A circumnavigation by boat around Lord Howe Island is a spectacular way to see this magnificent island paradise. The stunning scenery,seen from the water, gives a totally different perspective to much of the islands topography.In particular one is surprised to see the relative narrowness of the peaks of Mt Gower and Mt Lidgbird when viewed from the eastern side of the island.When we rounded the southern tip to see Balls Pyramid emerge from the waves in front was also a wonderful sight. One also gets a close-up view of the Admiralty Islands and and the steep cliffs of Mallabar Hill and Kims Lookout.Rounding the corner at Mt Eliza the captain backs into a cave for an interesting experience before rounding the final corner,passing through the barrier reef to dock back at the wharf in the shetered lagoon.
