I think it's worth seeing. It's also somewhat on your way too, but not really on the way to anywhere else so you probably won't visit another time or make a special trip there.
I've been lucky enough to go there several times in the past and really enjoyed it.
Did a Lord Howe Island race
in the early 90s and due to the Bundy and Cokes I donít remember much.
We considered stopping there on our way to Australia
but the hoops to jump through and cost are both prohibitive for a maximum 3 day stay.
Also, slightly further north is a better route
when heading for Queensland
. Hence my question about Middleton and Elizabeth Reefs.
Middleton seems like a nice way to break up the passage
, similar I suppose to Minerva Reefs when heading for Tonga
