Pinetrees' Seven Peaks Walk hiking event showcases the best of Lord Howe Island - and as this video shows, there's plenty to do and see.
The Seven Peaks Walk takes guests from pristine beaches and exposed coral platforms to the delicate mist forests on the summit of Mt Gower. Along the way guests will see sheltered swimming coves (with swimming and snorkelling opportunities), subtropical palm forests, freshwater creeks, rugged sea cliffs and volcanic peaks.
Some sections of the walk, such as the Lower Road on Mt Lidgbird, wind along exposed narrow ledges (protected by ropes) across a 300 vertical metre cliff. Other sections of the walk take guests deep into Jurassic Park style banyan forests with the only rookeries of Providence petrels in the world.
Director of Pinetrees Lodge, Luke Hanson said, “We’ve been guiding guests around Lord Howe for 125 years, over six generations, and have come to learn the best combination of effort and reward to delight the most well-travelled international walkers. Our acceptance into Great Walks of Australia is an important step to help Lord Howe gain the recognition it deserves as a truly international walking destination."
