Spirit of the Coorong

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Spirit of the Coorong operate 1.5, 3.5 and 6 hour cruises departing from the historic port of Goolwa, 90 km south of Adelaide. Cruise to the Murray Mouth on the 1.5 hour Murray Mouth cruise, or across the Murray Mouth and into the wetland wilderness of the Coorong National Park on a 3.5 hr Coorong Discovery or 6 hour Coorong Adventure cruise.

Visit the area where both Storm Boy films were filmed, by the spectacular 90 mile beach. Look for the Storm Boy inspired character Mr Percival.

The long, narrow, Coorong wetland lagoon complex extends almost 150 kilometres from the Murray Mouth and is a special place of great beauty and tranquility. The book, and later the movie Storm Boy were based in the Coorong wetland area.

Recognised for spectacular sand-dune scenery and internationally significant as a migratory wader and waterfowl refuge, the Coorong is spiritually significant to the local Ngarrindjeri Aboriginal people and has archaeological sites attesting to Aboriginal occupation and use of the area over many thousands of years.

Enjoy the Captain’s commentary on the Aboriginal and European history, ecology and bird life of the area. Guided walk(s), a delicious lunch, and afternoon tea are included.
