We have just spent the Easter weekend near The Coorong. We camped at Lake Albert Caravan Park in Meningie and toured around the area.
We did a day circuit trip from Meningie to Narrung by car. This trip took us around Lake Albert with highlights along the way - Raukan Indigenous Community, a pelican lookout, the only inland lighthouse in Australia (apparently) and the barrages that separate lake Albert from the River Murray. The scenery was superb, lots of pelicans and other birdlife and the beautiful water of the Coorong. Raukan was a highlight - it has the church that appears on the Australian $50 note and also David Unaipons grave in the cementary. In Raukan we made sure to ask the locals if it was okay to wander through the cemetary and take photos - we were made to feel very welcome and the local people were very willing to help and ask questions.
The second day was spent drving to 42 mile crossing and walking out to see the great Southern Ocean where the kids had a great time playing at the waters edge - the beach is great for fishing but is too dangerous for swimming.
The rest of our time was spent fishing, canoing and paddling around Lake Albert which was perfect for our kids - aged 11years and up.
The lake Albert Caravan Park is a perfect spot for camping or caravans but is overcrowded during Easter. We plan to go back at a less busy time. The local takeaways are great to eat at - good food, reasonably priced and very good service. The local pub was terrible - abysmal service, bad pub food - will not go back there.
Other highlights were attending the Anzac dawn service and having breakfast at the local RSL
