical paradise.

    There are only 9 km of roads on the island and we found that walking everywhere was the way to go. Push bikes can be hired for A$75 per week, but we found this unnecessary.

    As you are well aware, there are many really good walks on the island and we did most of them. I climbed Mt Gower with the guided group and this was a top day out – not real cheap at A$200 pp plus A$20 pp for the bus, but worth it.

    The two shops were well stocked with most things that we needed – mainly food – and the butcher had good meat, fresh fish and a great deli . As expected, everything is somewhat more expensive than the mainland .

    There are several very good places to eat out – mainly the Anchorage Restaurant, The Museum Cafe, The Bowls Club and The Golf Club. Snacks are also available at the Pub.

    We went on the round the island bus trip, which was really informative and also went on the glass bottom boat – clear water, great coral and I had a good time snorkelling.

    Environmentally : The island is very clean and the residents have terrific “Civic Pride” – there are no electrical “Poles & Wires” – all electrical is underground, very few street lights (no light pollution) and no street advertising / billboards. Most of the electrical power for the island is generated with a fairly new A$12 million solar farm. The dump is a “High Tech” 90 – 95 % efficient recycling plant. ULP 91 petrol is A$4 per litre, soon to be A$4.50.

    The residents of LHI are very friendly and cooperative.

    On day 8 , Gaye drove us to the airport – with its new A$8 million runway – and we had a great flight back to The Gold Coast. The un-covered secure carpark at the airport , had no problems.

    For January , the weather on Lord Howe Island was very good with an ocean water temperature of 25 C .

    Laura , thanks for organising our trip.
    We hope to return!

    Best wishes and kind regards ,
    Geoff & Marcia 14 February 2023 .
