Ascent Trip Report

Our first full day on Lord Howe Island, we did a loop of the 'central walks', with the hike up Transit Hill effectively starting near Blinky Beach, ascending quickly through rainforest before reaching the lookout platform at the top. After this, we descended by the north side of the hill, continuing on our loop past Government House.
