Learn more about 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 Noosa Everglades kayak tours take you into the heart of this spectacular wilderness.

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.



Thank you once again for a great trip! I have just completed a positive review on Travel Advisor. Overall, I would give our trip a 10. The only thing that would have made it better is if we had opted to stay for two nights instead of one!
Thank you for everything!


We think that the tour was a 10 out of 10 and we cannot think of anything that could be improved. And we would definitely recommend it to friends and our family. Thank you for the great tour!

Thank you very much for the photos. It is nice redoing a very nice day - even if only virtually. It was really great standing out as one of the great thing we experienced in Australia. Thanks to Rikki for excellent guiding, food and everything. I have already recommended to several people - now only we need to see if they get to the Noosa corner of the world.

Just to inform you that we received our photos last week which were excellent. My family and I had a terrific time in what it is a world class location, and breathtaking views. I have spoken to a number of my colleagues and have recommended that they undertake this marvelous trip.

Thanks again for the great day. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The scenery was wonderful and we were so very lucky with the day, and of course, the guide! I have already recommended the trip to friends who are going up to Noosa
