Discover the local Aboriginal ways here at the Great Sandy Straits Marina in Urangan, Queensland! Along with the friendly and relaxed company of your Butchulla guide, witness the spectacular sunset on the horizon and learn of the Butchulla culture!

Enjoy cruising the magnificent Great Sandy Straits aboard the Milbi (Butchulla word for “sea turtle”), while indulging in a fresh selection of local king prawns, canapes, and a glass of champagne. In this splendid sunset cruise, you’ll have the iconic Urangan Pier as your backdrop.

Hear about the legendary tales of the Butchulla people of K’Gari (Fraser Islands) and the surrounding area. You’ll also discover the Butchulla names and meanings of notable local landmarks before stepping ashore on Weenandan (Round Island). Walk in the footsteps of the Butchulla people as the sun sinks beneath the horizon. Experience their unique coastal lifestyle, and learn their traditional fishing methods and food gathering techniques. All of these while listening to the enchanting sounds of the didgeridoo! Aside from these activities, you can also view the marine life and the coral reef through Milbi’s beautifully lit moon pool. However, this will depend on tidal conditions. This is surely an experience you don’t want to miss!

Gently cruise back to the harbour under a dazzling view of the stars, as you relax with the music.
