Canoe the Coorong November 21, 2015
Just 85 km south of Adelaide is the internationally recognized Coorong Wetlands that stretch more than 130 kilometres.
The Coorong National Park protects a string of spectacular saltwater lagoons which are sheltered from the Southern Ocean by the sweeping, rolling sand dunes of the Younghusband Peninsula and the best way to explore these waterways is by kayak.
It’s a journey of stunning landscapes, peaceful indulgence, majestic pelicans, captivating fur seals, and the rolling thunder of the Southern Ocean.
