We did the day tour to the Noosa Everglades including the canooing. It was one of the best days of our Australian trip. The place is stunning, canooing on the mirroring waters in a secluded, peaceful and quiet atmosphere was just amazing. Our guide took care of the group well and told us lots of interesting anectodes and facts. Lunch... More

I did the two days one night tour in the Everglades. Our guide, Keith, was amazing: dry humor and vast knowledge. You could ask him anything and he would have an interesting fact about it. Our bbq and camp fire were great, I even had the opportunity to try roasted marshmallows. Delicious! The only thing I would criticize is the... More

We went on the morning tea and lunch cruise and were in a full boat along with an APT tour. Our boat driver Trevor was terrific with a huge amount of local knowledge both about the everglades wild life as well as the history around Noosa. He has a wicked dry sense of humor and made the tour a real... More

Having lived in Brisbane most of my life and spending at least one long weekend in Noosa every year since adult hood, I had never once ventured out in search of new experiences beyond Hastings Street, Noosaville and Sunshine Beach. Thanks to the Discovery Group we discovered the delights of the Noosa Everglades on what was a fabulous afternoon spent... More

We did two day one night self guided kayak. We were ungraded to cabins which was nice food was good. Actual canoe was only ok. Scenery was very repetitive a half day would have been enough. We were left to do a 5k walk without our guide through mosquito infested forestry. Completely pointless we were not informed of the mosquitos... More

Debated doing this, worried it would be too bumpy for our kids (4&8) but glad we did. Have the travel sickness tables before we started and at lunchtime and there were no issues. They provided booster seats which helped too. Our driver/guide was Cody who was local and very knowledgable although a bit too many scary dingo stories. We had... More

Our family of four went on the BBQ trip to the Everglades. We loved every minute, the trip up was beautiful with good interesting commentary from our two hosts. The scenery is magnificent. A brief morning tea allowed us a short walk into the bush and then on to Harry's Hutt. The BBQ lunch was lovely our Barrimundi was moist... More

We opted for the full day Noosa Everglades tour which left Noosaville at 9.45 am. The tour guide was very knowledgeable having lived in Noosa all his life. The cruise down the river and across the lakes was very scenic. Morning tea was provided followed by a slow cruise, with commentary, through the beautiful Everglades. Lunch was served at Harry's...

My parents and I went to Noosa in June this year and went on The Discovery Group's half day Noosa Everglades tour. We have been to Noosa before and had no idea about this hidden gem. The tour was fantastic and our tour guide Mark was very entertaining and informative. It was relaxing but also fun and afternoon tea was... More

It wasn't what I expected. I thought it is a fun day on the kanu going through the Everglades. It was a fun day through the Everglades in a boat with about one hour of kanuing.....so its a nice trip for families and lazy people but if you wanna try kanuing (like it wanted) it is not the right thing.
