Comments and Photograph by Beth Nixon

This photograph was taken near Godfrey’s Landing while on a cruise down the Coorong from Goolwa.  The cruise was on ‘The Spirit of the Murray’, one of the Coorong Cruises’ vessels based at Goolwa, South Australia.

Godfrey’s Landing is a stop-off point for the vessel.

Passengers have the option of walking from a beach on the Coorong side where the boat is moored through sand hills on a board walk to the Great Southern Ocean.

There is also another boat – ‘Spirit of the Coorong’ – that is available for bookings.

The ‘Spirit’ trips are a great way to experience the beauty of the Murray River and the Coorong.

There are several options for length of the trip – three and a half hours or six hours – with shorter trips for groups, I understand.

5 star ratingSpirit of the Coorong This place has always been a "must do" ever since I read " Storm Boy " with the wonderful illustrations by Robert Ingpen. The day was glorious & the cruise lived up to all my expectations. The crew were so knowledgeable & helpful. Lunch was delicious. I am already looking forward to bringing my family back to share this adventure! Thankyou for a wonderful day!

5 star ratingMagnificent Wildlife We did the 6 hour Adventure Cruise which took us down the Younghusband Peninsula. Seals were frolicking at the Goolwa Barrage. We saw Emus, Pelicans, Cormorants, Swans and Pied Oyster Catchers. Being Spring, everything was coming to life. There was good water flow around the mouth of the River Murray - a welcome sight after years of drought. We had two walks through sandhills - one to the ocean and another to an Aboriginal midden. Be prepared for a little exercise to get through some deep sandy patches. Lunch on board the vessel was a nice assortment of cold meats and salads presented in our own container. The commentary was very informative and the Captain and staff looked after the group very well.
