Arajilla Retreat

The property is perfectly placed to enjoy Lord Howe Island’s many enchantments, from cycling quiet roads to snorkelling in sheltered lagoons, walking the many trails or sunbathing on deserted sandy beaches. At the end of the day’s activities, wind down in the guest lounge with complimentary pre-dinner drinks and canapés before an indulgent three-course dinner in the restaurant. The kitchen turns out delicious gourmet meals each day, concocted from fresh local ingredients, produce from the hotel’s own veggie patch, as well as local line-caught fish, such as kingfish, yellow-fin tuna and wahoo.

Wildlife & Birdlife

Lord Howe Island is a veritable Garden of Eden. Over 500 species of fish and 90 species of coral have been recorded and flourish in its protected waters.

This remote island paradise is also home to more than 130 species of native and migratory birds. At the top of the list of sights is the Woodhen, as the island is the only place they can be found. Another rare sighting is the Lord Howe Island stick insect, due to the islands isolation and pristine ecosystem, it is the only known location of the insect.
