Average time to visit

In the southern half of Australia the seasons are the opposite of those in the northern hemisphere: spring comes in September, summer is from December to February, autumn runs from March to May, and winter begins in June. Lord Howe is good to visit year round as the sea temperature rarely drops below 19 degrees Celsius. Warmest weather is mostly between November and May.

A stunning turquoise lagoon stretches out in front of the lodge's indoor and outdoor lounging areas and the clever architectural design means that the floor to ceiling windows, open plan bar, lounge and restaurant really let the outside in - this is somewhere to truly escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
