A rare opportunity to visit one of South Australia’s magic, secluded places.

(Departs Meningie 9.00am, returns Meningie 4.00pm and then returns to Adelaide 6.30pm)

We will explore by foot and by boat the Coorong area, which includes the lakes and Barrages. The Coorong is where the mighty Murray River enters the sea. As a habitat for numerous species of migratory birds and as a refuge for birds in times of drought, the Coorong is important in a national and international sense. The Coorong is also an archeological site of national importance with middens and burial sites throughout the park, providing evidence of Aboriginal occupation over many thousands of years.
We will visit points of interest including the barrages and take a boat across to the Coorong Sandhills. We will walk across to the Southern Ocean. The area has controversial seal populations recently inhabiting this area.

Tour includes morning and afternoon tea and a picnic lunch

Other information: Perfect for those doing our farm gate tour the day before, as Meningie is the town right by the organic farm.
Overnight accommodation required in Meningie the night before tour (Friday night). Delegates should book their own accomodation. Contact the co-ordinator for options.

Buses will pick people up in Meningie at 9am to begin the tour. Buses depart from Meningie at 4pm and return to Adelaide approx. 6.30pm
