Overview
More
Lake Escapades offers canoes, kayaks and powered runabouts for hire from our base on the shores of Lake Cootharaba at Boreen Point on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. We specialise in day and overnight tours and safaris to the Noosa Everglades. We keep the cost down by making these self-guided, though the trips are fully inclusive with everything you need ... including canoe or kayak hire, safety gear, instruction, detailed briefings and maps. All you need to do is get yourself to Boreen Point - about a 20 minute drive from Noosa via Tewantin, or from Cooroy or Pomona - and we'll do the rest.

The water in the lake and the upper Noosa River can certainly appear to be dark pr murky on some days especially after rain. This is the result of the tannin from the tea trees which surround the waterways being washed into the lake. In...More
