Everglades Explorer

The best way to explore Australia's unique Everglades is through the Everglades Explorer tour. Specially designed vessels will transport you through the sparkling waters of the upper Noosa River and the verdant landscape of the Everglades, which has remained unspoiled for millennia.

The first stop on the tour is Fig Tree Point, where you can take a brief walk along a circuit through lush tropical rainforests. Afterward, you can either reboard the eco-friendly vessel or grab a paddle and canoe along one of the most exciting canoeing routes in Australia (requires moderate fitness as it is a 5km journey).

As you navigate the pristine waterways, you will have the opportunity to witness native flora and fauna as well as colourful bird species. An expert guide will provide commentary throughout the journey, and the expansive viewing windows will offer great photo opportunities.

Explore Harry's Hut, an old logger's camp from the early 1900s, surrounded by gorgeous natural bushland or take a dip in the tea tree-infused water before returning to the mainland aboard the vessel.

Upon returning to Habitat Noosa, you can relax and enjoy lunch at CootharaBAR & Bistro, or sample unique craft beer from Australia's only artesian microbrewery (additional cost).

The Everglades Explorer tour is a fantastic way to experience the wonder of Australia's Everglades and is recognised as one of the most awe-inspiring natural wilderness adventures globally.

Guests are shuttled back to Noosa transit stops at 3 pm.
