About Mount Lidgbird

The smaller of Lord Howe’s two imposing peaks, Mount Lidgbird is named after the naval officer who first sighted the Island in 1788. The trek to the 777-metre summit is arduous, but not as tough as the climb to Mount Gower. Half way up the mountain is Goat House Cave, once used as a shelter for 19th century Kentia palm gatherers. Nowadays, you’re likely to see the nest of the loveable masked White Boobies, while scores of red-tailed tropicbirds perform their aerial acrobatics near the summit.
