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 ratingCoorong Discovery Tour Went on the six hour Coorong Cruise with Mr 15 and Ms 13. Fabulous Day. Bain & Dave were wonderful guides and hosts. The walks were informative and entertaining. Lunch was fabulous - and the pippis divine. Thank you so much. Very, very good way to finish 2017.

5 star ratingSpirit of the Coorong Cruises this was a beautiful day out with my husband that was booked as a spur of the moment event. It was an overcast day but we still sat upstairs on the boat and enjoyed the view and the very informed commentary from the 2 gentlemen who ran the show, drove the boat, did the tour guide thing and then feed us a lovely and filling lunch, morning and afternoon teas. All the amenities were spotless and every step was taken to ensure a safe and comfortable trip was had by all.

5 star ratingA Very Nice Day Out We had a very nice day out with the Spirit of the Coorong 4 hour Discovery Cruise. Due to the dredging that is currently happening, our start journey began from over on Hindmarsh Island rather than the usual Goolwa Wharf. Luckily, the weather was perfect and I recommend you go out up to the top deck for part of the journey to enjoy the fresh air and great views. We saw countless and varied species of birds...pelicans, black swans, cape barren geese, well as a few seals. We also made two stops ashore for a short walk and history/info on the area.

The cruise includes a delicious, individually packed lunchbox with a cuppa then afternoon tea with a cuppa and bikkies

The crew of three were excellent and made our day enjoyable and interesting. We all enjoyed our's a great way to see the Coorong and recommend it very highly!
