Noosa eMtn Bike experience, fun flowing trails
You can ggl 'By Earth & Ocean' to find all my direct contact details and ask any questions but here is the general info; I am so grateful to be the FIRST and ONLY person permitted by Queensland Park and Wildlife Services (QPWS) to take guests into Tewantin National Parks single-track mountain bike trails on eBikes. Starting after lunch, we'll take the eBikes into the park so you can discover the hidden tracks and trails and experience the amazing new sport of eMtn Biking. I've got 7 top of the range, state of the art, dual suspension electric mountain bikes from Giant (world leading manufacturer). These bikes are incredibly comfortable and easy to ride off road with large wide tyres for extra grip and soft suspension for extra comfort. Normally this would make riding hard work, but the small, silent motor assists as you pedal. It rides, handles and feels like any bike but suddenly you can climb hills whilst having a conversation and without sweating. No one gets left behind. We'll take these bikes through the manicured bike trails, stopping along the way to witness how the flora changes in such a small area. Glide up to the top of the trails and then flow back down. You'll find your inner child returns with smiles from ear to ear. We'll finish with some well deserved refreshments in the national park whilst telling some tales and finishing the day with some laughs Other things to note Guests don't need a high level of fitness (because of the motor) but it's still an active day and guests should have experience and be comfortable to ride a bike over rocky terrain and up/down hills

As the only tour group within this section of Noosa's waterways you'll have it all to yourself. Once we’ve got you to the secret spots, you’ll get to encounter BEAUTIFUL stingrays. There are several different kinds and with the shallow water, we have a good chance of spotting them It's a calming, relaxing trip as you listen to nature and effortless glide through mangroves and bush. The whole experience lasts around 2hours. Other things to note It's a really gentle, calm experience and amazing for relaxing along with some exercise. You'll have a lovely time but expect to get wet, even if you don't go for a swim you'll get a few splashes so wear something you're comfortable in and that's fine to get wet

Please inquire before booking My goal is for you to have an excellent surfing experience, whether it's your first time surfing or you are trying to advance your skills.

Art & the Colors of Life in Art Therapy
Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy using art materials as an aid in expression of emotions and feelings. The process is the therapy as it can be a non-verbal form of communication that activates the right brain, induces relaxation by bypassing conscious thought and promotes neural connectivity. Making art fun for everybody and educating them about art is my passion. My workshops are suitable for people without any prior art experiences or knowledge! We will use water colours, pastels or chalk and movement that can give relief to trauma, resolve conflicts and enrich daily life. Your awareness of your own creative potential will increase along with feeling more connected to yourself and others.

Chill with Cats or Play with Kittens
Come and chill with foster cats or play with foster kittens. This unique experience is usually only available to those who want to adopt. However, it can help the foster cats and kittens to find ideal homes if they meet people of all ages and energy. They get more play time and I see what kind of people they bond better with. This will help with future adoptions. For the visitor the kitten experience can bring fun and laughter while the older cats provide a form of chill therapy. When you arrive I will talk about how animal rescue works in Australia. I will explain what my role is as a foster carer. Kitty Introduction There are two bedrooms and a lounge area that the cats and kittens may be in. We are also getting an enclosed balcony in a few months time. We will go and meet all the fosters. There will be a maximum of 4 people from your group in any room at a time. So if you have more than 4 people we will do multiple introduction tours. Kitty Time You will then be able to choose a room with specific kittens or cats to hang out with or move between rooms. This is a very special experience and is normally only available to those who foster or adopt. However, I know there are many cat lovers who would love to spend time with cats or kittens and are not able to adopt. So this is a perfect way to help kitties and people.

We’ll fish our way back to our home base for fish that are commonly found in the lower estuary. Join me to fish the river I know & discover some of the tips & techniques that I find successful here. You will return home with insights to the fish species here, the spots to target & the lures & techniques that are most likely to be successful’. ‘Propelled by the thrill of the chase, one-on-one we’ll paddle our kayaks out on to the pre-dawn Noosa River for a morning of dedicated lure fishing, in search of the wide variety of species lurking in the depths & shallows of this wonderful river system’. Each morning’s adventure will be tailored to suit each guest’s experience level, the weather & tide conditions, and the fish species on the chew at the time.’
