We went to the one day tour in the everglades and it was amazing! It's important to take repellent ! Everglades are absolutely wonderful and with canoe it's even better. Don't need to be sporty, just relax and enjoy ! BBQ was also really really good ! The guide was really friendly and funny ! :)

I am a Noosa local and had never taken the trip up to the Everglades, so took the opportunity when hosting an interstate guest. Wow what a fantastic trip through the Noosa lakes and up into the Everglades ending at Harry's Hut. The scenery was magnificent and the birdlife just wonderful. Our boat captain and guide was fun and very... More

This tour has it all!! A little bit of history, food, exercise (if you want), drink and beautiful scenery. Our tour guide, Trevor, was absolutely amazing. He was very knowledgeable about the Everglades and could answer any question posed to him. The Everglades themselves was a beautiful sight to see. I was part of the group that did the canoeing...

We recently visited Noosa and can highly recommend both the Everglades (6 hour cruise) and the Fraser Island Day Tour with The Discovery Group. We were very well looked after, pick up by shuttle bus from our hotel in Noosa. The Everglades is a beautiful not to be missed stretch of the Noosa River. We had perfect sunny weather and... More

My Dad and I were travelling the East Coast and Fraser Island was something we were particularly looking forward to. I'm 26 and I was with my dad so we weren't doing a tag along tour for sure. We decided on the two day Fraser Island tour with the overnight stay. It was simply perfect. We saw everything the Island... More

Wow, an amazing 2 day tour to Fraser Island, had an awesome guide named Scott who made the trip very pleasant with his calm demeanour, enthusiasm and wide knowledge of Fraser and surrounds. The accommodation was lovely, had the best sleep ever, very comfy beds, food was very simple and tasty. Would highly recommend this tour. Thanks Discovery Carolyn

Our driver / tour guide Ed was extremely knowledgeable and more than happy to answer any questions and share his love of the area. Absolutely loved the entire day from the pick-up at 6.15am to the drop off at 5pm - wonderful morning tea and lunch. Swimming at Lake McKenzie and absolute must. Fascinated by the walk through the rainforest... More
