Perched on the edge of Lake Cootharaba is Habitat Noosa… not only does it present a pretty spectacular sunrise, but this pristine lake is also the gateway to one of only two everglades systems on this planet!
With over 60 kilometres of flora, fauna and narrow waterways to explore, you’re going to need a place to stay… and that’s where Habitat Noosa Everglade Ecocamp comes into the picture.
Wayne Poole is just one of the friendly faces you’ll stumble across there… and this year, after taking out Australia’s best new tourism business, it’s been his mission to stay on top!
“The staff at Habitat Noosa were over the moon… to be voted the best new tourism business in all of Australia was just amazing… we try and set a new standard in Eco Tourism… and tourism across Australia. So, everything from our power, our water, all of our sustainability, our recycling, all of those elements went into it and we had to be the best of the best,” Wayne said.
To experience the true beauty of Lake Cootharaba, you can do so atop it… otherwise soaking it up lakeside is not a bad option either. But if you’re after a more immersive experience, they also have a variety of tours… one of which takes you right through the heart of the Everglades from the banks of Habitat Noosa!
And when you do return to shore, CootharaBAR is where you’ll want to come for lunch… they even have an on-site microbrewery.
And while Habitat Noosa makes for a great day trip, they also have plenty of sites for caravans and campers… plus a little added luxury for those who enjoy all the mod cons of home! To book your stay, head to their website here.
