DESCRIPTION

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: The Goolwa Barrage, Barrage Road, Goolwa, South Australia Australia

Our Adventure Cruise departs from the Main Wharf in the old river port town of Goolwa.

Cruise to the Goolwa Barrage, through the lock and into the Coorong National Park to view the mouth of the River Murray.

Stop At: Coorong National Park, Meningie, South Australia 5264 Australia

From the mouth the cruise heads into the pristine waters of the Coorong, past the spectacular white sand dunes and birdlife, as your captain provides an informative and entertaining commentary on the passing scenes, bird life and history of the area.

Stop At: Younghusband Peninsula, Coorong SA 5264, Australia

Disembark for a guided walk through the sand dunes of the Younghusband Peninsula to the undisturbed white sandy beaches of the Great Southern Ocean. Along the walk your guide will talk about the cockle industry here, the sand dune flora and fauna and how the Aboriginal people lived in the area.

Stop At: Ewe Island, Coorong SA 5264, Australia

A delicious lunch of cold meats and salads is served with tea or coffee (special meals are available by prior request – vegetarian, gluten free etc) as the cruise continues deeper into the Coorong waterway. As you pass the Ewe Island and Tauwitchere Barrages, that separate the estuary Coorong from fresh water Lake Alexandrina, your captain will explain the man-made barrage and lock system that extends along the River Murray and tell you of the associated benefits and environmental impacts.
Deep into the Coorong, at Cattle Point, walk with your guide into the sand dunes again to learn more about the Aboriginal occupation of the area, see the middens left around their old campsites and discover fresh water as the Aboriginals did.

Afternoon tea is served as the cruise returns past the imposing sand dunes and back through the lock to the Goolwa Wharf where the cruise ends.
