We went on the larc tour today to Bustard Head, and we enjoyed every bit of it. The day flew by, with lots of history, natural information, sand boarding, the renovated lighthouse tour and a yummy lunch. Blake, skipper Neil and young Asher were great guides and better company. I hadn't done this tour in quite a number of years... More

Had a great day out with the family on the Sir Joseph Banks with skipper Neil and crew Asher and Harry. Great to travel via this means to see sights like the lighthouse and the kids loved the sand surfing. Neil kept us entertained with his knowledge of the local stories and wildlife esp the birds although I think he... More

Went on the LARC afternoon tour with my little cousin who found the trip so enjoyable she wanted to go on it again the following afternoon. Our very informative guide Blake told us lots of interesting eco-facts about the beach, the local wildlife and cultural heritage of the area. And the best part of course is SPLASHDOWN off the dunes... More

The kind lady at the info centre suggested we jump on the Larc tour the afternoon we arrived at Agnes 1770 to give us a bit of history about the area and to see what is around and where we would be best to take our SUP Boards. The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and funny. Good price and... More

Really good tour which I enjoyed very much. I think the highlight for me was the sand boarding. Could have done that all day. Other highlight is definitely the guides Tarni and Blake. Both were very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna which I loved. I personally would have loved another swimming spot stop to maybe break the longish drives... More
