Partner & I went on the 4 hour Cooyong Discovery Cruise as we were in Goolwa on a Thursday. Great trip with a lovely lunch of mixed cold meats and salads, bread roll, biscuits & cheese, tea & coffee.
The skipper Bain was very informative about the Coorong & the Barrages and had many stories of early days and the recent drought. Because of the silting up of the mouth we had to start from Hindmarsh Island – a 15min drive there from Goolwa. We had a short walk on the sand of the Mouth of the Murray, as well as a guided nature walk from the Coorong through to the Southern Ocean by Brendan which was also very informative. Lots of birds to see even though it wasn’t peak bird season.
A very enjoyable trip and totally recommended.
