To and From the Airport

Lord Howe Island (LDH):

Location: More or less at the centre of the island.
Transport Summary: There is no official transport from the airport, but wherever you stay, you are likely to be met on arrival by the lodge-owner. The island has only one road and relatively few cars. There is no regular bus service, but lodge hosts and restaurants will often pick up and drop off customers. Otherwise, Wilson’s can do pick-ups and drop-offs. The most common ways to get around are by bicycle, boat or on foot. There are plenty of places to rent bikes but the drawback is that they don’t have lights, so if you want to ride at night attach a torch. Leanda Lei Apartments (tel 02/6563 2195) rents out mountain bikes for $7.50 per day, $50 per week, but note that guests have preference. Otherwise, the main outlet is Wilson’s Bike Hire, opposite Lagoon Beach (Tel 02/6563 2045, $3 per day plus $1 for helmets, minimum charge of $5 per day), but the bikes are basic, with no gears – and there are some steep hills on the island. Both Wilson’s and Leanda Lei also rent cars ($40–50 per day plus 20¢ per km).
