A long day trip with an early start, but well worth it. Traveling along miles of sandy beaches in huge purpose built 4x4 vehicle, amazing experience whizzing along the sand. Then up through the sandy tracks of Fraser Island itself, passing through rainforest and stopping to swim in lake McKenzie (optional, but beautiful). Great BBQ lunch too. Really interesting commentary... More

This was my second trip with Discovery on the Everglades (my first being the 3 day self guided trip) this time doing the B-B-Canoe day trip. Pick up was great, on time and with a friendly driver. The boat we went out there on was very clean and comfy and the tour guide was excellent with an enormous amount of... More

The Everglades Discovery Cruise heads from Noosaville up into the headwaters of the Noosa River through the Noosa National Park. Interesting vegetation, lots of birds and beautiful reflections in the still, dark tannin-stained waters. The boat is comfortable, the commentary is knowledgeable and the morning tea and BBQ lunch (onshore) are excellent. Those who are feeling more energetic have the... More

I recently went on the canoe-BBQ tour up the Noosa Everglades. It was really a fantastic day. Our guide Trevor was a veteran, he had 30+ years of experience and a lifetime of local knowledge having grown up in the area. He was very informative in a laid-back manner which suited the serenity of the location to-the-tee; he'd reel off... More

I recently returned from the Noosa Everglades 2 night / 3 day self guided tour which I booked through Noosa Everglades Discovery. This seemed like excellent value as it was only a little bit more expensive than the 1 day bar-b-canoe option which they offered. The overall experience of the Everglades was excellent and this is a stunning area with... More

Worst Tour you can do as a day Tour, you don't get what you pay for. Every other Tour starting in Hervey Bay or Rainbow Beach shows you much more of the Island and seems to have more motivated guides.

We went on the one-day Fraser Island tour with our tour guide Edward a couple of days ago. We travelled with our 5 month old, 4 year old and 10 year. This tour was great value and packed a lot into 1 day. Edward was an extremely knowledgeable guide and was entertaining and a great host. He really made the... More

From the moment we jumped on board with our complimentary bottle of water we were impressed with the staff and comfy boat.
