Kelly visits Lord Howe Island

19:30 AEST Thu Nov 15 2012
There are very few places in the world with no high-rise, mobile phone coverage or ATMs. The most popular mode of transport is bicycle and the speed limit for cars is 25kph. Just 400 tourists are allowed at any one time. Sound too good to be true? Well, Kelly found all that and more on Lord Howe Island, 600 kilometres east of Sydney, and knew immediately why it became a World Heritage Site in 1982. Just 10 kilometres long and 2 kilometres wide, it’s a place of true beauty and biodiversity with a unique range of wildlife.
