Eco Gifting Plastic Free Champions Plastic Free Members Hinterland Boreen Point

Kanu Kapers is family-owned and passionately operated, using locally crafted kayaks for their sustainable kayak tours and overnight adventures to one of just two Everglades in the world. Located only minutes from Noosa, the pristine Noosa Everglades is a stunningly beautiful water wilderness, bursting with rare wildlife. Paddling the Everglades ensures total immersion in nature, maximum wildlife viewing, and minimal environmental impact.

Sustainability runs in their veins and they provide locally sourced, unwrapped produce wherever possible, red-cycle all soft plastics, and encourage guests to sort recycling in labeled bins, wash and reuse crockery and cutlery and refill water bottles instead of using plastic.
