This was an excellent day out - into the Everglades with opportunities to kayak on the river if you wished. Andy the guide was first class and the tour also contained a stop for morning tea/coffee and a BBQ. If you want to get away from the crowds on the beach and see a bit of the bush around Noosa...

I had an amazing time paddling in the Noosa Everglades. Loved the fact that it was self guided. But bring some snacks with you, you will enjoy that!

This day trip from Noosa to the Noosa Everglades (one of only two everglades in the world!) is a must do in Noosa. The launch leaves the Discovery jetty in Gympie Terrace and takes you to the Everglades Information Centre (about 40-45 minute launch ride). Those that want to then transfer to the canoes and paddle through the mirror-like everglades... More

We have been to Noosa several times over the years and visited the National park, beaches and restaurants, but had never been to the Everglades - what a wonderful surprise. We were picked up from our hotel at the appointed time. Our captain (sorry, forget his name) was born and bred in the area and had countless stories and information... More

This was a fabulous day out - our guide Trevor was a fount of knowledge and kept us entertained the entire day - from Goanna's up your trousers to the more mundane topics of Makepeace Island. I like photography and the slow cruise up the Everglades to Harry's Hut was a photographers paradise. Other more intrepid tourists made their way... More

Staying with a friend in Coolum, I decided to get out of town to explore mid week - Fraser Island was the best decision yet! The pick up, overall tour and general ambiance was AMAZING!! A must do. Get Brock as your tour guide and you'll have the best time! No rush, all fun- just the best two day trip... More

If you are looking for something different to do, check out the Noosa Everglades BBQ/Canoe cruise! Our skipper Trevor guided us up the Noosa river deep into the Cooloola National park, providing plenty of interesting commentary along the way. There was time to admire the beauty of the surrounding forest and birdlife as we meandered up the narrow waterways of... More

We did the 2 day 1 night Fraser Island tour in October and it was brilliant. Our driver and guide Brock was great, he was knowledgable, helpful and kept us entertained on the long drives. All the food included was really good, everything needed was provided and our accommodation in Happy Valley was spacious and clean. We did all the... More
