Situated on the Sunshine Coast in SE Qld, Eco River Rides provides an excellent opportunity for tourists to explore the Maroochy River and Wetlands Sanctuary at their own pace. Complete with an exploration boardwalk as well as an education & information centre, Eco River Rides focuses on allowing visitors to experience culture, history, and stunning natural environment of the Maroochy River and Wetlands Sanctuary and aim to foster sustainable attitudes and behaviour change among all their guests.

The crown jewel of Eco River Rides is their unique mode of transport. Guided and self-guided tours are conducted in solar-powered electric canoes that allow visitors to immerse themselves in the natural surroundings with no noise or interference from a loud motor. Equipped with water tight storage, these 20-foot-long capable crafts easily fit four people, can be operated with ease and keep personal items safe during tours.
