Laguna Lookout

This Noosa Everglades Tour is a must to have on your itinerary, for sure. We stop at Laguna Lookout which offers the ultimate panorama of Noosa which is a short drive from the bustling hub of Hastings Street and provides sweeping views that extend out as far as the mountains in the distance and across the Noosa River.

Hastings Street & Noosa Main Beach

Next stop is Hastings Street where you will enjoy 45 minutes’ free time to explore Hastings Street and Noosa Main Beach. You will have plenty of time to grab a coffee or browse the many shops along Hastings Street or take a walk to Noosa National Park.

Noosa Main Beach is one of the few beaches along Australia’s coastline facing north and is the best option for families or those who are not confident in the surf, as it is protected by the headland, has gentle waves and is patrolled year-round by surf lifesavers.

Noosa Ferry 

After Hastings Street, you will take a ride on the Noosa Ferry up the Noosa River to Tewantin for an appetising two-course lunch on the river. The Noosa Ferry will allow you to enjoy the passing scenery in a laid-back manner, this is one of the many Sunshine Coast attractions for the camera!

The ferry will pick you up at Hastings Street and take you on a ferry cruise along the Noosa River to Noosa Marina. You will get to see local wildlife, amazing scenery and views right over the water, and you’ll also get to check out the region from a different viewpoint.

Pier 11 – Lunch

If you’re a foodie, you’re in for a treat as the two-course lunch with a glass of wine or beer is at one of Noosa’s highly rated restaurants, Pier 11 – Bistro, Restaurant & Functions is spectacularly located at the Noosa Marina perched overlooking the Noosa River.

The stylish and warm decor of the main restaurant offers diners a picturesque waterfront setting for all dining occasions. The River Lounge offers a great place to take in the endless river views and the natural surrounds. A waterfront setting unmatched in Noosa.

Noosa Everglades Serenity Cruise

After lunch enjoy a 20-minute scenic drive through Noosaville & Tewantin past the forestry plantations before arriving at Habitat Noosa Everglades Eco Camp, recently awarded Australia’s Best New Tourism Business, where you’ll depart on an afternoon Serenity Cruise, on Lake Cootharaba, heading north up the Upper Noosa River to Fig Tree Point (historic indigenous location ) past the Kinaba Information Centre.

This is the start of the Noosa Everglades. Onboard you’ll enjoy a glass of bubble and light savory afternoon tea before returning to Habitat Noosa with the sun lowering over the lake to end what is an amazing full day in Noosa.

Why Book a Noosa Everglades Tour?

Noosa is one of the many jewels in the Sunshine Coast crown, and with stunning beaches, nature at every turn, and one of the most famous shopping streets in the region (Hastings Street), this is somewhere you simply have to visit.

If you’re a lover of gastronomy, there are several top-quality restaurants in Noosa too, making it a foodie’s delight! Stuff yourself with delicious fare and walk it off along the main shopping street – go on, you know you want to!

The sunsets in Noosa are also some of the best around, in fact, they are rivalled by very few in the entire country. The Noosa National Park is home to an abundance of flora, fauna, and wildlife to explore, and the coastal path shows you some of it, with stunning views aplenty. Remember your camera for this one!

Within all of this, Noosa has that typically laid-back, surfer vibe that this part of Australia is so famously known for. Friendly, welcoming people are at every turn, and when it comes to showing you the best of Noosa, you’ll have a queue of people offering their services. Of course, your driver is also an expert in the area, and if you want to know anything, ask away!

Regardless of the month of the year, Noosa bathes in the sunshine, and even when it’s apparently winter everywhere else, Noosa doesn’t know what that word means!

Put simply, Noosa should be on your ‘things to see and do on the Sunshine Coast’ list, and if you aren’t basing your entire vacation there, our half-day trip will show you a snapshot of this beautiful part of the coast. Of course, you might love it so much that you want to go back again, and in that case, why not?!

Bloody Amazing!

Review of: Sunshine Coast Private Scenic Guided Tour Inc. 2-Course Gourmet Lunch

Geoff was probably the best guide I could have asked for. I wasn’t really fazed with an itinerary so we just made it up as we went along. Don’t make the mistake of hiring a car and getting lost. Geoff knows where everything is and also an extensive history behind everything from coffee, beer, wine, views, gin and eateries.
