What people are saying about Noosa, Queensland

I enjoyed this tour. It was relaxing. It’s quite an experience to see the river of mirrors. I took my 16 year old daughter and I joked that we were definitely the youngest on the tour. The description says we get anti pasto platters. We didn’t but we did get a delicious savoury scone each and a drink, which was lovely. The tour guide was knowledgeable and also humorous. We did see one bird. Lovely tour.

fun, interesting, and beautiful. i liked the fact that within the glades it will always be peaceful, regardless of the wild weather beyond. guide was great, and i appreciated the mimosa and antipasto.
