ABOUT

Ocean View apartments are an original Lord Howe Island business started more than 100 years ago and are proudly operated by 5th & 6th generation descendants of T.B. & Mary Wilson, who settled on Lord Howe Island in 1876. Ocean View is ideally situated off the main road and is close to many island facilities including restaurants, cafés, general stores, bike hire and the post office. Just 100 metres away you will find the only jetty on the island, lagoon beach for a quiet swim, Old Settlement & Ned’s Beach for great snorkelling & fish feeding. A short climb up the back paddock and you can capture amazing panoramic views of the island & lagoon.
