Serenity and scenery supreme

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!

Whilst the tour guide was great and no fault to him the company should not have left him to do the whole wo to go himself We had a boat…let’s just say ‘difficult” people and entertaining yes they were but extremely annoying so another person helping would have made all the difference I don’t feel like I got value for money
