Murray River, Lakes & Coorong

South Australia

The Murray River, Lakes & Coorong region of South Australia is as easy trip south-east from Adelaide. It’s well known for being a haven for houseboats, and for having a diverse and stunning environment. The mighty Murray River traverses the landscape and eventually spills into the Southern Ocean, dotted with picturesque towns such as Murray Bridge and Mannum along the way.

The flourishing wetlands around Lake Albert and Lake Alexandrina are teaming with wildlife and it’s also a place of windswept coastlines, wide open spaces, and one of the darkest skies on earth (you’ve never seen stars like it!).

With so many opportunities to hike, paddle, fish, swim, stroll and cycle, this region is made for active nature experiences. But, if you are seeking some solitude, this is also the place. Camp under the night sky, birdwatch in the Coorong National Park, or enjoy a picnic on a deserted beach. And did we mention the rich cultural history? Ngaut Ngaut Aboriginal site is a place of significant cultural importance, with guided tours providing a unique insight into the tra­di­tion­al landown­ers, their Dream­ings, oral his­to­ries, and rock art.
