TripAdvisor Reviews

5 star ratingGreat experience We did the Spirit of the Coorong Adventure Cruise, which involves two walks. The first over the Younghusband peninsula boardwalk to the Southern Ocean is an easy stroll rewarded by an opportunity to try your hand (or feet) at searching for cockles. Freshly cooked cockles are ready and waiting on your return to the boat. After lunch, which is a lovely packed picnic lunch box, there is a slightly more arduous walk at Cattle point to an aborigine midden. All through the trip there was excellent commentary and plenty of bird life to view.

The boat was full and booking is definitely recommended. Arrive a little early for your cruise and treat yourself to a coffee at Hector's cafe on the wharf.

5 star ratingCoorong Boat Cruise A relaxing, enjoyable and informative day. The crew provided an excellent history of the area and were very knowledgable with regards to the building, use and management of the barrages, past and current land use and local plant, animal and bird life.

The lunch and afternoon tea were lovely and most enjoyable.

The two walks through the sand hills to visit local points of interest were very interesting and worth the walk. Comfortable walking shoes should be wore.

5 star ratingMy mum said it knocked spots off spots I went with family aged 44-70 and everyone enjoyed it. There were also some kids on board who had a great time. You do need to enjoy scenery and birds to get the most out of the day. The sand dunes are amazing - huge and ever shifting, quite surreal.

If you have limited mobility you would not be able to do the walks. I can imagine this would be really hot mid summer, but on a warm autumn day it was lovely. Lunch was fine, but the mid morning feed of cockles was a major hit with many! Cooked up on a barbie on the beach and served out after a walk. Quite special.
