Lord Howe Island and COVID-19

The Covid19 Pandemic

Yes, I refer to the current COVID-19 pandemic! Our once carefree happy lifestyle working & living on Lord Howe Island has been completely turned upside down.

Like everybody, we wish it would all just go away. It appears that unless we learn to minimize the risk of transmission, we will be stuck in this state of limbo until a vaccine is available.

Now that would be something everybody could really look forward too!

Life Goes On

In the meantime, here at Reef N Beyond Eco Tours we have prepared for the “new norm”

We have now introduced our “Covid19 Safety Plan”! We have introduced numerous measures to mitigate & minimize risk Covid19 infection to our staff, guests & broader community. Rest assured we are looking after your safety while maintaining the enjoyment factor on our tours.

How can you help? Well first of all,
