SURF & SAND SAFARIS
HALF DAY PRIVATE TOUR
Looking for more choice, or want to just take your time exploring this stunning slice of Queensland’s coastline? We also offer Private Tours that can extend past the half day tour, and the choices really are endless.
Set the pace of the tour and decide how long to stay at each of the stops. More time at the Lighthouse, longer in the rainforest, or time to just sit and soak up the view, all is possible during a Private Tour – even a helicopter ride or horse riding on the beach!
Travel in private in a 4×4 Wagon (up to 4 adults and 2 children), or 4×4 mini-bus (maximum 11 passengers), as well as the freedom to control the itinerary and benefit from one-on-one interaction with your tour guides.
Not sure what you would love to fit into a private adventure? Your tour guide can take you through all the options on the day dependent on weather, season and tide conditions, or we can take you through the possibilities when you place your booking.
DEPARTURE AND RETURN
LOCATIONS AND TIMES
Private Tours depart morning or afternoon from Rainbow Beach, depending upon tides and beach conditions. Pick up is from Rainbow Beach accommodation houses, or Surf Club car park at the end of the main street. Morning or afternoon tea and bottled water is provided.
This world famous attraction has more than 40 different shades of colour. The tour includes a demonstration of the traditional techniques used by the Aboriginal people (with respect to the Gubbi Gubbi people) to create artwork and decorate boomerangs.
Double Island Point Lighthouse offers breathtaking 360-degree views across the Pacific Ocean and scenic surrounds of the Great Sandy National Park. It is here we often spot pods of dolphins, turtles, sharks, manta rays and the majestic Humpback Whales (season is June-October). We are the only Rainbow Beach operator with gate access to drive to the lighthouse, allowing you to see a parts of this popular spot otherwise missed.
A beautiful and unique rainforest drive through sand dunes.
This area boasts a saltwater lagoon with some of the most scenic landscapes in Australia. Here we stop for a refreshing break where you can swim in the protected waters of the bay, or body surf on the longest right hand breaks in Australia all year round.
