5 star ratingWhat a wonderful experience Today we boarded the boot for the Coorong Adventure Cruise and what an adventure it was. We saw seals sunning on the lock structure while we sailed through the Goolwa Barrage, an abundance of birdlife all the way and had a taste of some Cocles prepared by the skipper Bain. We had a fantastic walk over the sand dunes at Barker's Knoll to the Southern Ocean Our host Lauchie explained how the local Ngarrindjeri People selected many vegetation for bush tucker and medicine. He demonstrated how they collected Cockels from the beach and lots of other interesting things. After boarding the vessel again we given a very nice and tasty lunch and sailed to Cattle point where we were guided by Bain to a few Middens used bythe local Aboriginal tribe and he demonstrated how the collected fresh drinking water from almost the top of the dunes. On our way back to Goolwa we were treated with some afternoon tea. Thank you guys for giving us these valuable lessons and looking after us so well.

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.
