My husband and I have always wanted to visit Fraser Island so jumped at the chance to join the Discovery Day trip due to a cancellation. Considering it was the Easter weekend, we were very lucky. Even though we had a very early start (5.45am due to our hotel being 35 minutes away from Noosa), the driver of our courtesy... More

On Monday April 14 I was set to go on the one day tour out to Fraser Island. All night rain has bucketed down and a tropical low was bringing in strong winds. This may have been a result of a TC Ita coming down the coast from North Queensland. I was concerned for my safety so made what I... More

If you are looking for a but of adventure, the Everglades Bar-b-canoe trip is for you. Firstly we enjoyed a river cruise with guided commentary before setting ashore for morning tea. Fresh laminatons and muffins with tea, coffee and biscuits were served in a picnic bush setting. Then we grabbed our canoes and headed off down the Everglades in a... More

Weather was perfect so the... More

Really enjoyed our two day trip to Fraser Island. Was really good value for money as you get quality vehicles, good food included and decent accommodation. Our tour guide Edward was also really great, very friendly and yet professional. The only downside is the amount of driving but this can't be helped due to the nature of the island and... More

The discovery vehicle looked good and was comfortable on even the roughest of... More

My dad and I went out with Discovery Tours to Fraser Island after being recommended it by our hotel. Our tour guide was Ed and he was superb. Yes you do spend a long time on the bus but the Lake itself is worth it. They provide you with a good lunch and plenty of refreshment stops throughout the day.... More

I had the best experience going to the Everglades with the daytour of Discovery Group Noosa. The guide had heaps of knowledge of Noosa, Everglades and the nature and wildlife. The food was very good, and the vision of the river just mindblowed me. The canoe trip is just perfect lenght aswell. I definately recommend this daytrip to everyone!

The tour started with a 10.15 meet at the Discovery office in Gympie Terrace, met by the delightful and enthusiastic Lian, who handed us over to the skipper for the day, Andy McGaughey. Apart from being an expert boat handler and guiding us on the day's outing, Andy is a high class photographer who, with his wife attending to their... More
