    What to Expect

    We meet at Elanda Point in the National Park kayak launch site and we settle you into your kayak, showing you the map and teaching you all the basic skills for an enjoyable paddle across Lake Cootharaba to Kinaba. From here, you are free to explore where you want within the Noosa Everglades. Explore up the lesser-paddled waters of Kin Kin Creek or enjoy the company of the mighty Noosa River and weave in and out of the small islands which dot the northern reaches of Fig Tree Lake. Test your paddling stamina and head up to the iconic Harry’s Hut for a swim in the tea coloured waters, or perhaps you plan to use the kayak to get to a wilder bush walking track within the Cooloola Recreation Area. Your possibilities are endless!

    Our tour was on Monday, 9 Dec 2019. We had really good experience on this tour. The staffs were really friendly and gave really good instructions before we started paddling. Their kayaks were well equipped. The driver was also really nice, he even picked us up and dropped us

    Did the 1-day self-guided paddle with a dozen mates. The 5km paddle across Lake Cootharabah can be a bit testing when the wind is up, but the kayaks are good, and we were all in doubles, which made it easier. Stopped for a snack and a drink at the Kinaba Info Centre before we

    It was wonderful you organised such a group to paddle the Everglades. Did you know the Lake is an important part of the Everglades system with so much wild life to be seen up close as you paddle your kayak. We regularly see black swans, kangaroos, jabirus, beautiful fish and sting rays in the lake section of the Everglades. As its shallow as well people love to hop out of their kayak and have a quick dip beside their kayak. We look forward to seeing you again, perhaps on a 2 or 3 day adventure! kind regards Kym

    Did the self guided tour and it was really nice! You get detailed instructions about the boat and the tour from a guide at the beginning. So later it was easy for us to stay on track and finish everything we wanted to see in time. Nature out there is awsome, saw lots of birds

    Absolutely loved this kayaking tour. We booked a self guided one but due to the recent bush fires, we had to have a guide with us. Vivienne was wonderful, explained how to operate the kayaks perfectly and we all felt confident with her taking us out across the lake and through

    Hi Lauzza Thanks so much for your review about your kayak tour of the Noosa Everglades which you enjoyed so much. Yes paddling can provide a workout thats for sure and agreed this does add to the experience as it is self propelling which is an achievement. Well done and we look forward to seeing you again. Warm regards Kym

    For someone who hadn't done kayaking before, I'm really glad I chose this place and Kanu Kapers Australia for the experience. Yes, the kayaking sure does gets tiring but the calm in the waters, the beautiful views, the chirping of the birds, the gentle waves, all of it was just
