The pristine Noosa Everglades wilderness is a unique place of serene natural beauty, bursting with rare bird and plant species. The Kabi Aboriginal tribe once graced this ancient land. Exploration by kayak allows full immersion in the wilderness and a feeling of being at one with nature which can be rare to find.
