Imagine taking a tour of the Australian Coastline, crossing four tide creeks, and then four wheel driving it up a steep climb to visit an historic lighthouse—all without even changing vehicles. There’s only one way to do it and that is in the big pink amphibious boat with wheels, called a LARC. The 1770 LARC Tour is like no other adventure you’ve ever been on.
Your tour will begin your tour in the Town of 1770, Agnes Water on the Queensland Coast of Australia. Enjoy morning tea as you take in the breath taking scenery. Then get ready to explore, traveling over land and sea. Travel along the coastline of Eurimbula National Park. Learn about the abundant wildlife and history of Bustard Bay. Cross four tidal creeks and you’ll tour the head light keeper’s cottage at the historic Bustard Head Lightstation and the light-station graveyard. Watch kangaroos grazing and dophins jumping from the water.
After lunch learn about Australian wildlife and some of its history. Then finish the day by sand-boarding down the dunes of Middle Island. Climb one of the 30 meter high dunes and take in the expansive view, then grab a board and hold on tight as you slide down the face of the hill.
For a more relaxing tour, book a one-hour afternoon cruise. Take a ride as the sun begins to set and watch as the landscape experiences a change of moods. Suddenly there’s a peaceful solitude in the tropical paradise. A sense of calm and beauty that you can’t help but take in yourself as you witness the magic of Round Hill Creek and Eurimbula National Park, its wildlife and the views it offers of Round Hill Head and the coastline.
Whether you take a day run or an early evening tour be sure to take in some swimming and beachcombing.
