Spirit of the Coorong Cruise

Depart the pier for a scenic trip into Adelaide's Southern Region and Fleurieu Peninsula as you explore the Coorong on an Eco cruise. Next, board your coach for the scenic journey (approximately 120 minutes) to the river port of Goolwa, rich in maritime history and the gateway to the Murray mouth - the place where the Murray River reaches the sea. Board your eco cruise for a gentle cruise to the Goolwa Barrage, through the lock and into the Coorong to view the mouth of the River Murray. From the mouth the cruise heads into the pristine waters of the Coorong National Park, past the spectacular white sand dunes and birdlife, as your captain provides an informative and entertaining commentary on the passing scenes. A delicious lunch of cold meats and salads is served with tea or coffee as the cruise continues to Godfrey’s Landing. Here you disembark for a guided boardwalk 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 describe the sand dune flora and fauna and explain how the aboriginal people lived in the area. On return to the boat, cruise further into the Coorong to see another of the barrages separating the Coorong from 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. 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. Reboard the motor coach as you head back towards Adelaide and the pier.
