Interesting commentary gave a good overview of what we were seeing and history of the area We did the 3.5 hours tour which was a fascinating insight into the Coorong, the Murray river and the port of Goolwa. The walk over sand dunes was not too difficult and worthwhile to do, it was great to see the wild southern ocean. Nathan our guide introduced us to indigenous plants and gave an interesting insight into the local Aborigines. Lunch was healthy and filling and catered for food intolerences.
Fascinating 3.5h trip A really interesting trip exploring the tidal Murray and Murray Mouth. Excellent commentary.Good for bird watchers
Cockles poached in cream and white wine on pristine beach just one highlight! We joined the full 6 hour Coorong Tour between Xmas and New Year 2013. What a delight the whole day was! Our skipper and "Talking Coorong Encyclopedia" Mat must be the best tour guide I have ever heard and his assistant Dave did a great job of keeping us comfortable fed and watered. Mat presented a mind-boggling amount of information about the area in a relaxed and subtly humorous way. No full on comedy routine disguising a lack of detailed knowledge..just fascinating facts and anecdotes. The variety and diversity of bird-life on show was extraordinary as was Mat's ability to spot and identify even the rarer species. He was clearly also a very polished Boat Captain confident enough to tease us about the unlikely possibility of running aground on one of the ever shifting sandbars. There were too many highlights of the tour to list here but for me the most exciting was our walk through pristine sand dunes to the obvious remains of aboriginal camp sites with their huge piles of discarded cockle shells. As a local from Adelaide I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this previously unvisited wilderness area an hour from my home.
