Tour was great but we found the very long beach drive after lunch tiring and the full sun in our face the whole time was very unpleasant. Mark, the guide, was always full of interesting information with a great sense of humour (110% effort!) but unfortunately often we could not hear what he was saying due to the speaker system he was using.

It was a fantastic day. So glad I went. A little more strenuous walking than I had expected but all in all, it was fine. Our hostess was great & explained much of the aboriginal history of the region. It did take a bit of prompting to get her to speak of the European history too. We were taken to a resort for lunch. The lunch was a disappointing but I really did not like the atmospherr of the resort. The staff were very nice & you couldn't fault them but, still there was an underlying feeling that we were an inconvenience to the management. Brooke (?) our guide did a great job of manoeuvring the vehicle through the sand & getting around other vehicles.
