Two words describe Lord Howe Island, off the coast of #NewSouthWales: Just Paradise. Explore the island by land or by sea, with ample opportunities for water-sports, bird watching, bike-riding and mountain hiking. Photo: @jewelszee
No need to hold your breath, paradise is closer than you think! A 2hr flight off the North Coast of NSW, Lord Howe Island is a snorkeler's dream with a sanctuary of wildlife both above and beneath the surface. #NewSouthWales @schoolmumpics
Take a walk on the north side. The Manly to Spit Bridge walk is a great way to get acquainted with the Northern Beaches, passing through harbourside trails with scenic lookouts offering views of Sydney Harbour, Grotto Point Lighthouse and Sydney Harbour National Park. #ilovesydney Photo: @mademoiselle_alexia
"Fancy a dip? #LakeMcKenzie on #FraserIsland is what's known as a 'perched lake' - so it's basically a giant natural swimming pool, completely full of fresh rainwater. Fraser Island is home to 40 of these lakes, which is actually half of the world’s perched freshwater dune lakes.
