Seven Peaks Walk at Pinetrees Lord Howe Island

The Seven Peaks Walk is Lord Howe's premier five day guided adventure that takes you from pristine beaches and exposed coral platforms to the delicate mist forests on Mt Gower. Along the way, you'll see sheltered swimming coves, 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, of course) across a 300 vertical metre cliff. Other sections of the walk take you deep into Jurassic Park style banyan forests with the only rookeries of Providence petrels in the world. When you yell, the curious birds land at your feet, almost hypnotised. It's an incredible experience. The Seven Peaks Walk is a member of the Great Walks of Australia - a small collection of Australia's finest luxury walks.
