What you can expect

Enter the mirrored waterways of Australia’s only everglades nestled in the Cooloola National Park on this Noosa Everglades serenity cruise. Be transported into a whole new world just minutes from the hustle of Noosa town centre where you can immerse yourself in untamed wilderness.

Discover the spectacular network of waterways as you cruise Lake Cootharaba on a purpose built, eco certified vessel with large open windows to admire nature. Admire subtropical rainforests and the constant hum of lively birds as you cruise upstream. With over 700 animals and over 1400 species of plant, this is one journey you don’t want to miss.

Passengers are invited to take a dip in the refreshing waters, take an optional canoe out to examine the lush scenery a little closer or enjoy a quiet moment onboard the everglades explorer to take it all in.
