Surf & Sand Safaris Pty Ltd
Surf & Sand Safaris, one of the longest running 4WD operations, run half and full-day tours departing from Rainbow Beach, QLD. Their tours take you past the Coloured Sands, Double Island Point Lighthouse, the Red Canyon, into Cooloola National Park and many more of the region's best spots. Their modern, air conditioned fleet of 4WDs and 11 seater buses guarantee comfort and small group sizes, and guests enjoy interpretation on the unique ecology of the areas visited, and the local modern, and Indigenous history.
The tour commentary places an emphasis the fact that the itineraries traverse two neighbouring Biosphere Reserves, the only location in the world where this occurs – the Noosa Biosphere Reserve and the Great Sandy Biosphere Reserve. These areas are internationally recognised as sites where human activity and natural systems co-exist in a sustainable manner, which reinforces the company's determination to operate with minimal impact through the principles of ecotourism.
