Noosa Everglades Kayak and Canoe
The Noosa Everglades
Hidden within the Cooloola section of the Great Sandy National Park is one of the Sunshine Coast’s best kept paddling secrets, the Noosa Everglades. Best explored by canoe or kayak, the upper reaches of the Noosa River and the Everglades represent an ancient waterway that has existed unchanged for thousands of years.
Kanu Kapers offers half, one, two and three day guided and self guided tours in our easy to paddle and stable sea kayaks. A kayak tour into the Noosa Everglades is an inspiring day out among some of the most spectacular scenery you will find any where in the world. Kayak hire is simple with our sleek, modern, comfortable expedition sea kayaks.
The Noosa Everglades are situated within Noosa Biosphere, Queensland's first UNESCO Biosphere promoting harmony between people and nature through education, conservation and sustainable activities. The Noosa Biosphere Reserve encompasses 150,000 hectares of land and sea in which you can investigate the diversity of our eco-systems and culture. A wetland of international importance, it is the only river system in Australia that has its entire upper catchment protected in National Park.
