About Lake Escapades
Lake Escapades offers canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards (SUPs) and powered runabouts for hire from our base on the shores of Lake Cootharaba at Boreen Point on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. We specialise in day and overnight self-guided hires for the Noosa Everglades as well as a range of short-medium distance Paddle’n Picnic exploration hires on and around Lake Cootharaba including family-friendly routes through ancient creeks and to private lakefront beaches and elusive hiking trails. We keep the cost down by making these self-guided with BYO food and drink, though all hires are fully inclusive with everything else you need ... including canoe or kayak hire, safety gear, instruction, detailed briefings and maps. All you need to do is get yourself to Boreen Point - about a 20 minute drive from Noosa via Tewantin, or from Cooroy or Pomona - and we'll do the rest.

Robert from Lake Escapades ensured our 2 night 3 day canoe trip was safe and well planned. Harry’s Hut Campground was a lovely place for our 2 night camp. The first few hours of our canoeing from Elanda Point to the Information Centre was a bit rough going but added to the excitement. Robert’s briefing at the start was essential and extremely informative in finding our way to Harry’s Campground. Robert kept contact with us throughout the trip to ensure our safety and due to rough weather organised to pick us up by 4WD instead of water taxi on the last leg of the trip.I can’t recommend this company highly enough. This trip is a must do for people who love the outdoors.

Rob was very helpful, providing some great advice that made a huge difference to our trip. The canoes, paddles, barrels and maps were in excellent condition. And were delivered ahead of time to Harry's Hut. We had a lovely weekend in the Noosa Everglades. Highly recommend.

Fantastic experience. Booking process made incredibly easy through Rob - and meet up and briefing likewise effortless on the day. Rob made us comfortable that we knew where we were going with a thorough briefing, supplied all the gear we required and checked in with us throughout the trip. We really enjoyed our time on the river, it no was beautiful. We chose an overnight option and were glad we did, as the tranquility the next morning at the campsite we had to ourselves was lovely. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the trip and Rob to anyone looking for something to do in the area.

Booked a 3 person canoe for a half day, so spent about 5 hours on the water with a couple of stops at Kinaba & Harry's Hut. Rob was knowledgeable about all conditions & the safety talk was easy to digest. Was waiting for us at Kinaba on our return for water taxi back to Elanda. Rates are competitive, definitely recommend Lake Escapades for your canoe or kayak trip, probably advise a full day so the pace is easier & more time to look around.

Had a great day trip on single Kayaks. Weather was a bit hairy but Rob was fantastic in giving us advice, checking in and sending through weather updates. Great communication and instructions. We'll worth the trip :). Thanks Rob
