I was with a group from Bundaberg Coach Tours who enjoyed an excellent day trip on the Larc from 1770 to Bustard Heads Lighthouse. The weather was perfect and we saw lots of birds along the beach and stingrays swimming in the shallow waters. Crossing the creeks were very exciting, but the highlight of the day was the time spent... More

The lark has slow top speed across land, but an impressive amount of power during the up hill climb, it was the favorite part of my trip. I wasn't happy with the microphone/speaker system, it was crackly and we couldn't hear the person speaking clearly, a gentleman in front of me had to cover his heading aids at one point.
