“Noosa Everglades Discovery BBQ Lunch”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Fantastic day out! Trevor was our guide and he was full of facts and stories about the local area as we cruised up the river and across the lakes. Morning tea was a treat with a choice of biscuits, cakes & muffins all laid out on a table cloth. Those of us feeling energetic took a 5km paddle in canoes down to Harry's Hut where we were having a BBQ lunch before hopping back on the water to return the canoes. A great day out, catering for everyone whether you are feeling active enough to race down the river under your own steam or want to sit and watch the world go by from the front of the boat.

“Fraser Island day trip -fantastic”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

The trip started nice and early, not my favorite time if the day but what a way to start.. Heading on the beach, watching the sun rise... Stu our driver, guide, cook and all round nice guy made the day enjoyable with his local knowledge etc.. We had a small group which made it very pleasant. We enjoyed a rainforest walk with the most amazingly clear water.. A stop at Mckenzie lake was great and it looks as good as the brochures. Thoroughly recommend this.

“Sand and beach”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Forget hiring a 4 wheel drive,forget packing food,forget the GPS,forget the park permits and barge fees just do a trip with everything included.
What a fabulous way to visit Fraser Island. The food was great the information was excellent.The 4 wheel drive truck was a great way to negotiate the terrain and it is bumpy very bumpy. Certainly the highlight for me was driving the beaches it gives you a perspective of the vast coast line and rough seas. All the staff I dealt with in doing this trip were both informative and helpful keep up the good work.

“Tastes of the Sunshine Coast”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We enjoyed traveling around to visit Buderim Ginger factory and other food related places in the region. The tour also took in some lookouts over spectacular valley scenery and visits to Montville and Maleny townships.

The tour is definitely a taster of the area but it is hard to spend as much time as you need at each individual location. It gives you an idea of places you may wish to visit for longer periods in the future. Eg You really need more than 2 hours to explore the Buderim Ginger factory, especially if you have a young family. There are quite a few activities there as well as a great souvenir shop full of local produce. The factory tour is very informative and the tasting of products enjoyable. Our time in Montville was also too short as there is much to see but we had to have lunch there which took up most of the time allotted.

However I am glad we did this tour as it has introduced us to the many lovely attributes of this area and I would love to go back there some time exploring at leisure.

“Amazing Day in the Everglades!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I did the Bar-B-Canoe day trip over the weekend, and had an amazing time. The everglades were a great break from all the beaches, and absolutely full of wildlife. It was a perfect day, and the reflections on the water were just like the brochures. The guide Andy was amazing, and an excellent chef. I'm gluten free and was shocked by how much amazing food I was given! Several types of biscuits, bread for lunch and most of the food was gluten free anyways (for anyone with food allergies you will understand why I was so excited by this!) I would absolutely recommend this trip to anyone passing through Noosa! If I'm ever back I'll probably check out the 3 day trip :) Thanks for an awesome day guys!
