Ned’s Beach is one of Lord Howe’s most postcard-perfect beaches, with a stretch of white sand for walking, a reef with access channels perfect for snorkelling and a boat house stocked with snorkelling gear and body boards which are available for hire on an honesty system.

Ned’s is also famous for the fish that swim right up into the shallows to be fed. It’s always a thrill for visitors as well as locals to buy a dollar bag of sustainable fish food from the boat house and wade in knee deep to feed the fish. There’s an instant frenzy in the water as mullet, wrasse, garfish, silver-drummer, spangled-emperor and kingfish vie for their share.
