Guided Canoeing and Hiking Safaris

The Elanda Point Education Centre has been conducting guided safaris throughout the Cooloola Recreation Area for 25 years.
From their base deep in the Cooloola Area they have developed all the walks and canoe trails in and around the Noosa Everglades and are now considered to be one of the major canoe safari operations in Australia. They follow all regulations governing their activity and have National Park and Wildlife Service concessions. Bookings are necessary as minimum & maximum numbers do apply.

Backpackers and tourists can use the combo to see all of the Cooloola with the Harry’s Wednesday Guided Canoe Safari and then go back up the river on the next day for that missed photo with the Sandpatch Thursday Guided Hiking Safari.
The discounted combo is $209 per person, a discount of 15%. You’ll save time and money by not having to purchase a camping permit or having to haul food and camping gear up the river.
We will even throw in a free Tuesday night in a Painted Forest Hut so that you can laze amongst the kangaroos of Elanda and do the combo.

ARE YOU EQUAL TO THE CHALLENGE OF OUR GUIDED SAFARIS?

Our Guided Safaris are neither easy nor difficult. However, for safety reasons, we recommend against taking children under 8years, but we have had people over 70 years of age on our safaris. You require a reasonable standard of fitness, however our fully trained and experienced guides are approved by the Australian Canoe Federation and have contingency plans for all occasions as well as satellite communications with the Elanda Base at all time.

WHAT WE PROVIDE ON OUR GUIDED SAFARIS

We provide all canoes, paddles, buoyancy vests and a day pack, containing a water bottle, for your day gear, camera, etc. Our food is very delicious on the guided safaris. Where applicable we provide all land and watertaxi transport for you and your personal gear. You should have no need to bring cash or credit cards on our guided safaris, and we will provide free storage of luggage and valuables at Elanda Point for customers of our Guided Safaris. We also provide secure parking for your vehicle while you’re away.

CORPORATE NOOSA

If corporate life is all about working hard and receiving the rewards then we have motivational speaker/guides who can tailor a canoeing program that can make you work as hard as you choose. We also have systems that can reward you in the most unique way. Would you believe that we had a corporate group canoeing through the water wilderness that came across a silver service complete with waiters, they were very happy and extremely motivated.
