Great day out, knowledgeable driver, Lake Mackenzie is epic.

Great day, really knowledgeable driver described different things about the island. Lunch was good and plenty of restroom stops. Lake Mackenzie is awesome, could do with a whole day just enjoying that. Definitely recommend this trip to anyone. Perfect for all ages.

Great tour of the K'gari Island, the guide was very cultivated and shared his knowledge

Great tour of the K'gari Island, I recommend 2 days on the island, one is not enough, not a lot of vegan options in the buffet lunch. I recommend 2 days on the island, one is not enough, great guide, too many stops in the resort, I prefer to stay on the beach.
