The Coorong National Park in South Australia is a park with so much to offer everyone in love with life in the great outdoors. Whether it’s fishing, camping, four wheel beach driving, bird watching, kayaking, fishing, walking, photography or a mix of all of the above, this incredible stretch of beach, dunes, calm waters and wild ocean is one that adventurers need to experience at least once in your lifetime.
Here’s a must do for those living in South Australia when you’re down Goolwa way on a Saturday or Sunday. If you’re not in South Australia add this experience to the list if you’re planning a visit in spring or summer.
From Goolwa take the bridge over the Murray River to Hindmarsh Island, stay on the main road and follow the signs to the Murray Mouth. This is worth the drive at anytime to see where this mighty river winds its way out to the Southern Ocean but time it right and you’ll be in for a treat.
There is a special place in South Australia which I think has gone largely unnoticed, but a spotlight is about to be shone on it with the release of a movie in January 2019. The movie is ‘Storm Boy’ and the setting is The Coorong, an area in South Australia that at it’s heart, is less than 2 hours from Adelaide. The Coorong is a series of estuarine lagoons that are protected from the wild Southern Ocean by sand dunes and a shell covered sandy peninsula that stretches for around 130 kilometres, beginning at the Murray Mouth in Goolwa.
