The Nine Adventures of Elanda

To the Kabi Aboriginal Tribe, the original inhabitants of the Noosa Area, the soft sounds of the breeze whispering in the dune cypress trees crooned a low mournful wail which inspired the Aboriginal name Cooloola.
Today the name applies to the Cooloola Recreation Area, being part of the Great Sandy National Park.
It is in this wilderness that the Elanda Point Education Centre has developed the Nine Adventures of Elanda.
To allow you to do the Nine Adventures of Elanda the centre hires canoes, kayaks, motor boats and provides all equipment and advice for a “do it yourself” adventure throughout the Cooloola Area.

The centre also conducts 2, 3, 4 and 5 day programmed packages for groups such as schools, clubs, church and business groups. Elanda provides accommodation and/or food in comfortable huts which may also include Group Eco-adventures where highly qualified facilitators guide groups through many of the Nine Adventures of Elanda with instruction in canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking and much more.

For travellers and adventurers, every Tuesday from 9.30am till 4.30pm from April to November the Elanda Point with its highly experienced instructors conduct the Harry’s Tuesday Guided Canoe Safari which covers some of the Nine Adventures of Elanda. For more of the Nine Adventures of Elanda, travellers and adventurers can join the Sandpatch Wednesday Guided Hiking Safari from 9.30am till 4.30pm on every Wednesday from April to November.
,
The Elanda Point Education Centre has a legendary knowledge of the Cooloola walks and waterways and they invite people from all over Australia and the world to enjoy the Nine Adventure of Elanda.
