Thank for you taking the time to write this review :) The LARC! is the perfect way to access Queensland's only open, operating Lighthouse at the historic island of Bustard Head. Such a unique vessel with the ability to drive as a 4WD and a boat in one. Being a cooler winter's day, I am sure the guests on board... More

We had a fabulous time on the afternoon LARC trip with Blake. A highlight was seeing dolphins swimming beside us and watching the sun set. Blake was an excellent host/skipper - full of information and lots of fun. Next time we'll go on the full day tour.

Decided to go on the hour tour. Weather was perfect. Jason our tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Had us all having a good laugh. When things can be very expensive this was priced really well for singles, couples and families. A must do at 1770 if for one hour or a full day of sliding down sand hills,... More

While 1770 is a beautiful and idyllic little village, there is not a real lot to do. To experience a little of the area, I booked the afternoon cruise which takes just an hour.

We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon tour with Blake as driver / guide. We would have done the full day tour but it departs early and only on certain days. Book early so you can take the tour of your choice.
