The best tour to see the bustard bay with sandboarding and visiting the Bustard Lighthouse. We could see the bustard turkeies at the picnic area. Good for family tour.

Great operators funny guys but $500 for 2 adults and 2 children to visit a light house and slide down some sand dunes is a bit to much they provide sandwiches for lunch my wife thought for $500 we were going to get a cooked lunch but no. over all experience was good but not great and not worth the...

Thank you for your comments and for joining our tour. Unfortunately operating 48 year old machinery does take quite a lot of maintenance and therefore expense. The prices at 1770 LARC! Tours are driven by our expenses and as we are in an emerging tourism desintaiton we could not afford to overprice our products. The annual insurance we pay is... More

The Tour was very good and tour guides were excellent. As we travelled with small children it would have been better if we could have spent more time sand boarding. This was excellent and extremely enjoyable. The Bustard Head lighthouse was restored to an excellent standard and you could feel the love and pride of the volunteers. The day was... More

Did the "Sunset Tour"and had a lot of fun, this is definitely value for money, very entertaining and really enjoyed the banter of our driver/skipper. The "Larc's" are basic , haven't changed for over 40 yrs and just shows when something is designed and built to stand the test of time, it's still great fun today. Would do this again... More

We had a wonderful day on the full day Paradise tour. The staff were engaging and informative. If you are a photographer there is plenty of bird life and scenery worth your time. The Bustard Bay lighthouse tour was fascinating. Travelling on the LARC was an adventure in itself but thoroughly enjoyable. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea were plentiful.... More
