Ride on the river with this ocean bike
If you’ve never seen the Nauticycle before, it’s best described as a bicycle and a boat blended together – pretty cool, huh? It’s a relaxed way to explore the river as you cruise at your own pace, stopping to take in the spectacular views. It’s all courtesy of Eco Noosa River Adventures, where you can also hire stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, luxury electric boats and bikes (the land kind).
