We selected the half day tour and we were really happy with our decision. We left the jetty at Noosaville at 12.30pm and we were due back at 4.30pm. The weather was great and there were very few canoes or boats in the Everglades so the water was like a mirror reflecting everything on the banks. The whole area was... More

1 day in Fraser Island is not worthy, You spend all the day in the car with bad visibility as it has no big windows. It stops a few minutes at a few locations where many other buses also stop so it is very crowded. Don't expect to see any animals at all, just a lost Dingo very far somewhere... More

Unfortunately we came away from this tour to the Noosa Everglades very disappointed. The boat used is vey old and needs to be refurbished. The seats were uncomfortable and at high speeds was bouncy. No good for anyone who is pregnant or does not like speed boating. The tour guide was good and provided a good understanding of the area.... More

Fantastic trip from start to finish, we loved the ease of heading off from Noosaville and being transported into the tranquility of the everglades. The BBQ was superb and the guide too. Would recommend this trip to everyone.

I have done 2 everglades tours, one was a christmas party. I thoroughly enjoyed both trips, its a long day out but well worth it, the staff are very helpful and personable. If you are planning a trip to Noosa please do this tour.

Our day trip to Fraser was fantastic - the journey was fun, lake Mckenzie was stunning and the rainforest walk was spectacular, but mostly, we will remember our wonderful tour guide Chops!! Not only is he hilarious and heaps of fun, he has a genuine passion for learning about the local flora and fauna, history and facts and clearly enjoys... More

I have done the Everglades tour with The Discovery Group and I absolutely loved it! Our guide Heinie knew so much about the Everglades and wanted to share as much as possible with us. After cruising around on the boat and having our morning tea it was time to canoe! This was around an hour which was a perfect amount... More
