Standing over Lord Howe Island at 875 metres tall is Mount Gower; the island's highest mountain. The mountain takes you on an eight-hour trek with sweeping views.
Considered to be one of Australia's best day walks, journey on rope-assisted climbs with dramatic drops and lush wildlife surrounding you. Once you reach the peak, the view is well worth the challenge with moss covered forest and ferns surrounding. On the walk, you will experience rare island plants and birdlife, along with all sorts of fauna and flora.
This 14-kilometre walk is not for the light-hearted, so if you're up for the challenge, make sure you're in good health with no previous knee or back problems. Mount Gower is located in the south of Lord Howe Island and hikes are required to be pre-booked, with limited places available. To experience the walk, arrange a licensed guide to take you through this rugged terrain.
