Lord Howe Island is full of life in October with seabirds courting nonstop. The bushwalkers groups in May and June 2021 have set an excellent trip format that we will continue. This trip includes flights, accommodation, meals, lectures, guided walks (day walks, night walks, reef walks, mystery walks, museum walk) and any fun activities that we can slot in. We will engage the best-known local expert Ian Hutton to share his in-depth knowledge about the flora, fauna, history and conservation of this world heritage.
