Expedition to Balls Pyramid

Twenty-three kilometres to the south of Lord Howe Island is a spectacular 550-metre spearhead of grey basalt that seemingly explodes from the ocean. The world’s largest sea stack is home to extraordinary birdlife and the waters surrounding Balls Pyramid are teeming with marine life. The towering spearhead also supports the last known wild population of the world's rarest insect (the Lord Howe Island Phasmid). A cruise to Balls Pyramid is astonishing. For experienced divers, Balls is an unparalleled adventure.
