My family and I enjoyed the full day tour on the LARC with Neil and David. The boys provide a wonderfully informative tour as you travel along the beach and through the creeks. Sand boarding was fantastic and we all took on the big hill and got wet! Stuart and Dudley at the Bustard Head Lighthouse shared their experiences with... More

My 3 year old son and I went on our first LARC tour at the end of February and we were back again with the whole family a few weeks later! We love it! Everyone involved with this company has been warm and friendly and the drivers/guides are hilarious. I totally recommend a LARC tour.

Don't bother. If you are planning on attempting to use this "attraction", please BYO friends as they do not conduct the trip without a minimum quota. Allegedly there were not enough people for the sunset tour ( though the other people in our accomodation trying to book were given a different story ). They will try and talk you into... More

We are sorry you feel that way about our business, especially as you have not experienced a tour. Sadly in February and March every year our destination has less visitors than most other months and it is sometimes difficult to achieve a minimum number of guests and confirm all the scheduled tours. This information is printed on our brochures and... More

We took the 1 hour sunset tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our driver gave an excellent commentary and also had a great sense of humour. tt was a great introduction to the area. The seats were a bit hard so I am not sure whether I would have been comfortable on the full day trip. Fully recommend this trip.

What a fabulous day, informative, fun and safe, many thanks to Neil and the crew, especially Matt, a most skillful L.A.R.C. driver, would highly recomend the full day tour, fell in love with the lighthouse.

Not really knowing what to expect it was a really amazing tour. The guide kept things humorous while still demonstrating his abundant knowledge of the local area and wildlife. I'll definitely be back for the day tour up to the Bustard Head lighthouse. A truly interesting and fun experience in a beautiful piece of the Queensland coast.

We went on an afternoon tour, sadly sunset was all booked out. The short tour was meant as a taster for the full day tour, which we didn't have time for. Neil was an excellent tour guide from the very beginning. He skilfully placed kids at the front and a rowdy crowd (who bought their own eskies, which I'd thought... More

Had a great day on the LARC recently. Staff were fun and informative and the whole day was well organised. Really enjoyed the light house tour and sand boarding. Be sure to take water and sunglasses and don't leave your gear on the floor - it will get wet! Seating is a little bit cramped but the back seat was... More
