Everglades Experience

A very enjoyable and informative experience with Dave our tour guide delivering a very interesting and knowledgeable commentary as we made our way through the Everglades within the reaches of the Upper Noosa River. On reaching Harry’s Hut, half way through our excursion, we were treated to a well timed and welcoming morning tea at a very well maintained facility. The journey back was pleasant and on arriving back at Habitat Noosa we were treated to a very flavoursome lunch which was well coordinated and presented in a comfortable and well maintained setting.

Excellent

We had a wonderful day out and our two guides were so knowledgeable about the area. We were told lots of stories about the whole area and the impact tree felling has had. The weather was perfect and we were able to swim and canoe on the trip. The roast pork dinner was delicious. Would highly recommend

Relaxing, food incredible

The wind was blowing but we were able to close of the boat ride which made it very pleasant. So go even if the weather is bad. The ride through the everglades was peaceful, relaxing and really pretty. The morning tea stop had lots to eat, fresh fruit, cookies, cake, tea, coffee and juice. The lunch when we arrived back was incredible. Roast chicken, roast potatoes with whole garlic, home made bread, coleslaw, green salad, corn on the cob and gorgeous gravy. There was plenty of food and some of the boys had 2nd helpings. They catered for all kinds of food allergies and preferences which was really impressive. We met some wonderful people. Really really enjoyed the day, the company and the food. Highly recommend the trip.

Poor tour

Not too much animals, short tour, we expected more. Food included but it wasn't enough, poor lunch. I didn't like the experience.
