Leanda Lei was established in 1954 by Roy and Daphne Wilson as the first purpose built guest house on Lord Howe Island and was a “honeymooner’s haven”.
In 1974 the accommodation was converted to self contained apartments, allowing for more freedom of choice regarding dining options (there are over 8 restaurants on the island catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner).
All units have recently been renovated and refurbished.

Come and join us on our “MV Lulawai”, purpose built on the Island for the late Roy Wilson in 1969.
This beautiful, traditional vessel was purposely designed and built for the Island’s waters and to provide a service for Around Island Cruises.
Our two hour circumnavigation of the Island enables passengers to relax and enjoy the breath taking views all around Lord Howe Island and also view the spectacular image of Ball’s Pyramid looming in the distance.
