Lake Escapades

Explore the beautiful Lake Cootharaba by canoe, kayak, stand-up paddle board (SUP) or boat with Lake Escapades, who have all the gear you need for hire.

Lake Escapades are based at Boreen Point on the shores of the magnificent Lake Cootharaba, just 25 mins from Noosa Heads. The lake forms part of the Noosa River system and offers a wide variety of natural areas to explore, ranging from private secluded beaches, to ancient creeks and remote, unspoiled hiking tracks.

Lake Escapades specialise in offering family-friendly paddle and picnic hires by canoe, kayak or SUP so you can explore at your own pace with a BYO picnic. They can also provide all necessary gear and a detailed safety briefing with maps and GPS trackers.

Hires can vary from just a couple of hours, to half-day, full-day and also overnight camp trips - and you can get started as early as sunrise.

Battery-powered electric motors are an additional option on the canoes. You can also hire powered runabouts, accommodating up to 5 people without needing a boat licence. Go exploring this beautiful natural playground, including into the renowned Noosa Everglades.
