Getting There

Note: flight, boat, train and bus timetables change constantly, and airlines come and go, so please do not rely solely on this information for your travel planning. Check with relevant companies, or a flight search engine like Skyscanner, first.

Lord Howe Island is a 2-hour flight from Sydney. There are daily flights in peak season, or at weekends it’s possible to fly from Brisbane. The island airport is a few minutes away from Capella Lodge who will come and collect you – once you’re there you’ll probably walk or cycle everywhere (there are very few cars on the island – donkeys have right of way!)
