A chain of stunning, shallow lagoons are delicately separated from the Southern Ocean by a narrow sandy dune peninsula almost a hundred miles long in this beautiful park.
The fragile ecology is fed by the rich waters of the Murray River and supports an array of birdlife from pelicans to migratory waders and other waterfowl.
Exploring Coorong National Park
This area is of tremendous spiritual significance to the local Ngarrindjeri people and there are a number of fascinating Dreamtime sites well worth exploring.
It is a delightful deviation from the road on your journey between Melbourne and Adelaide and there are half or full-day cruises available aboard the sleek and powerful ‘Spirit of the Coorong’ — an excellent way to explore.
