Lord Howe Island Marine Park
Lord Howe Island Marine Park is internationally significant, with the world's southernmost coral reef and the only fringing coral reef lagoon in NSW. The convergence of warm and cool waters results in a unique mix of temperate and tropical species, many of which can be seen in clear waters close to shore. Visitors can swim, dive, snorkel and kayak amongst colourful marine life, enjoy fishing from shore or on a charter boat and simply relax on pristine sandy beaches. Located about 700 kilometres northeast of Sydney, Lord Howe Island Marine Park is a multiple-use marine park that caters for many different recreational and commercial activities. The park protects marine biodiversity and areas of ecological and cultural importance, and provides for sustainable recreational and commercial activities. Visitors from around the world visit the marine park to dive, swim, snorkel, fish and holiday.
