The 10 Best Tours in Noosa, Queensland

May 22, 2022 Chanda Heide

Noosa is a world-famous surfing destination, known for its expansive beaches and colorful bays. Hike across Noosa National Park's cliffs and forests, canoe through the Noosa River Everglades, kayak across the open sea or just bask in the sunshine on golden sand that stretches and sparkles for miles. A day trip to nearby Fraser Island, a World Heritage Site where lush rainforests mingle with dry sand dunes, is a unique experience not to be missed.

My 9 year old son nearly fell asleep. He was asking me "Dad when can we get off I am so bored". The driver is 80 years old if he is a day (see previous review from another customer - couldn't agree more). So disappointing. Absolutely nothing like the amazing experience I had in Sydney harbor previously where the ride was exciting, we got wet, tossed about and laughed our heads off. This "ride" was soooo conservative. Absolutely no chance to get wet as the driver simply incapable of the turns / speed. Such a let down. Please read this review and avoid. I promised my son I would save as many others as possible from not throwing away $150 and losing valuable time on their holiday.
