The why of Howe | The Australian: "WITH soaring mountains, colours that sing and fish that put on fashion parades in a jewelled lagoon, Lord Howe Island is a subtropical paradise out of a fairytale.
Take it on the authority of Sir David Attenborough, the supreme naturalist. "Lord Howe Island is so extraordinary it's almost unbelievable," he once wrote. "You can get to it within two hours from great cities, yet once there you can see five species of bird and over 50 plant species that live nowhere else on earth.""
