Self-Guided Noosa Everglades Kayak Tour


  • Explore at your own pace on a self-guided tour

  • Devise your own itinerary: visit Harry’s Hut or Kin Kin Creek

  • Hassle-free pickup and drop-off from your Noosa hotel

  • No experience necessary: maps and instruction provided


We meet at Elanda Point in the National Park kayak launch site and we settle you into your kayak, showing you the map and teaching you all the basic skills for an enjoyable paddle across Lake Cootharaba to Kinaba. From here, you are free to explore where you want within the Noosa Everglades. Explore up the lesser-paddled waters of Kin Kin Creek or enjoy the company of the mighty Noosa River and weave in and out of the small islands which dot the northern reaches of Fig Tree Lake. Test your paddling stamina and head up to the iconic Harry’s Hut for a swim in the tea coloured waters, or perhaps you plan to use the kayak to get to a wilder bush walking track within the Cooloola Recreation Area. Your possibilities are endless!
