Discover this wonderland Why did we wait so long to discover the Coorong. The crew were great and gave you a balance of facts and intrigue about this magnificent part of south Australia. Food was good, plenty of time to walk along historical parts of the national park. Whether you want to relax for the day, experience the wildlife or learn about the history of the area, this is a must do trip.
The knowledge and delivery about the Coorong was the highlight The description of the fauna and the life of the Coorong was fantastic. The walks to the aboriginal sites were very informative. Both Bain and David was able to connect the life of yesterday experienced by both the indigenous and the early settlers and those of the recent times made the experience a treasure.Thanks for the wonderful lunch and afternoon tea which guys provided made the trip very relaxing
Cockles poached in cream and white wine on pristine beach just one highlight! We joined the full 6 hour Coorong Tour between Xmas and New Year 2013. What a delight the whole day was! Our skipper and "Talking Coorong Encyclopedia" Mat must be the best tour guide I have ever heard and his assistant Dave did a great job of keeping us comfortable fed and watered. Mat presented a mind-boggling amount of information about the area in a relaxed and subtly humorous way. No full on comedy routine disguising a lack of detailed knowledge..just fascinating facts and anecdotes. The variety and diversity of bird-life on show was extraordinary as was Mat's ability to spot and identify even the rarer species. He was clearly also a very polished Boat Captain confident enough to tease us about the unlikely possibility of running aground on one of the ever shifting sandbars. There were too many highlights of the tour to list here but for me the most exciting was our walk through pristine sand dunes to the obvious remains of aboriginal camp sites with their huge piles of discarded cockle shells. As a local from Adelaide I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this previously unvisited wilderness area an hour from my home.
