Riding on a Noosa Gondola feels a little bit Great Gatsby and little bit Venice. There is nothing more romantic than sipping champagne at sunset from a 1940's style speedboat as it cruises along the Noosa River. Gondolas of Noosa will pick you up from anywhere along the river, stop off at sand banks along the way and drop you at the venue of your choice.
As we floated around the Noosa Canals and Noosa Biosphere Reserve we spotted plenty of wildlife that call the region home - pelicans, lorikeets and king fishers. As we drifted past all the riverside mansions, we dreamed of owning such an idyllic holiday house.
There are many choices for riding a Gondola of Noosa - catered or uncatered (BYO is fine). There are breakfast cruises, moonlight cruises, but the Ultimate Romance Cruise is the best. This is a two hour private dinner cruise by candle light. It costs $400 and includes fresh local seafood platters, tapas from Ricky's Restaurant, hand made local chocolates and a single long stem rose.
This would be a fantastic way for a bride to arrive at a reception, to propose to your loved one, or a super impressive way to transport guests (up to six) to dinner or lunch. The gondolas are stunning and are guaranteed to set a very romantic mood for any special occasion.
