Coorong Life


A saltwater swim after a short Kayak in The Coorong is an enchanting experience that allows you to immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. The serene saltwater lagoon provides a sense of tranquility, while the sight of pelicans soaring overhead adds a touch of elegance and awe. By exploring this ecological haven with reverence and appreciation, we can forge a deeper connection with the environment and ourselves.

Derived from an Aboriginal word ‘karangk’ meaning narrow neck, the Coorong is one of the most breath-taking national parks in Australia. 

The Coorong is a long, shallow, brackish to hypersaline lagoon more than 100 kilometres long. It is separated from the ocean by a narrow sand dune peninsula.
