We had a really enjoyable afternoon. With limited time we weren't able to fit in a kayaking trip, but this enabled us to see and appreciate a bit more of beautiful Noosa. Ben gave a very interesting commentary and laid out a savoury spread with biscuits, cheese,dips and sparkling wine, followed by tea and cake. The boat ride was slightly... More

See a different perspective of the Noosa river system and into the Everglades, the river cruise across a couple of lakes and then into the slow tranquil waters of the Everglades. Lots of bird life and no snappy things as in Florida also no noisy airboats. You can canoe part of the journey for about an hour or just sit... More

We took the one day Fraser Island tour. Started very early with great expectations from previous reviews. Great driving along the vast beaches. The ferry looked a little scary with these huge trucks boarding. Sadly wildlife not out for us though this is winter. Luckily had money with us for a beer and coke at lunchtime as we don't like...

A friend and I (~ 20 years) did the Everglades day tour with Discovery and we had an amazing time. Trevor was our skipper and he knew so many facts about the everglades and Noosa which was interesting to listen to. We started the trip with a river cruise through lakes and the wetlands of Noosa until we reached our... More

We did this tour yesterday with Trevor as skipper, from mid-morning to late afternoon return. Our flat bottomed boat with powerful engines quickly left the builtup areas and proceeded via shady river and large shallow lake crossings to the Upper Noosa River. We had tasty cakes for morning tea before heading further up to Harry's Hut for an even more... More

What a blast we had with our guide Stu. Terrific BBQ lunch, great beach driving and the highlight seeing dingos on the beach! Highly recommend.

We did the Everglades tour with this group! Amazing experience! Andy was our skipper, he is very knowledgeable and funny. Was a great tour. Took the whole day but well worth the money. The canoe part of the trip was amazing - although a bit windy that day it was still an easy paddle and lots of fun to see... More

We recently did both the Everglades tour with Andy and the two day tour of Fraser Island with Drew and both trips were fantastic. We were a family of 5 including an 82 year old and 6 year old and we had a great time. Both tour guides were great, the food was great, the scenery was great and the... More

Three weeks ago we went on a two-day tour to Fraser Island with the Discovery group. We where picked up in Noosa. It was a lifetime experience for us. Our tour guide Ed was great! He knew so much about Fraser. The truck was nice to ride in. The food was really good, so was the accommodation. If you want... More
