“Perfect day!”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

Dune surfing, body boarding, whale spotting, tree climbing in a rainforest, 4WD driving (as a passenger) and a great picnic - what more could you ask for?

We had limited time and for our family this was £400 well spent.

Tim is a great guy, was really good with the children and made me feel very comfortable.

“Noosa Safari - A great day”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

What a great day!! I booked Tim to take my family and I out for the day, and we had a great time. Tim picked us up from our hotel on time and took us straight across town for the car ferry. Then it was time for some beach driving, a stop at red canyon, exclusive vehicle access to the lighthouse (a real bonus to not have to walk up the hill!). We saw whales and dolphins and Tim's knowledge of the local area including plants was exceptional. A trip to the lagoon on the beach for lunch and some beach boarding followed by some serious off roading to the rain forest before back to the hotel. My children are 8 and 10 but it doesnt matter how old you are for this trip, its great fun for all. Plenty of toilet stops on route and a very nice supplied lunch. Thanks Tim for a great day, our best day in Australia.

“Great trip”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

Really enjoyed this trip, we all came home exhausted after climbing sand dunes, bodyboarding at the beach, swimming in the lagoon and not to forget some spectacular tumbles down the red canyon by the children - coming to Funniest Home Videos soon! Tim, our guide was very informative answering all of our questions about the area as well as many from the children too. Lunch was lovely and enjoyed by all. Definitely a worthwhile trip if you are visiting the Sunshine Coast as these areas would not be accessible otherwise. Very pleased that this was included in our itinerary - thanks Noosa Safaris!

“Brilliant Day out by us all and Tim Was an excellent host .”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

Five of us booked Noosa Safari day trip on Dec 26 th . Blue skies and great weather helped make this day one to remember . Tim was a fantastic guide and shared his knowledge with us in an informative and very friendly way . The trip was just the right length and we had just the right amount of driving and stop offs . Some of us at done Fraser Island before and this trip had as much if more to offer .The picnic lunch was perfect ,delicious and very enjoyable , trip to the lighthouse at double point was wonderful with great views . Jeep drive along the huge sandy shore was both exhilarating and beautiful . Small group was perfect and swim at the lagoon was a welcome refreshing cool off . Highly recommend this trip for anyone lucky enough to be staying at Noosa . Thanks Tim .
