Full description
Join the only cultural tour on the Fraser Coast. With your local Butchulla guide onboard, obtain first hand knowledge of the history, hunting and gathering techniques. 

Your ecotour begins at 10:30am departing from the Great Sandy Straits Marina onboard a 10 metre glass bottom vessel. Travel through the spectacular waterways of the Great Sandy Marine Park, with stops at Round Island and Big Woody Island and visit coral reefs for snorkelling and viewing through the glass panels.

Lunch, tropical fruit platter, water, tea and coffee are all included in your tour. Be intrigued by the history spanning thousands of years, through the eyes of a local aboriginal guide, a direct descendant from the Butchulla tribe - the custodians of K'Gari. Take a walk in the Butchulla footsteps and discover the deep connection the aboriginal people share with the land and sea.
