Overview

Cruise from the old riverport of Goolwa, through the Barrage lock and across the River Murray mouth into the wetland wilderness and spectacular sand dunes of the Coorong National Park. See a seal colony lazing on the Barrage, flocks of native and migratory bird life and hear some of the Aboriginal and European history of the area. Expert commentary by the captain, lunch, afternoon tea and guided walk(s)are included on 3.5 hour DISCOVERY and 6 hour ADVENTURE cruises. For a shorter alternative a 2 hour MURRAY MOUTH cruise operates on Saturday mornings & Thursday mornings of the school holidays, during the months of October and April.

Not exactly exciting but Quite interesting and enjoyable both the boat part and the off shore walk. Guides/ narrators were very good. Nice cold lunch in bento box style. Basic packet biscuits for afternoon tea.
