World Heritage Dive Holiday at Lord Howe Island

While the Aussie dollar is low, the opportunity to find our own national treasures is more inviting than overseas. Lord Howe Island is an amazing place when you see it’s natural beauty.
Lord Howe Island is an easy 2 hour flight from Sydney, Brisbane or Port Macquarie and is approximately the same Latitude as Coffs Harbour. The Island offers treasures to see both above and below the water, so the trip Ideally suits divers and non-divers, and families. The scenery is just spectacular and is one place you must see.
Underwater is also has some amazing treasures. Whilst Coffs Harbour has a similar latitude to Lord Howe, the mix of marine life takes a tropical twist. Corals are more prolific, the fish are more tropical and the rock substructure is totally different there.
There is also the opportunity to take in one of the most elusive dive sites of the world and that is diving Ball’s Pyramid.
Ball’s Pyramid is 20 km south of Lord Howe and has spectacular diving. Loaded with resident Galapagos Sharks and large pelagic fish like Kingfish and Jacks, it also offers secrets like the very rare Ballina Angelfish.
