Serenity and scenery supreme

Fab tour, amazing guides, sensational scenery, fabulous canoeing option and can I say the food was superb. What a magical experience at such a reasonable price.

Fantastic experience

We had a fantastic experience on the Noosa Everglades Eco Lunch Wilderness Cruise! It was a beautiful, sunny day. The Everglades are spectacular. Our toddler loved spotting the birds. The bus was easy, picked us up and dropped us straight at our accommodation. All staff were helpful and knowledgeable, we learnt a lot about the Everglades and history on the wider Noosa area. The lunch was delicious. One of our favourite days of our trip. Would highly recommend!

Great Day Out

Thoroughly enjoyed this well organised and thought out tour. Was informative and our tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting with a little humour thrown in. The tour ran smoothly as advertised our morning tea and lunch was excellent. I highly recommend

Magic experience

Totally recomend doing this tour. Everything was perfect. Our tour guide and skipper Trevor has so much knowledge of the area and could answer any questions asked of him. He told some interesting stories of past history. The Everglades are just beautiful and I think it is something that anyone visiting the Noosa area should do. A very unique experience. The morning tea and our Barbecue lunch made for a wonderful day. Don't just think about it....do it!

Fun day

I had a great day doing the Everglades Eco Safari. The everglades are beautiful and serene. This is a great opportunity to visit a unique ecosystem. I did see some birds and a lace monitor. There wasn't a huge amount of wildlife around. Could hear birds but as usual couldn't see them. The staff that lead the tour, Robyn our hostess who welcomed us and organised our lanyards for lunch and took us to the boat, and collected us again was lovely. Mick and Paddy were great. If you've ever thought of doing this tour, just go. Seeing the Melaleuca trees, banksias and grasses lining the waterways, and their reflections was very neat. Well worth the time
