Enjoy a six and a half hour expedition into the Coorong National Park, Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth area aboard a 14 seater passenger vessel with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea provided.
Departing the Goolwa Wharf heading upstream to Clayton, passing through Duck's Hospital while enjoying morning tea. Then pass Lake Alexandrina on our Port side while we head to the hand operated lock at Tauwitchere Barrage. Next stop is for lunch at Cattle Point in the beautiful Coorong National Park where we learn some of the Aboriginal Ngarrindjeri history and visit ancient midden sites.
We make our way towards the Murray Mouth and stop at either Barker's Knoll for a walk through the sand dunes to the spectacular Southern Ocean beach, where we try digging for cockles (during season) and learn about native bush tucker with your very experienced guide.
Cruise past the Mighty Murray Mouth and arrive at the Goolwa Barrage where we quite often get up close to the New Zealand fur seals before returning to the Goolwa wharf. This is the only cruise to circumnavigate Hindmarsh Island. With guided walks, seal colony, prolific birdlife, and commentary on board, this will be a trip to remember.
