The Coorong National Park is a great place to see some of the 230-odd species of waders and other migratory birds that use the immediate area. Many species travel from China, Japan and Alaska to summer in the shallow lagoons and the Park and its surrounding Lower Murray Lakes are now listed on the RAMSAR register of significant international wetland areas of the World.

Murray River Mouth

If you have your own car, 15 minutes from the Cottages will have you parked on Hindmarsh Island opposite the point where the Murray River ends its 2,700 km journey through much of south eastern Australia and enters the Southern Ocean. The narrow mouth has been in the news of late with ongoing attempts to keep it open because of severely reduced river flows impacted by the current drought and water usage issues upstream.
