Really enjoyed the full day trip exploring the Everglades, it's a beautiful area with lots of great trees and tonnes of birds for any bird lovers (saw plenty of sea eagles for example) , really enjoyed the scenic canoe and thought it was good that this was optional if you didn't want to. On top of that our guide made... More

This tour was nice, but not spectacular. If you're dying to see the Noosa Everglades, or even just curious, it's a good tour. I did the full day Bar-B-Canoe tour for $129, which included morning tea, cookies, and a BBQ lunch (steak, fish, or veg option). The guide includes a boat up the Noosa River, across a couple lakes to... More

A long day but well worth the experience. Driving along Rainbow beach seeing the coloured sands and swimming in Lake Mackensie were the highlights. Dave our guide was excellent and kept us informed throughout and to complete the day we saw a dingo on the beach on our way home!

A brilliant day spent on the Everglades with Will our driver, a very knowledgeable and friendly guy. Morning tea, coffee and a barbecue lunch included in tour. The chance to go swimming at lunch time was great. I can highly recommend this tour.

This 6 hour tour involves a 2 hour trip up and back, from the shores of the Noosa river in Gympie Terrace, across 2 shallow lakes and into the Everglades. Very good commentary, refreshment stop and lunch. Facilities were excellent. The boat was large and comfortable and toilets were at the 2 locations we stopped. limited wildlife but overall not...

We had two trips with the Discovery Group. Both we fantastic days and the tour guides were very knowledgable and fun to be around. The food and drink provided was great and they always take into consideration "comfort breaks" and the customer service was excellent. Well done guys!
