North Bay

Natural Attractions

At the north of Lord Howe lies North Bay, a secluded bay and beach accessible only by foot or water, protected by a no-take sanctuary zone.

Travellers admire migratory sea birds and take short walks to Mount Eliza, Old Gulch and Herring Pools from the bay, or laze the day away on the white, sandy beach. Amazing snorkelling opportunities can be found within the North Bay Sanctuary Zone, with a large variety of fish, turtles, stingrays and colourful corals all common sightings.

Snorkellers can also explore the wreck of the Favourite, located near the pink courtesy moorings within the bay, which has rested on the ocean floor since 1965.
