Coorong National Park

The Coorong National Park can be accessed from Tintinara via the Woods Well Road and is a journey of approximately 50km. The Coorong stretches from the Murray River mouth and features scattered islands, swampy marshes, salt pans, seeping water bogs, rock lined shores and teatree swamps. Flowing dunes highlight this landscape created by forces of wind.

The Coorong and Lower Lakes are a Wetland of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention, and provides drought refuge for 85 species including two nationally threatened species, the Orange-bellied Parrot and Mount Lofty Southern Emu Wren. Pelicans, waterfowl, wader bird, plovers and ducks of many species may be seen. The Coorong also supports a large number of native fish species including the nationally threatened Yarra Pygmy Perch.

There are a number of well sign posted nature walks starting near Salt Creek. A taste of the renowned Coorong Mullet is a must before you leave.
