Long white sands
with many wetlands
visit the coorong
Located just 85 km south of Adelaide is the internationally recognised Coorong Wetlands.
Stretching more than 140 kilometres, the Coorong National Park protects a string of spectacular saltwater lagoons which are sheltered from the Southern Ocean by the sweeping, rolling sand dunes of the Young Husband Peninsula.
The best way to explore these waterways is by kayak.
Kayaking is the most enjoyable and sustainable way to see the Coorong, allowing an intimate experience with the wildlife of the Coorong without impacting the natural ecology.
Something for Everyone
Canoe the Coorong offers tours for people of all ages and skill levels. Popular tours include a three-hour Coorong Sunset Tour of the Murray Mouth, a half-day Winter Kayaking Tour, a full day all-inclusive Coorong Tour, Overnight Camps and, for real adventurers, a Four-Day Expedition covering almost 100km.
The Coorong Tour is a comprehensive experience, offering participants an all-inclusive relaxing day on the water exploring the Coorong and Murray River Mouth region.
The tour cruises along at a pace that allows guests to take in the natural wonders and wildlife that the Coorong has to offer. Included in this adventure is a ‘bush tucker’ walk through the sand dunes, cockle (pipi) catching and cooking lessons.
If you have a few people that are like-minded then you can book out Canoe The Coorong for the day and a whole range of exclusive tailor-made tours can be arranged, from bird watching tours (including the pelican breeding islands), corporate team building activities, as well as activities for school groups. Kayak hire is also available. All meals and equipment are supplied.
