Your knowledgeable and passionate guide will take you through these 2 days of adventure, providing you with lots of fascinating information about the island and it’s history. Travel along the beach in a custom designed air conditioned 4 wheel drive to the most beautiful and natural spots.
You’ll start your journey at Central Station, a former logging station, before taking a stroll along the Wanggoolba Creek boardwalk and through Pine Valley to discover extraordinary rainforest growing out of sand.
