Return Details

Returns to original departure point
The Noosa Everglades include numerous tributaries, lakes and wetlands along the upper Noosa River, which runs through the Cooloola Recreation Area within Great Sandy National Park. Meet your guide at a convenient location in Noosa, then set out for the Noosa Everglades, which are located about 25 miles (40 km) away.

Cruise through the Noosa Everglades in a sturdy all–weather boat with large viewing windows. Your expert captain moves at a faster clip across Lake Cooroibah and Lake Cootharaba, then slows down in the Everglades, allowing you to observe the scenery closely. During your tour, hear informative commentary about the range of animal and plant life that thrives in this part of the Sunshine Coast.

After cruising the everglades, return to Habitat Noosa. Relax and enjoy an antipasto banquet while overlooking Lake Cootharaba. In this natural parkland, you may spot a few kangaroos before heading back to Noosa on the courtesy shuttle bus.
Stop At:  
The Noosa River system is unique as its entire upper catchment is protected in National Park. Throughout your cruise take the opportunity to observe and photograph the abundance of wildlife in their natural habitat. Over 44% of all Australia’s bird species reside within this spectacular region - which is more than Kakadu National Park in an area 25 times smaller. “Discover an unspoiled part of Noosa - Australia’s Everglades. Pristine water full of life. Our Guide kept us consumed with the beauty of the place and the knowledge he shared was fantastic. It also included nibbles along the way and a fantastic tapas to wrap up a magical afternoon. I recommend this great half day tour to everyone!” At the end of the tour you can enjoy a delicious snack tapas, go for a walk around Habitat Noosa and maybe even spot a few of our local kangaroos before concluding a great afternoon in Australia's only Everglades.

Long wait, disorganised, dangerous path for older passengers past the bridge to the boat. Put down the windows AFTER we were wet. Not anywhere near enough information about the “Everglades” Very expensive for such a short tour.

we loved the cruise but were dissapointed that some passengers spent most of it at the front of the boat and were not asked to rotate with other passengers. I personally thought the food provided after the trip was not as good as it sounded on the blurb.

An excellent experience which can be spoilt by other selfish passengers.
, Nov 2021
The trip was excellent good organisation, friendly and informative staff but was somewhat spolt by a group of selfish passengers who stood at the front of the boat for the best part of the trip through the everglades thus blocking the view of the other two thirds of the passengers behind them. They also devoured the better part of the excellent anti pasta feast provided afterwards before anyone else could get close. But for this, we would have given this trip a five star rating.

It was ok. Not much more to say. Wasn’t happy walking to boat When I asked due to walking problems if I could get a refund answer was not sure probably not

Hi Sue, I would be happy to discuss further if you could email me on Being located in a national park we can offer a transfer to the bridge around 200m from the pontoon leading to the boat but guests must be able to walk from the bridge to the pontoon and board the vessel. If we are aware of any mobility challenges we would outline the requirements and advise not to participate if requirements could not be met by the guest.

Thank you for sharing your feedback Terry. We hope to see you again soon.
Beautiful relaxing tour.
, Jul 2021
A wonderful tranquil cruise. The captain gave a very informative but also very humourous narrative throughout our trip. The scenery was stunning and the reflections amazing. The cheese and wine refreshments were a delicious surprise, juice coffee tea and biscuits also on offer. Our tour consisted of a wide age range from children up to my 80 year old husband and we all agreed it was a great way to spend an afternoon.
