SURF & SAND SAFARIS
Surf & Sand Safaris is a family-owned and run business established in 1973. It is one of the longest operating 4WD tour companies in Queensland, and is the only Rainbow Beach operator who is Advanced Eco Certified, with direct and extended vehicle access to protected Double Island Point Lighthouse.
Glenn and Annette Wiggins are the family behind the tour vehicles, and believe in offering intimate tours that educate and amaze guests. Our modern fleet of air-conditioned 4WD wagons and 11-seater 4WD buses offer a personalised experience, with opportunities to explore, swim, relax and experience the stunning locations.
Our local guides enhance the depth of this once in a lifetime experience thanks to their knowledge, and love of the natural beauty of the region. We believe our guides are the best in the business. They are passionate, funny, informative, and easy-going. Their knowledge of every facet of this tour has been developed over hundreds of hours of experience, and guests are free to ask questions and interact with our then as they love sharing stories about this special part of Queensland.
Our half-day tour gives a taste of the unique and stunning part of Queensland, starting at Rainbow Beach which is famous for its coloured sands, which were once used by the Gubbi Gubbi people for their artwork and boomerang decoration. It is one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet and is not to be missed.
From there, the tour takes in the dramatic coastline, an idyllic National Park, freshwater picnic area, and the protected Double Island Point and lighthouse. Surf & Sand Safaris are Advanced Eco Certified and proudly associated with the Destination Gympie Region.
If you are staying on the Sunshine Coast, we also conduct one-day tours from Noosa through our partner tour provider, Great Beach Drive Tours. The Great Beach Drive 4WD Tours offers full day and overnight tours, and you can find more information on their website.
