ecoTekk Who We Are?

Proudly Locally Owned and Operated Family Enterprises

Welcome to ecoTekk, the premier electric (e-Bike) hire and tour service on the vibrant Sunshine Coast. Our story is a synergy of two distinct businesses, both locally owned and operated family enterprises: ecoTekk Noosa, the brainchild of Darren Walters, a seasoned tourism expert with a history of managing resorts in the Noosa region, and ecoTekk Sunshine Coast, founded and operated by the dynamic duo of Stuart Whitney and Tracey McKean.

In 2015, Darren embarked on a journey, leveraging his extensive background in managing tourism resorts. Recognising the disparity in fitness levels amongst guests exploring Noosa’s bike pathways, he envisioned a solution – electric-assist bicycles. These e-bikes emerged as a game-changer, levelling the fitness and skill divide. They enable both novices and those of average fitness to savour the beauty of Noosa and its environs effortlessly.

On the other end of the coast is @ecoTekkSC. Stuart and Tracey, a passionate husband and wife team, stumbled upon the e-bike experience through a providential win at a sustainability conference. Despite initial hesitations, a trial ride around Noosa rekindled their love for cycling, dormant for over two decades. Inspired by this reawakening and their dedication to environmental stewardship, they joined forces with Darren in 2018 to establish ecoTekk Sunshine Coast (@ecoTekkSC).

At ecoTekk, we strive to offer sustainable and unforgettable adventures across the Sunshine Coast region. As pioneers in electric bike rentals and guided tours, we present a distinctive approach to relishing the natural beauty stretching from Noosa to Caloundra and the surrounding Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

We proudly harness solar energy to power our electric bikes, exemplifying our commitment to eco-friendliness.
