Ecotourism is our Passion!

 

Traditional Custodians

We acknowledge the Kabi Kabi Traditional Custodians who have provided us with cultural knowledge and collective memories of the Noosa River and Lakes region. According to Kabi Law our responsibility is to maintain the eco system and its flora and fauna. As we travel this land, river and lake system we have a responsibility to protect our bio network which ensures our long term survival. This is our promise!

 

Sustainable & Respectful Tourism

We are passionate about environmental sustainability and eco tourism and aim to minimise our impact on climate change. As we do not operate any motorised boats, we are able to share this absolutely pristine wetland without harming it.  

Unpacking tourism

Sustainability runs in our veins and we provide locally sourced, unwrapped produce wherever possible, red-cycle all soft plastics, and encourage guests to sort recycling in labelled bins, wash and reuse crockery and cutlery and refill water bottles instead of using plastic.
