1770 LARC! Tours - Paradise Day Tour - Town of 1770

Take a journey into history along the sandy beaches and crystal clear waters of Agnes Water!

Take a journey through time and experience the same beauty Lieutenant James Cook did as he stepped ashore here over two centuries ago

With a national park to the left, and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park to the right, we will travel along Bustard Bay making 3 tidal crossings before taking a rest on the northern tip of Middle Island for morning tea

Climb the steps of the lighthouse and hear tales of the triumph and turmoil as the early settlers tried to tame the remote wilderness

Returning to the LARC we make our way back down the headland and across to Jenny Lind Creek to a picturesque picnic area for a picnic lunch, cold drinks and billy tea or coffee brewed over an open fire

Then we are off to a towering 35 meter sand dune for some sandboarding! Our guide will give you a quick lesson and then set you free! You are more than welcome to go for a swim, chill out or even go for a fish if you wish

9am departure, returning by 4pm

Amazing Coast Driving Experience

Rare glimpse into history along spectacular scenery, exciting 4w driving, hold your breath. Its amazing tour to the light house. I loved the lunch stop! Negative side Lot of time spent sitting, driving. Not much time for the highlight sand boarding into the ocean. Too many children, family groups, hard to get a go so get in quick.

Paradise Tour - LarcTastic

Awesome tour with exceptionally beautiful views. Very informative and knowledgeable. If you visit 1770 or Agnes Water and you don’t do this tour, you are certainly missing out on some of the most pristine beaches, panoramic views and history in Queensland. Can certainly see why it is suitably named ‘Paradise Tour’

A bit of a Larc

The tour was excellent Sandy & Macca were very interesting & informative a great comic duo also, morning tea & lunch was basic but plentiful & enjoyable what you would expect from this type of tour, my husband is an avid Lighthouse lover so being able to go in was icing on the cake.

Hello Denise Thank you for coming along to experience the full day LARC! Paradise Tour with our amazing duo skipper Macka and tour guide Sammy. I am sure you and your husband especially enjoyed being able to enter inside Queensland's only operating lighthouse open to the public. The views from the balcony are just stunning aren't they? We are really glad you enjoyed this tour and thank you for recommending our tour. Kind Regards The LARC! Team
