About the neighborhood
Coorong Waterfront Retreat is nestled amongst a small, peaceful waterfront settlement of holiday houses, shacks and a few permanent residences. It is one of the few built locations fronting the Coorong National Park. The waterfront is rugged, natural and undeveloped. The Coorong (saline lagoon) stretches for 50kms in either direction and the water crossing in front of the Retreat is 2kms. Much of the crossing is shallow although it does exceed head height in parts. A fisher can sometimes be spotted setting a net for Coorong mullet (prized through Australia) directly out from the Retreat. The shoreline varies throughout the year but there is always space for making your way along the waterfront to explore or to launch the kayaks.
Getting around
You can use the kayaks provided and paddle on the lagoon directly in front of the house or you can drive to any of the many points of interest in the Coorong National Park or around the Lower Lakes.
