5 star ratingFabulous Day We celebrated a friend's birthday aboard and enjoyed a nice lunch which included native plants we tasted walking through the sand dunes! , Our host was excellent.

We learned so much about the area including history , wonderful bird life and enjoyed the relaxed life- style of the seals at barrage.

5 star ratingShowing off the Coorong to our English visitors, and revisiting this great trip after over 10 years We had experienced this adventure some 10 or so years ago, and thought that the company of our English friends was a good opportunity to revisit. We were delighted to see so many birds, and the commentary and passion of our guides Dan and Bain were informative and professional.

The walks were educational, and we were lucky enough to skirt a thunderstorm which provided a dramatic backdrop against the sand dunes. Lunch was fresh and filling - all in all it was a fantastic day - our visitors loved it too. Thanks to Bain and Dan - we'll be back to do it again soon.
