For a trip you will never forget, jump aboard the pink LARC, an amphibious craft that will take you for a ride across deserted sandy beaches and pristine estuaries as you make your way to the isolated Bustard Head Lighthouse located within Eurimbula National Park. You'll hear the tales of tragedy and triumph as early white settlers and lighthouse keepers struggled to tame this remote wilderness. You will see some of the prolific wildlife that inhabits the area and you will gasp in awe at the spectacular panoramic view from the historic Bustard Head Lighthouse.
The LARC! climbs out of the water and up to Queensland's first coastal light - Bustard Head. Enjoy a guided tour through the light keepers cottages, which have been restored and turned into a museum. And on the way home, you can experience the thrill of sand boarding down the towering dunes of Middle Island. The LARC's (Lighter Amphibious Resupply Cargo Vessels) are named in honour of Sir Joseph Banks and Dr Daniel Carl Solander, the two eminent botanists who accompanied Lieutenant James Cook aboard the Endeavour on their voyage of discovery. Day Trip includes morning tea, lunch and an Aussie Billy tea.Check Availablity and Rates
