The Basics

The everglades’ aquatic landscape is best explored by boat. Cruise up the Noosa River on a guided river cruise or canoe excursion to see wildlife and vegetation up close, learn about the area’s unique ecology, and swim in the reflective waters. A typical Noosa Everglades tour includes a boat cruise along the river, wildlife watching around Lake Cooroibah and Lake Cootharaba, and a barbeque lunch or afternoon tea at one of the area’s scenic campgrounds.

We took up the tour to have a different view of the Aussie landscape. The tour is relaxing and we opted in the canoeing. The scenery was superb and the dip in the river at the end of the canoeing was heavenly.

Cruise 'n' Canoe to Australia's Everglades
This was an easygoing and relaxing experience. In short, it’s a trip out to the Everglades where you canoe, swim and bush walk. Good lunch at the end. Suitable for most ages! If you’re an adventure or adrenaline junkie I would avoid though.

When to Get There

Summer (December through January) is the most popular time to visit, although boat cruises are possible year-round as temperatures rarely dip below 68°F (20°C). In summer, opt for an early morning or late afternoon tour to avoid the hottest part of the day.

Wildlife in the Noosa Everglades

The diversity of trees, plants, and wildlife is one of the main attractions of the Noosa Everglades, with big twisting grasses, large swamp banksias, dense reeds, and hundreds of different flower species. As you cruise around the wetlands you can admire tea trees, melaleucas, and water lilies, while keeping a lookout for pelicans, ducks, cormorants, and eagles. You might even spot a rare jabiru swooping overhead, snakes or lizards lazing on the riverbanks, or the odd kangaroo hopping along the shore.
