New for 2021 – Lord Howe Island tour for nature lovers

October 13, 2020 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Botanica World Discoveries is pleased to announce the addition of a Lord Howe Island tour to its ever-growing domestic touring portfolio.

The 8-day small group tour departs Sydney on 18 April 2021 and is priced from $6,795 per person, twin share, and includes return airfares from Sydney to Lord Howe Island, all meals, sightseeing and 7 nights’ accommodation at the Leanda Lei Apartments, or the opportunity to upgrade to the Arajilla Retreat. For people travelling solo, the starting price for the 8-day tour is from $9,095.

The tour will be hosted by botanical guide and Lord Howe Island expert, Dr Ian Hutton, OAM. Author, photographer and naturalist, Hutton has lived on the Island for more than 40 years and will share his expansive local knowledge of the island’s biodiversity with its endemic plant species, diverse marine life and tropical climate.

Commenting on the Island location, Hutton said; “For me, living on Lord Howe Island is like living inside a David Attenborough documentary. Outside my front door is the island’s rainforest – alive with the calls of rare endemic birds.

“Through my observations, research and photography, I have been able to produce 10 books on the island, including five pocket guides to the flora and fauna, as well as a fern guide. I can’t wait to share it all with Botanica guests when they visit next year,” Hutton concluded.

In addition to writing numerous books, Hutton has also worked on a number of research projects about plants, birds, geology and climate change, plus has published numerous scientific papers.

Hutton will lead a maximum of 16 Botanica guests on a variety of nature walks each day of the tour and will also deliver four evening lectures covering the island’s history, ecology, endemic plants and conservation practices. Botanica encourages people with a high level of mobility to enjoy the wonderful sightseeing during walking tours.

Details of the trip can be found on the Botanica website – and a second departure is being planned for October 2021.

Celebrating 20 years of uncovering the world’s most enchanting gardens, Botanica World Discoveries is embracing its proud Australian heritage by continually expanding its domestic offering with the company recently announcing tours to Norfolk Island, the Murray River region, a South Australian Art and Gardens tour, the “Fork to Fork” tour in Victoria, the Melbourne Flower Show and more.

Each Botanica tour is accompanied by an expert Botanical Guide and incorporate visits to private gardens, iconic attractions along with art, music and gourmet experiences away from the main tourist trail.

The range of boutique tours are carefully curated to pique the interest of gardeners and non-gardeners alike offering an intimate exploration and a truly insightful experience.
