Important Information

* Time, Tides, and Weather Permitting
Sunset Safaris makes every effort to include ALL activities and destinations listed on our Great Barrier Reef holiday packages. However due to the extreme nature of Fraser Island, Rainbow Beach, and the Agnes Water Coastline, and weather unpredictability in general, some activities are subject to tide, time, and weather factors, and Sunset Safaris cannot be held liable due to these factors.

PAYMENT (examples based on Brisbane Adult Price)
Your Great Barrier Reef Package Tour payment is broken up into 2 components; your Sunset Safaris ticket price component, and your Fraser Island - National Park & Ferry Fees, and Boat Access & Reef Tax component ($245). The Fraser Island - National Park & Ferry Fees, and Boat Access & Reef Tax component of $245 must be paid in CASH to driver upon departure, while the boarding pass can be purchased HERE on this web site.

CANCELLATION POLICY DUE TO STONG WINDS

Occasionally strong winds will cause the cancellation of the boat that takes us to the Great Barrier Reef. Sunset Safaris will always endeavour to cancel or postpone the excursion to the Town of 1770 before time of departure if winds are too strong.
However, due to the unpredictability of winds, we may arrive at the Town of 1770, and be told by the boat company that the trip has been cancelled. In the uncommon event that this occurs, Sunset Safaris will refund the total sum of the purchase price of the Boat ticket and reef tax ($185). A range of other activities such as snorkelling and diving in sheltered waters, sea kayaking, surfing, amphibious vehicle rides, and much more may be arranged by Sunset Safaris Staff at 1770, and these optional activities are then payable by the customer.
