This tour was nice, but not spectacular. If you're dying to see the Noosa Everglades, or even just curious, it's a good tour. I did the full day Bar-B-Canoe tour for $129, which included morning tea, cookies, and a BBQ lunch (steak, fish, or veg option). The guide includes a boat up the Noosa River, across a couple lakes to... More

A long day but well worth the experience. Driving along Rainbow beach seeing the coloured sands and swimming in Lake Mackensie were the highlights. Dave our guide was excellent and kept us informed throughout and to complete the day we saw a dingo on the beach on our way home!

A brilliant day spent on the Everglades with Will our driver, a very knowledgeable and friendly guy. Morning tea, coffee and a barbecue lunch included in tour. The chance to go swimming at lunch time was great. I can highly recommend this tour.

Very good commentary, refreshment stop and lunch. Facilities were excellent. The boat was large and comfortable and toilets were at the 2 locations we stopped. limited wildlife but overall not...

We had two trips with the Discovery Group. Both we fantastic days and the tour guides were very knowledgable and fun to be around. The food and drink provided was great and they always take into consideration "comfort breaks" and the customer service was excellent. Well done guys!

The 'bus' was a beefed up, air-conditioned 4x4 truck with reclined seats which we joined at 6:30am! Our guide, Edward, was very communicative and we sped off, over 40 Mile Beach, which was a highway. Edward was keen to press on because there was a restriction further up the beach where the tide might force us to detour over a... More

Absolutely worth doing. We loved our guide "Heiniken" whose special knack was telling a good story. It was so relaxing to be picked up at our hotel and dropped off too - which left us nothing to worry about. The boat was comfortable - we were about 25 pax. It was a pleasant cruise up the river and through a... More
