Imagine spending a day discovering paradise…..
…..Let us take you on a journey into history over vast sandy beaches and crystal clear waters where you can experience the same magnificent beauty that greeted Lieutenant James Cook when he stepped ashore here more than two centuries ago. The LARC! travels around Bustard Bay, across 4 tidal creeks and then rests on the Northern tip of Middle Island for morning tea of cakes, cookies and fresh fruit.
The LARC! then treks across Jenny Lind Creek and begins the scenic 4WD journey up Bustard Headland to the Bustard Head Light-station – Queensland’s first coastal lighthouse and the ONLY operating lighthouse that the public are able access inside! Standing 16 metres tall, you will have a 360deg view of the pristine coastline whilst marvelling at the lighthouse’s craftsmanship. At the light-station, guests hear of the tales of triumph and tragedy as early settlers and light-keepers tried to tame this remote wilderness! We also offer an interpretative tour through the restored head light-keepers cottage and the little cemetery, where guests will soon learn why the majestic station was dubbed the "Lighthouse of Tragedy’’.
Passengers then return to the LARC! and enjoy the panoramic view of the Bay as they journey down the hill to the picnic area on the southern end of Bustard Head. There they relax with a smorgasbord of cut sandwiches, cold drinks, billy tea & coffee. Guests can explore the coastal rainforest walk to the foreshore at Jenny Lind Estuary. After lunch the LARC! departs for sand boarding down towering 35m sand dunes at Middle Island …..if you want to, you can skim out across the water or stop on the sand flat!
